The ontogeny of sensory perception in preterm infants

European Journal of Pediatrics
F J SchulteH G Lenard


The extra- vs intrauterine development of both visual and auditory cortical evoked response patterns was compared at 33, 37 and 40 weeks conceptional age. The maturation of visual cortical evoked responses is retarded in infants at 37 and 40 weeks conceptional age when born with a gestational age of less than 32 weeks, which thus implies a long extrauterine life span. The maturation of the auditory cortical evoked responses is not influenced by premature exposure to the extrauterine environment. The results are explained on the basis of the particular central nervous system growth spurt periods and a thus defined vulnerable period of different brain structures.

Auditory Perception

Auditory perception is the ability to receive and interpret information attained by the ears. Here is the latest research on factors and underlying mechanisms that influence auditory perception.
