Maturation of the visual cortex in relation to dietary intake of polyenoic fatty acids in preterm infants

Bambini e Nutrizione 2(3): 116-120

Maturation of the visual cortex in relation to dietary intake of polyenoic fatty acids in preterm infants

Flash-evoked visual potential (VEP), flash electroretinograms (ERG) and auditory potential of the encephalic trunk evoked by low frequency stimuli (BAEP) were studied at 52 weeks old in 58 preterm infants (gestational age less than 33 weeks and birthweight appropriate for gestational age) fed from 10 days old on human milk (HM), preterm formula enriched with long-chain polyenoic fatty acids (PF-LCP) or a traditional preterm formula (FP).
