Steve Miller: protecting premature babies' brains

From Sunday Morning, 8:40 am on 11 November 2018

Professor Steven Miller is an expert on brain development in premature babies. Through MRI scans he has studied premature children's neurological issues. He’s in New Zealand collaborating with Distinguished Professor Jane Harding at the Liggins Institute to find out how nutrition can affect these vulnerable babies’ neurological development and long-term prognosis. He’s also giving a public lecture on 13 November. He explains the progress being made in ensuring premature babies have the best chance of normal brain development and function as they grow up.
