Brief description Approximately 50% of children born very preterm will develop significant problems. The objective of this project is to determine the mechanisms leading to these problems. We will do this by assessing at school-age a unique and valuable cohort of very preterm infants (VIBeS cohort) who had state-of-the-art brain scans shortly after birth and neurobehaviour assessments across early childhood. This school-age follow-up will involve repeat brain scans and detailed neuropsychological assessments.
