When a mother abuses alcohol during pregnancy, the offspring can suffer a myriad of abnormalities, collectively known as fetal alcohol spectrum disorder (FASD). Foremost among these abnormalities is central nervous system dysfunction, which commonly manifests itself as mental retardation, clumsiness, hyperactivity, and poor attention span. These behavior problems are due, in large part, to alcohol-induced neuronal losses in the developing fetal brain. However, not all fetuses are equally… Expand
