Abstract: Converging evidence suggests that fetal vulnerability to adverse prenatal exposures increases the risk for later neuropsychological dysfunction. Recent advances in-vivo human fetal magnetic resonance imaging is affording us with an unprecedented opportunity to study the onset and timing of prevalent pediatric neurodevelopmental disorders that have their footprint in the womb. We will explore the role of these leading-edge technologies in   the emerging frontier of prenatal precision neuroscience.
