This study examines the structural network connectivity determinants of poor developmental outcomes in preterm neonates, and applies a machine learning framework for potential use as a diagnostic test for prediction of poor outcome. Analyses will be performed in a unique cohort of preterm neonates with existing longitudinal MRI studies and behavioral measures.
