Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

7 Scopus citations


Fetal nutrition as assessed by skin-fold thickness was correlated with nerve conduction in 27 babies of 39 to 41 weeks’ gestation. There was correlation between skin-fold thickness and conduction velocity, suggesting that fetal nutrition may alter peripheral nerve function by influencing myelination.
