Despite advances in knowledge and technology, accurate prediction of later neuromotor outcomes for infants born preterm remains somewhat elusive. Here we review some of the most recent findings regarding the differential effects of preterm birth and suboptimal fetal growth on neurodevelopment. Evidence from transcranial magnetic stimulation studies is(More)
The mechanisms underlying the altered neurodevelopment commonly experienced by children born preterm, but without brain lesions, remain unknown. While individuals born the earliest are at most risk, late preterm children also experience significant motor, cognitive and behavioural dysfunction from school age, and reduced income and educational attainment in(More)
