9780127752259: Maternal Substance Abuse and the Developing Nervous System

The purpose of this book is to review the basic science and clinical findings concerning maternal substance abuse and the developing nervous system of unborn children. The short-term but vitally significant repercussions of such exposure on biological development, with particular reference to the nervous system, are discussed. The book also discusses the profound influence of maternal substance abuse on behavior in adulthood, which is caused by subtle changes in the chemistry or structure of the developing nervous system. The subject will not only be of interest to clinical and basic science researchers and teachers in the field of maternal substance abuse, but also to individuals in psychology, social work, cellular and molecular biolgoy, embryology, neuroscience, pharmacology, and in clinical professions such as pediatrics, neonatology, and obstetrics. The breadth of topics covered includes alcohol, cocaine, opiates, nicotine, benzodiazepines, marijuana, and the role of stress and hormones. Emphasis is placed on the relationship of the effects of substance abuse on neurotrophic factors and receptors.

  • Shows how abused substances act directly or indirectly to mimic or influence the action of neurotrophic factors
  • Explains that the transient expression of peptides, neurotransmitters, and receptors can be markedly disturbed by drugs
  • Demonstrates that animal and tissue culture studies are consistent with clinical observations and important in understanding and ameliorating adverse actions of drugs in early life

This book reviews the latest information on the effects of maternal drug consumption on fetal, neonatal, infant, and subsequent adult nervous systems. It emphasizes the cellular and molecular mechanisms of drug action and the clinical implications of impaired nervous system development. The book includes chapters on cocaine, opioids, nicotine, alcohol, and marijuana, emphasizing the transfer of substances from mother to fetus. Animal and tissue culture models used to study the effects of maternal substance abuse on offspring are also addressed.
