Maternal Smoking During Pregnancy and ADHD: A Comprehensive Clinical and Neurocognitive Characterization
Nicotine & Tobacco Research, 04/26/2012
Thakur GA et al. – The results suggest that maternal smoking during pregnancy (MSDP) is associated with a more severe form of attention–deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), characterized by more severe clinical manifestations and poorer neuropsychological performance. This phenotypic signature associated with MSDP may help to identify a more homogenous subgroup of children with ADHD.
