Summary:
Medical technology has improved the survival rates of premature infants, but adverse developmental outcomes are a continuing problem. Researchers have turned their attention to the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU), where premature infants spend their first few weeks or months, for potential answers. In a new study, researchers studied the relationship between different room types in the NICU and the developmental outcomes of the children at 2 years of age.
