Thesis: Early motor repertoire and long-term neurological outcome

Promotor(s): prof. A.F. Bos

Faculty: Medical Sciences


During the last decades, neonatal survival rates have increased, while the prevalence of minor neurological dysfunction (MND) has increased. It is important to identify the infant at risk for abnormal neurological development at an early stage. In this thesis is showed that the quality and the quantity of the concurrent motor repertoire had independent prognostic value for MND at school age.
