Gender differences in language and motor-related fibers in a population of healthy preterm neonates at term-equivalent age: a diffusion tensor and probabilistic tractography study.

Abstract

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Sex differences in white matter structure are controversial. In this MR imaging study, we aimed to investigate possible sex differences in language and motor-related tracts in healthy preterm neonates by using DTI and probabilistic tractography. MATERIALS AND METHODS Thirty-eight preterm neonates (19 boys and 19 girls, age-matched… (More)
