Less efficient elementary visuomotor processes in 7 to 10 year old preterm born children without Cerebral Palsy: an indication of impaired dorsal stream processes?

Braeckel, Koenraad Van; Butcher, Phillipa; Geuze, Reint H.; Duijn, Marijtje A. J. Van; Bos, Arend F; Bouma, Anke


Follow-up studies of preterm children without serious neurological complications have consistently found deficits in visuomotor skills. To determine whether these deficits may be related to impaired elementary visuomotor processes, we investigated movement programming and execution of simple pointing movements in 7- to 10-year-old preterm (<34 weeks g.a. and/or b.w. <1800 g) and full-term children. Such detailed analysis of simple pointing movements provides information on the extent to which...[Show more]
