INTRODUCTION Quantitative MRI measurements have revealed abnormalities in cortical development in children born preterm with very-low-birth-weight (VLBW). These children also have increased risk of cognitive deficits that persist into adulthood. The aim of this study was to investigate cortical surface area in VLBW young adults at age 19 compared with controls and to see whether surface area change was associated with cognitive function in the VLBW group. METHODS Thirty-eight VLBW (BW ≤ 1500… CONTINUE READING
