Brain development occurs quickly in young children, and continues throughout childhood and adolescence. Prenatal alcohol exposure can affect brain structure and cause altered brain development in children. It is important to understand how brain development is altered with prenatal alcohol exposure, in order to develop effective screening tools and treatment options. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) can provide valuable information about brain structure and function. The purpose of this study is to examine brain development in children using MRI. Both children with and without prenatal alcohol exposure are included in this study.
