Abstract: Extreme prematurity has been one of the success stories of medicine over the past 25 years, understanding the altered physiology and pathology that attends birth at extremely low gestations has led to immense strides in survival. The neuropsychiatric consequences of this are now becoming apparent and there is an explosion of work understanding the core deficits that produce these outcomes is now a priority if we are to identify potential therapeutic strategies.

The first of the two EPICure studies has been following individuals born in 1995 before 26 weeks of gestation. This was a group who have demonstrated significant psychometric and psychiatric morbidity. The research team have just completed an evaluation of a sample at 19 years of age to introduce recent studies that have started to define the adult outcomes for this group.
