Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A retrospective study was made of 16 premature infants who were visually inattentive despite normal eye findings and a lack of factors predisposing them to cerebral blindness. A comparison of this study group with other premature infants who were visually attentive revealed a much greater incidence of upper motor neuron disease and mental retardation in the study infants.
