Study: Gentle touch may improve brain responses for preemies

NANN SmartBrief | Mar 23, 2017

Infants born preterm had reduced brain response to gentle touch than those born full-term, and those who underwent more painful medical procedures had the least likelihood of brain response, according to a study in Current Biology. However, the findings, based on data involving 125 babies, showed increased brain responses among those born preterm who had more gentle contact with parents and clinicians in the NICU.
