The scholarly study was led by psychology researcher Professor Dieter Wolke.

Known as the Bavarian Longitudinal Study data obtained on cognitive function had been assessed with developmental and cleverness checks at five and 20 months and at four, six, eight and 26 years. Two-hundred-and-sixty infants born either extremely premature or with very low birth weight were compared with 229 babies who born full-term. Their results were not sex-specific, related to income or education, and were compared to the control group of adults who had been born healthy in the same obstetric wards. Professor Wolke added: Some children born extremely premature or with very low birth weight rating low on cognitive exams but beat the chances and improve into adulthood .O'Shaughnessy, MD, MBChB, Stanford University Donald E.
