Muscle pattern training compensates [this relates to the ADHD-like symptoms in preterm]
YES! Motor skills FULLY MEDIATED the association between preterm birth and P300 but not cardiovascular training. That is: LEARN MUSCLE SKILLS (like playing the piano, drawing, sports). (Now what about P300 _initiation_ > response?)
“Very preterm birth was associated with impaired response inhibition.”
• Impaired behavioral performance was linked with decreased P300, but not N200.
• Motor skills fully mediated the association of preterm birth and P300.
• Cardiorespiratory fitness did not contribute to this mediation.
• Improving motor skills might promise the reduction of cognitive control deficits.
N200-P300 complex. Doesn’t differentiate between subtypes (ADHD vs inattentive ADHD _however_ as this isn’t about “which ADHD is more similar to very preterm/vlbw symptoms? (ADHD-I) but about preterm. The “Go” of P300 internally generated intent has issues too in preterm > adhd or adhd-i – I’ll see who else does. But this study right here is big; it confirms motor compensation for inhibition issues]
