Environmental tobacco smoke, inhaled by active firsthand smokers and their entourage, is associated with morbidity and mortality. Many children are passively exposed to secondhand smoke worldwide. Infants and young children account for the largest global disease burden associated with prenatal and postnatal secondhand smoke, probably due to underdeveloped neurological, immune, and respiro-circulatory systems. There is an increasingly robust association between tobacco smoke exposure, before and… 
Tobacco Use and Smoke Exposure in Children: New Trends, Harm, and Strategies to Improve Health Outcomes
TLDR
There is no “safe or risk-free” level of tobacco use or exposure in childhood and adolescence, and tobacco use and exposure must be decreased using evidenced-based strategies to improve child health.
Tobacco Smoke and Nicotine
TLDR
This chapter focuses on the development of the nervous system and the ways in which this plastic process can be affected by nicotine and tobacco smoke, leading to pathological consequences that can be expressed throughout the lifespan.
The effects of nicotine on human fetal development.
TLDR
Electronic cigarette use during pregnancy is largely perceived as being safer to use in pregnancy than traditional cigarettes, although there is not adequate evidence to support this claim.
Early postnatal tobacco smoke exposure triggers anxiety-like behavior and decreases synaptic proteins even after a long exposure-free period in mice
TLDR
Behavioral and biochemical data indicate that exposure to ETS during a critical development period leads to anxiety-like behavior and blunted synaptic proteins levels in different regions of the brain.
Maternal Smoking during Pregnancy: A Review of the Effects of Maternal Tobacco Use on Fetal Brain Development
TLDR
Heterogeneity in the timing of brain development, assessment measures used for mother smoking habit and inconsistencies in adjustment for confounders, limits the synthesis and interpretation of findings.
Early Childhood Household Smoke Exposure Predicts Less Task-Oriented Classroom Behavior at Age 10

TLDR
Compared with their never exposed peers, children exposed to transient and continuous early childhood household smoke showed proportionately less classroom engagement, which reflects task-orientation, following directions, and working well autonomously and with others.
A prenatal nicotine exposure mouse model of methylphenidate responsive ADHD-associated cognitive phenotypes
TLDR
A PNE mouse model is reported that displays the full range of ADHD associated behavioral phenotypes including working memory deficit, attention deficit and impulsive‐like behavior and may be a suitable preclinical model for ADHD research.
Frontal Cortex Proteome Perturbation after Juvenile Rat Secondhand Smoke Exposure
TLDR
The effect of juvenile secondhand smoke exposure on the prefrontal cortex, a principal part of the brain involved in behavioral control, is characterized and the neuroproteomic response reflects a prominent perturbation within the glutamatergic synaptic system, suggesting aberrant, disorganized excitation as observed underlying psychiatric disorders.
Association between postnatal second-hand smoke exposure and ADHD in children: a systematic review and meta-analysis
TLDR
The meta-analysis results suggested that postnatal exposure to SHS exposure may be a risk factor for ADHD and that SHS Exposure may be associated with some adverse behavioral outcomes.
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder in the Light of the Epigenetic Paradigm
TLDR
The aim of this paper was to review epigenetics and ADHD focused on how multidimensional mechanisms influence the behavioral phenotype.

Prenatal tobacco smoke and postnatal secondhand smoke exposure and child neurodevelopment
TLDR
Prenatal tobacco and postnatal secondhand smoke exposure is consistently associated with problems in multiple domains of children's neurodevelopment and behavior, including irritability, oppositional defiant behavior, conduct disorders and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.
Prenatal and Adolescent Exposure to Tobacco Smoke Modulates the Development of White Matter Microstructure
TLDR
White matter microstructure in 67 adolescent smokers and nonsmokers with and without prenatal exposure to maternal smoking was examined, finding nicotine-induced disruption of the development of auditory corticofugal fibers may interfere with the ability of these fibers to modulate ascending auditory signals, leading to greater noise and reduced efficiency of neurocircuitry that supports auditory processing.
Developmental consequences of prenatal tobacco exposure
TLDR
Results from published, in press, and conference proceedings from 2007 and 2008 that link in-utero tobacco exposure to neurodevelopmental outcomes in exposed offspring that appear to be moderated by genetic variability, neurobehavioral disinhibition, and sex are reviewed.
The Effects of Tobacco Smoke and Nicotine on Cognition and the Brain
TLDR
The reviewed evidence suggests caution with the use of medicinal nicotine in pregnant mothers and older adults at risk for certain neurological disease, and the assessment of cognition-related genotypes to better understand the role of interactions between smoking/nicotine and variation in genotype in determining susceptibility to the neurotoxic effects of smoking and the putative beneficial effects of medicinal Nicotine.
Secondhand Smoke Exposure and Neurobehavioral Disorders Among Children in the United States
TLDR
The findings of the study underscore the health burden of childhood neurobehavioral disorders that may be attributable to secondhand tobacco smoke exposure in homes in the United States.
Prenatal and postnatal environmental tobacco smoke exposure and children's health.
TLDR
A large literature links both prenatal maternal smoking and children's ETS exposure to decreased lung growth and increased rates of respiratory tract infections, otitis media, and childhood asthma, with the severity of these problems increasing with increased exposure.
Effects of prenatal cigarette smoke exposure on neurobehavioral outcomes in 10-year-old children of adolescent mothers.
TLDR
The results are consistent with results from an earlier assessment when the children were age 6, demonstrating that the effects of prenatal tobacco exposure can be identified early and are consistent through middle childhood.
Maternal smoking and behavior problems of children.
TLDR
Data from the population-based National Longitudinal Survey of Youth were used to investigate the possible association of maternal smoking and behavior problems among 2256 children aged 4 through 11 years.
Effect of environmental exposure to lead and tobacco smoke on inattentive and hyperactive symptoms and neurocognitive performance in children.
TLDR
Findings indicate that environmental exposure to tobacco smoke in children is associated with poor neurocognitive performance, and low levels of lead are associated with inattentive and hyperactivity symptoms.
Maternal smoking, drinking or cannabis use during pregnancy and neurobehavioral and cognitive functioning in human offspring
TLDR
It is concluded that prenatal exposure to either maternal smoking, alcohol or cannabis use is related to some common neurobehavioral and cognitive outcomes, including symptoms of ADHD, increased externalizing behavior, decreased general cognitive functioning, and deficits in learning and memory tasks.
