Research by Dobbing and colleagues established the precept of a vulnerable period for neurodevelopment as reviewed elsewhere (Dobbing 1982), which in the human cerebellar cortex extends > 1 year after birth, rendering it susceptible to the effects of postnatal ETS (Dobbing 1982; Friede 1973; Koop et al.
