Relative maturation of peripheral and central regions of the neonatal brainstem was studied using brainstem auditory evoked responses in 174 healthy preterm infants (gestational age 30–36 wk). From 30- to 42-wk postconceptional age (PCA), I–III and III–V intervals shortened with increasing age. It was difficult to detect any apparent differences in maturational rate between the two intervals. However, III–V/I–III interval ratio decreased with increasing age, indicating that from preterm to term… CONTINUE READING
