Visual recognition memory in IUGR and normal birth-weight infants

Academic Article


  • Recognition memory as measured by visual novelty preference was studied in 20 7-month-old term intrauterine growth retarded (IUGR) infants and 20 matched normal birth-weight infants. Preference for novelty was significantly lower for the IUGR group, p<.0017, and there was a significant correlation between birth weight and novelty preference, r.55, p<.0002. The results indicate that IUGR infants can now be added to the list of biologically at-risk groups that can be expected to differ from normal infants on measures of recognition memory during infancy. © 1988.
