Prenatal maternal stress from a natural disaster predicts dermatoglyphic asymmetry in humans
Development and Psychopathology
Dermatoglyphic asymmetry of fingertip ridge counts is more frequent in schizophrenia patients than normal controls, and may reflect disruptions in fetal development during Weeks 14-22 when fingerprints develop. However, there are no data in humans linking specific adverse events at specific times to dermatoglyphic asymmetries. Our objective was to determine whether prenatal exposure to a natural disaster (1998 Quebec ice storm) during Weeks 14-22 would result in increased dermatoglyphicdoi:10.1017/s0954579409000364 pmid:19338687 fatcat:ckvicdxxgjhd5da2cuj4qmnmom
