Memory and Processing Speed in Preterm Children at Eleven Years: A Comparison with Full-Terms.
Rose, Susan A.; Feldman, Judith F.
Child Development, v67 n5 p2005-21 Oct 1996
Examined the effects of premature birth on ninety 11-year-olds' memory and processing speed, using the new Cognitive Abilities Test (CAT). Found that preterm subjects performed more poorly than their full-term counterparts on all CAT memory tasks, and that preterms were also slower on selected aspects of processing speed but not on motor speed.
