The finding suggests that physicians and educators should be particularly vigilant in tracking the progress of preterm boys and to intervene quickly if they need extra help academically.

Now, neonatologist Anna Penn, MD, and her colleagues have discovered that newborn male mice exposed to abnormally low levels of oxygen lost greater brain volume than did newborn fema
