A lot of them will look pretty good when they leave [intensive care] and then, several years later, when they go to school, things pop up - behavioral problems, cognitive problems, learning disabilities,' said UVA's Jennifer Burnsed, MD. 'That's one of the things that's always frustrated me as a clinician, so we have brought that question into the lab, to try to figure out exactly what is going on in the neonatal brain.'
