PDF | The aims of this study were: (1) to perform the Amiel-Tison Neurological Assessment (ATNA) in a group of infants with different risk factors. Amiel-Tison neurologic assessment at term has re- cently been updated for clinical application. Experi- ence in this field, in addition to a better understanding . Amiel-Tison12,13 has developed a clinical instrument for the neurological assessment of preterm infants at term. This instrument considers signs that depend.

The particular susceptibility of preoligodendrocytes to anoxia is consistent with abnormalities of myelination found at various degrees in this populati.

General movements in early infancy predict neuromotor development at 9 to 12 years of age. Moreover, their research on automatic walking 12,60 is still current, as shown by the number of publications concerning this fascinating primary locomotion.

Putative neural substrate of normal and abnormal general movements. Dev Med Child Neurol ;32, Such an assessment is useful for any newborn infant in maternity wards or for any preterm infant approximately 40 weeks of age, with or without abnormal imaging findings.


Aniel assessment of the neonate revisited: The subplate SP is a transient structure which emerges as early as 10 PM weeks, with a maximal volume and activity from 20 to PM weeks being thickest at around 29 PM weekslocated below the future cortical plate, in the space where the white matter will later develop.

Recent studies reviewed by Back15 show: Prolonged coexistence of transient and permanent circuitry elements in the developing cerebral cortex of fetuses and preterm infants. The Fetus in Three Dim. Those two researchers were great clinicians but did not have access to the amazing recent advances in neurosciences. Dev Med Child Neurol ;48, New postural reactions occur, such as the lateral propping reaction to maintain a sitting position and, later, the parachute reaction, ready to attenuate bad falls while learning amiep walk.

At present, fetal neurology is supported by neonatal neurology. Sinceextensive clinicopathological data have been provided to clinicians.


On the other hand, such a distance between the examiner and the infant may represent a significant source of frustration for pediatricians. When every response is optimal score 0the probability of a favorable outcome is high.
