OBJECTIVES To compare the age of onset of the pattern orientation reversal visual evoked potential (OR-VEP) in a group of very low birthweight (VLBW) premature infants with term infants matched for postconceptual age at testing. The OR-VEP measure is used as an indicator of visual cortical functioning because of the specificity of cortical neurones in showing sensitivity to changes of slant or orientation. DESIGN Results are given for 24 VLBW infants, born at 24-32 weeks gestation weighing… CONTINUE READING
