The VAURAS project aims to understand the developmental effects of early-stage brain damage in babies.

The project recruits both preterm and full-term babies who have been diagnosed with brain damage shortly after birth. Early-stage development of the baby brain is studied by measuring brainwave activity in addition to brain imaging. 

The baby’s neurological and neurocognitive development are studied and observed using various methods. 

Majority of these tests and measurements occur within the first few months after the baby’s birth. Additionally, the child’s development is followed by the project up until the age of two years.
