Brain maturation after preterm birth.
MedLine Citation:
PMID:  23325799     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Two translational studies--one in humans and one in sheep--suggest that (i) premature birth is associated with delayed maturation of grey matter in the cerebral cortex and (ii) medical care that prohibits impairment of growth in premature neonates may enhance cortical development and reduce neurological disabilities associated with preterm birth.
