  • Percentage responses were compared by using χ2 tests; implicit times and amplitudes were compared by using Mann-Whitney tests. IT, implicit time; —, not significant.

  • a Adjusted P value is after correcting for occipitofrontal head circumference, maternal smoking, and excess maternal alcohol intake during pregnancy with a linear regression model for VEP amplitude and a binary logistic regression model for the prevalence of VEP components.

  • b Percentage of VEPs containing the individual component.

  • c Median (interquartile range) for implicit times and amplitude.
