. Prenatal exposure to the herbicide 2,4-D is associated with deficits in auditory processing during infancy. Environ Res. 2019;172:486-494 pubmed publisher
..Prenatal exposure to the herbicide 2,4-D was associated with slower auditory signal transmission in early infancy. ABR latencies reflect auditory pathway maturation and longer latencies may indicate delayed auditory development. ..

. Prenatal exposure to multiple pesticides is associated with auditory brainstem response at 9months in a cohort study of Chinese infants. Environ Int. 2016;92-93:478-85 pubmed publisher
..Infants with lower cord blood ferritin appeared to be more sensitive to the effects of prenatal pesticide exposure on ABR latency delay, suggesting an additive or multiplicative effect. ..
