Tactile Sensory Capacity of the Preterm Infant: Manual Perception of Shape From 28 Gestational Weeks

Published inPediatrics, vol. 130, no. 1, p. e88-e94
Publication date2012
Abstract

Recent studies have shown that from the postconceptional age of 33 weeks, preterm infants are able to memorize tactile information about the shape of an object by using their hands, and can detect differences with another shape. This study aimed to investigate tactile abilities earlier on in development, in very preterm and mildly preterm human infants.
