Description

A fundamental issue in research on infant cognition concerns the consequences of infant
abilities for mature intellect. One goal of this proposal is to examine the possibility that core
cognitive abilities from infancy, namely, memory,speed of processing, attention, and representation
competence persist, and provide the foundation for later intelligence and achievement. A second
goal is to examine the extent to which children born at risk (preterms) show deficits in these core
cognitive abilities, not only in infancy, but childhood, and the import of early deficits for later
outcome. Preterm deficits in childhood will also be examinedfor three overlapping but distinct
aspects of executive function, a cognitive domain not studied in infancy.
To address these issues we will follow-up, at ages 11 and 13 years, a large cohort (N = 203)
of full-terms and preterms (
