The fetal behaviour of 15 asymmetrical intrauterine growth retarded (IUGR) fetuses was compared to that of a control group of healthy fetuses. Fetuses underwent simultaneous cardiotocographic and ultrasonographic examinations for 2 consecutive hours at 36-38 weeks' gestation. Behavioural states analysis was carried out by means of a computerized system (Digital PDP 11) that allowed the recording of several fetal variables including heart rate (FHR), gross body movements (FM), eye movements (FEM… Expand
Behavioural development and Doppler velocimetry in relation to perinatal outcome in small for dates fetuses.
TLDR
Porest state development is present in SFD fetuses at highest risk and in this group there appears to be a significant relationship between the degree of utero-placental insufficiency (RI) and disturbances in behavioural development. Expand

TLDR
SGA is associated with decreased movements even in the absence of hypoxia, and was a factor that decreased the positive epoch ratio and the average movements number, and increased the average number and duration, and the longest duration of non-movement period. Expand

TLDR
A new scoring system for the assessment of fetal neurological status by 4D sonography named Kurjak antenatal neurodevelopmental test (KANET), based on previous observations and several years of investigation, is proposed. Expand
Pregnancy-induced hypertension, antihypertensive drugs and the development of fetal behavioural states.
TLDR
The results show that in PIH treated by antihypertensive drugs, there are disturbances in the development of fetal behavioural states with higher percentages of NOC and C1F, lower percentages of C2F, and higher UA RI values. Expand
Predictors of perinatal outcome in intrauterine growth retardation: a long term study
TLDR
S1F is the best predictor of severe IUGR and significant for all the perinatal outcomes selected; S2F isThe best predictors of mild IugR andsignificant for SGA; UA RI is thebest parameter for recognizing mild IUGr and evolution to severe IUBR. Expand
Sleep–wake cycles in normal fetuses
TLDR
The number of FHR accelerations per hour in an active state increased with advancing gestational age, whereas the baseline FHR gradually decreased, and normal ranges of fetal sleep–wake cycles were established. Expand
Fetal Behavior in High-risk Pregnancies Assessed by 2D and 3D/4D Ultrasound: A Review
Direct assessment of functional development of the fetal central nervous system is not possible, but the assessment of fetal behavior may provide the possibility to distinct between normal andExpand
Fetal growth restriction due to placental disease.
TLDR
A discussion of the fetal responses to placental insufficiency and a management protocol that accounts for multiple Doppler and biophysical parameters as well as gestational age is provided in this review. Expand

TLDR
Observational and management studies do not suggest that fetal deterioration has an independent impact on neurodevelopment in early‐onset FGR, and further research needs to establish benefits of perinatal intervention, as the pattern of vulnerability and effects of fetal deterioration appear to differ in the third trimester.

Motor behaviour in the growth retarded fetus.
TLDR
It is speculated that the reduced variability of motor patterns may find its origin in a change of central neural function, just as the reduced heart rate variability and decreased breathing irregularity found in IUGR fetuses. Expand
Behavioural states in growth-retarded human fetuses.
TLDR
The growth-retarded fetuses showed differences in the quality and quantity of somatic motility in comparison to low risk fetuses of equivalent gestational age, and these observations suggest that some aspects of central nervous system function are disturbed in growth- retarding fetuses, even in the absence of fetal distress.

FETAL BREATHING PATTERNS IN INTRAUTERINE GROWTH RETARDATION
TLDR
Fetal breathing movements were studied with real time ultrasound in 21 normal fetuses and 30 fetuses born small‐ for‐dates (less than the 5th centile) and in 17 of the small‐for‐dates group amount of breathing was reduced with short breathing episodes and long apnoea intervals. Expand
Are there behavioural states in the human fetus?
TLDR
The conclusion is reached that periods of coincidence occurred by chance and did not represent organized behavioural states in the human fetus. Expand
The development of fetal behavioural states: A longitudinal study
TLDR
In order to evaluate the development of fetal behavioural states a longitudinal study was performed on 35 healthy fetuses during the last trimester of pregnancy, finding that some fetal biophysical activites seemed to become related around this cycle. Expand

Evidence is presented to suggest that the H/A circumference ratio can be used to distinguish between symmetrical and asymmetrical growth retardation. Expand

Ontogenesis of sleep in human prematures after 32 weeks of conceptional age.
TLDR
The premature at 40 weeks of gestational age has not attained a level of organization as high as that of the full-term newborn, and an hypothesis suggesting a possible mechanism of this discrepancy is presented. Expand

TLDR
It is demonstrated that knowledge of fetal behavioural states is necessary for an adequate interpretation of the fetal heart rate patterns and concluded that further studies on fetal behaviour have to be 'standardized' for behavioural states. Expand
