Environmental factors affecting the nervous system and health: the prenatal and perinatal period.

This article presents data from a number of researchers in the fields of fetal programming, prenatal and perinatal psychology, neurophysiology, and development including Thomas Verny, Peter Nathanielsz, Marshall Klaus and John Kennell.

This data increasingly supports the findings that the prenatal and perinatal environments play a role in affecting risk for adult health and disease. Stress and other factors during early life, for example, influence developing organ systems such as the nervous system, and can affect receptors and physiological regulatory processes in ways that last into adulthood.
