Conséquences cognitives de la prématurité à l'âge scolaire : étude comparative des fonctions inhibitrices chez des enfants nés à terme et prématurés

Abstract : Research on the longer term outcomes for preterm infants has progressively come to defend the hypothesis of a dysfunction of inhibition. However, the unity or diversity of inhibitory functions is a debatable point. Three case-control studies are reported here. One primary goal of these studies was to specify the longer term outcomes for preterm children. One second main goal was to examine the organization and roles of the three inhibitory functions (Hasher & al., 1999). Birth status is correlated with cognitive performance in the K-ABC. Preterm and very preterm children score significantly lower than full term children on many tests sensitive to inhibitory processes. The results from the confirmatory factor analysis indicate that the three target functions are distinguishable, but not completely independent. Preterm children have difficulties with the updating of working memory contents, at school age. The three inhibitory functions seem to be disrupted with very preterm children.
