The Effect of Intrauterine PCB Exposure on Visual Recognition Memory.
Jacobson, Sandra W.; And Others
Child Development, v56 n4 p853-60 Aug 1985
Measures of prenatal exposure in 123 infants to polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), cord serum PCB level, and maternal report of contaminated fish consumption predicted less preference for a novel stimulus on Fagan's test of visual recognition memory (VRM) at 7 months. Preference for novelty decreased in a dose-dependent fashion and postnatal exposure from nursing was not related to VRM. (Author/RH)
