My interest in pediatric clinical research started with studies of neurological functions of newborn babies

Since the end of the nineteen eighties I participated and periodically was the leader of regional follow-up studies of children born with a birth weight of less than 1500 g.

Besides neurological development and education, our group studied reading abilities with different tests and neuroimaging (fMRI) during the children´s first years at school.

Individuals with very low birth weight born 1987-88 have been studied from the newborn period during childhood and adolescence and now as adults at the age of 27-28 years regarding health, education, family building, sex hormones and stress hormones.
