    Peter G Hepper
    School of Psychology, The Queen s University, Belfast, BT7 1NN, UK
    Neuropsychologia 43:313-5. 2005
    ..The study indicates that the prenatal exhibition of lateralised motor behaviour, in this case thumb sucking, is indeed related to postnatal handedness, perhaps more strongly for right 'handed' fetuses than left 'handed' fetuses...

    School of Psychology, Queen s University of Belfast, Belfast, BT7 1NN, UK
    Dev Psychobiol 55:588-95. 2013
    ..The paper concludes that the initial developmental emergence of lateralized behavior is under genetic control and is a fundamental feature of prenatal human development...
  4. doi request reprint Long-term flavor recognition in humans with prenatal garlic experience
    Peter G Hepper
    School of Psychology, Queen s University of Belfast, Belfast BT7 1NN, N Ireland, UK
    Dev Psychobiol 55:568-74. 2013

    Peter G Hepper
    Fetal Behaviour Research Centre, School of Psychology, Queen s University Belfast, Belfast, UK
    Alcohol Clin Exp Res 36:2168-75. 2012

    Peter G Hepper
    School of Psychology, Queen s University, Belfast BT7 INN, UK
    Dev Sci 15:373-83. 2012
    ..This study suggests that research examining prenatal behaviour should consider the factor of fetal sex. This may be particularly pertinent where there is an intention to use the results diagnostically...

    Primates 53:121-6. 2012
    ..No dishabituation was noted when using water as the stimulus across all trials or when used as the novel odour. Overall, results show that gorillas are able to discriminate between odours...
