Neonatal white matter microstructure and emotional development during the pre-school years in children who were born very preterm.

Dana Kanel, Lucy Vanes, Diliana Pecheva, Laila Hadaya, Shona Falconer, Serena Counsell, David Edwards, Chiara Nosarti,

Children born very preterm (<33 weeks of gestation) are at a higher risk of developing socio-emotional difficulties compared to those born at term. In this longitudinal study, we tested the hypothesis that diffusion characteristics of white matter tracts implicated in socio-emotional processing assessed in the neonatal period are associated with ...
