Abstract

Very preterm birth is associated with neurodevelopmental impairments and outcomes have not improved over the last decades. Insight in learning processes is important for the development of effective interventions. Implicit learning is of particular interest because of its independence from working memory processes that are affected by preterm birth. This study examined implicit learning abilities in 49 very preterm and 61 full-term 13-year-old adolescents. The degree of implicit learning was not different between groups. This indicates intact implicit learning abilities in adolescents born very preterm. Implicit learning strategies may be beneficial for skill learning in very preterm born children.
