This study investigated the effect of very preterm birth (gestation < or =30wks) and very low birth weight (< or =1500g) on the development of magnocellular and parvocellular visual processing streams. Participants were preterm infants (n=55: 31 females, 24 males) born between 24 and 30 weeks'gestation (mean 27.4wks [SD 1.3]), weighing between 720 and 1470g(More)
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the visual development of preterm infants from 1 to 6 mo of age, using the pattern visual evoked potentials (VEP) in response to three check sizes: 60, 30, and 15 min of arc. Pattern VEP were recorded in 24 full-term and 24 preterm infants (26-36 wk of gestation). The results showed a rapid visual maturation between(More)
The aim of this study was to determine, in infants born at < or =29 weeks postmenstrual age until 32 weeks postmenstrual age, whether reduction to light stimulation by occlusion of eyes affected central visual development. The pattern visual-evoked potential responses at 41 and 51 weeks postmenstrual age and 3 y of age did not differ between infants(More)
The aim of the study was to evaluate the pattern visual evoked potentials (PVEP) combined with an optimal state of vigilance, called liberated state (LS), in order to improve testing in very young infants. Transient PVEP were recorded in response to a checkerboard pattern of 120, 60 and 30 min of arc. in 56 fullterm newborns and 79 preterm infants from(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate whether secondary impairment of the transmethylation pathway is a mechanism underlying the neurologic involvement in homocystinuria due to remethylation defects. METHODS Twelve patients with neurologic disease due to remethylation defects were examined by brain magnetic resonance spectroscopic imaging ((1)H MRSI). Brain(More)
