Intentions : « In this study, we examine behavioral performance and ERPs [event-related potentials] in a sample of 11-year-old Inuit children from Arctic Quebec whose mothers engaged in binge drinking during pregnancy (ALC) compared with controls whose mothers did not (CON). » (p. 71)
Échantillon/Matériau : « We recorded ERPs in 217 children from Inuit communities in Arctic Quebec (M age = 11.3 years) [...]. » (p. 69)
Instruments: - The Go/No-go task - The CRT task (continuous recognition memory task)
Type de traitement des données : Analyse statistique
Results « [...] show that, even in tasks in which alcohol-exposed children exhibit behavioral performance that is comparable to controls, fetal alcohol exposure is associated with altered neurophysiological processing of response inhibition and recognition memory. The data suggest that fetal alcohol exposure is associated with reduced efficiency in the initial extracting of the meaning of a stimulus, reduced allocation of attention to the task, and poorer conscious, explicit recognition memory processing. » (p. 69)
