Abstract

In this preliminary study, it was examined whether capacity to react to external stress (acute pain) during neonatal intensive care predicts later neuromotor development at 4 and 8 months corrected chronological age (CCA) in high-risk preterm infants. Behavioural and cardiac reactivity to blood collection at 32 weeks postconceptional age (PCA) were recorded in addition to developmental outcomes at 4 and 8 months CCA in 35 preterm infants (17 males, 18 females) born
