Background:Higher cortical function during sensory processing can be examined by recording specific somatosensory-evoked magnetic fields (SEFs) with magnetoencephalography (MEG). We evaluated whether, in extremely low-gestational-age (ELGA) infants, abnormalities in MEG-recorded SEFs at term age are associated with adverse neurodevelopment at 2 y of corrected age.Methods:SEFs to tactile stimulation of the index finger were recorded at term age in 30 ELGA infants (26.5 ± 1.2 wk, birth weight… CONTINUE READING
