The purpose of the study is to assess associations of fetal growth across the normal range with structure and function of the brain in adolescence.

As fetal growth is an indicator of an adverse prenatal developmental environment, permanent effects on brain development might help to explain associations between prenatal developmental factors and behaviour which have been found in earlier studies. This study is a collaborative effort between the School of Psychology, the MRC Epidemiology Resource Centre in Southampton and the University of Oxford’s Centre for Functional MRI of the Brain (FMRIB).
