OBJECTIVES We examined the effects of extremely low birth weight (ELBW<1000 g) on adult brain functioning. METHODS We measured baseline regional EEG spectral power and hemispheric coherence in a cohort of 154 (M age=23 years) non-impaired young adults who were born at ELBW (n=71; M birth weight=874 g, M gestation age=27.5 weeks) and in a control group of full-term adults born at normal birth weight (NBW; n=83). RESULTS ELBW adults exhibited significantly more power in the low EEG frequency… CONTINUE READING
