Abstract

Date Presented 4/8/2016

Neuroimaging of specific white matter (WM) tracts can predict early motor skills in a cohort of preterm infants. Several WM tracts indicate that connectivity of the frontal cortex, the occipital visual cortex, the temporal lobe, and thalamus are important to early motor skill development.
