Mar 1, 2015

Baby in NICUTeaching Research Institute, in partnership with the Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU), has begun recruiting for a study on Executive Function in infants and toddlers born Low Birth Weight (LBW). Recruitment has begun for babies born low birth weight and those born full term. Here's the recruitment information.

"It is so exciting to have cutting-edge research happening at TRI," says Dr. Ella Taylor, Director of TRI. "Since it was founded, more than 50 years ago, TRI has conducted research studies that have dramatically changed the face of education in America." For example, Dr. Edward Palmer's research on what holds the attention of pre-school children to television, that took place at TRI back in the 1960s and 70s, became the foundation for the Children's Television Workshop that created Sesame Street. “This new study on Executive Function in babies born Low Birth Weight has the potential to transform the field as Dr. Palmer's research did in education,” Dr. Taylor stated.
