Background alcohol exposure (PAE) is linked to impaired performance on tests of retrospective memory but prospective memory (PM; the ability to remember and act on delayed intentions) has not been examined in alcohol-exposed children. We investigated event-based PM in children with heavy PAE and the degree to which associations between PAE and PM are influenced by IQ executive functioning (EF) retrospective memory and attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).
