Boys (7-12 years) performed an experimental task which produced microtremors in the index finger. Differences found between those exposed to drugs in-utero and two matched control groups ("drug lifestyle" and standard) suggest that in-utero exposure to drugs may leave subtle long-term residual effects which require intervention.
