Article on Prenatal Development in Humans

The article I found discusses the links between prenatal development and brain maturation through and after puberty. They studied different environments in which a fetus was developed and linked it to different characteristics that came out after in life including growth and brain function/ development. This article relates not only to what we are currently learning but also what we will be learning throughout the semester. It ties in prenatal development, which we are going over now, and links it to the growth over the early life span, which we will continue to learn this semester.
