Regional cerebellar growth is altered in pre-term infants in the absence of cerebellar injury

Takeaway

  • Pre-term infants without cerebellar injury demonstrate cerebellar growth alterations compared to gestational age-matched healthy infants.

Why this matters

    Results of this study improve the understanding of cerebellar development in the third trimester and better inform further studies aiming to improve long-term neurodevelopmental outcome of premature infants.
