  • Maternal binge drinking has obvious detrimental effects on the developing fetus. These effects include development of the phenotype of the fetal alcohol spectrum disorder and disordered development of the central nervous system (CNS). The mechanism of the CNS damage has been speculated to be fetal hypoxia or, perhaps more pertinently, fetal CNS tissue hypoxia. This hypothesis is not easily examined in small animal models of fetal alcohol exposure because of the inaccessibility of the developing… CONTINUE READING
