ABSTRACT Prenatal methamphetamine exposure has become an increasingly pervasive concern, especially in rural-based populations and populations of lower socioeconomic status. While research has begun to highlight the effects of prenatal methamphetamine exposure, the long-term impact of this exposure remains an under-investigated topic. This study attempts to investigate the neurocognitive and neurodevelopmental effects of prenatal methamphetamine exposure by comparing the index and full-scale IQ… 

Prenatal Methamphetamine- impact on the mother and child - a review.

There are limited data on the outcomes of pregnant MA users but there is rapidly emerging evidence to suggest that they are more vulnerable, marginalized and impoverished compared with other drug-using mothers.

Prenatal Methamphetamine Exposure could Cause Chronic Abnormalities in Transcriptomic Pattern; an Extended Follow-up Cohort Study

It seems that Methamphetamine abuse before and during the pregnancy period may affect the expression profile of children, and these changes could be remain years after birth.

Individual and Combined Association Between Prenatal Polysubstance Exposure and Childhood Risk of Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder

P prenatal opioid exposure was significantly associated with the highest childhood risk of ADHD among all substances measured and interactions between exposure to opioids and cannabis as well as opioids and alcohol were also associated with ADHD risk.



Abnormalities in parentally rated executive function in methamphetamine/polysubstance exposed children

The Effect of Prenatal Methamphetamine Exposure on Attention as Assessed by Continuous Performance Tests: Results from the Infant Development, Environment, and Lifestyle Study

Prenatal methamphetamine exposure was associated with subtle differences in K-CPT scores at 5.5 years of age, and even at this relatively young age, these children exhibit indicators of risk for ADHD and warrant monitoring.

Effects of prenatal methamphetamine exposure: a review of cognitive and neuroimaging studies

Present knowledge on the cognitive and behavioral outcomes of PME is summarized, based on a review of the neuroimaging, neuropsychology, and neuroscience literature published in the past 15 years, and challenges endemic to research on prenatal drug exposure are discussed.

Prenatal methamphetamine exposure and inhibitory control among young school-age children.

Smaller subcortical volumes and cognitive deficits in children with prenatal methamphetamine exposure

Pregnancy outcome and neurodevelopment of children exposed in utero to psychoactive drugs: the Motherisk experience.

An overview of the Motherisk Program data on pregnancy outcome and neurodevelopment of children exposed in utero to selected psychoactive drugs and the safety of antidepressants during pregnancy is established by demonstrating that the mean IQ and language scores are comparable in the 3 groups.

Sex-Specific Alterations of White Matter Developmental Trajectories in Infants With Prenatal Exposure to Methamphetamine and Tobacco.

Prenatal methamphetamine/tobacco exposure may lead to delays in motor development, with less coherent fibers and less myelination in SCR and PCR only in male infants, but these abnormalities may normalize by ages 3 to 4 months after cessation of stimulant exposure.

Altered neurometabolites and motor integration in children exposed to methamphetamine in utero

Frontostriatal Connectivity in Children during Working Memory and the Effects of Prenatal Methamphetamine, Alcohol, and Polydrug Exposure

Functional connectivity MRI results suggest that localized brain abnormalities resulting from prenatal exposure to alcohol and/or methamphetamine lead to a partial rewiring of corticostriatal networks.
