Boardman JP, Fletcher-Watson S. What can eye-tracking tell us? Arch Dis Child. 2017 Jan 10. pii: archdischild-2016-311693. doi: 10.1136/archdischild-2016-311693
Early development of neurocognitivefunctions in infants can be compromised by poverty,malnutrition and lack of adequate stimulation. Optimalmanagement of neurodevelopmental problems in infantsrequires assessment tools that can be used early in life,and are objective and applicable across economic,cultural and educational settings.
