Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The aims of this paper are (i) to consider how best to examine effects of long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acid nutritional supplementation or deficiency on infant neurobehavioral development, after controlling for other factors that might influence outcome, including maternal demographic, intellectual, and personality characteristics, and (ii) to present new findings on the relation between visual acuity and processing speed and the effects of prenatal alcohol exposure and visual acuity on infant information processing. The following topics are also addressed: (i) breastfeeding and intelligence, (ii) criteria for the selection and control of potential confounding variables, and (iii) new infant information processing measures.
