As the production of interneurons continues until the end of pregnancy, we hypothesized that premature birth would disrupt interneuron production and restoration of the hypoxic milieu or estrogen treatment(More)
Intraventricular hemorrhage (IVH) leads to reduced myelination and astrogliosis of the white matter in premature infants. No therapeutic strategy exists to minimize white matter injury in survivors with IVH.
