Musical and vocal interventions to improve neurodevelopmental outcomes for preterm infants

We will assess the overall efficacy of auditory stimulation for physiological and neurodevelopmental outcomes in preterm infants (< 37 weeks' gestation), compared to standard care. In addition, we will determine specific effects of various musical and vocal interventions for physiological, anthropometrical, social-emotional, neurodevelopmental short- and long-term outcomes in preterm infants, parental well-being, and bonding.

This is a protocol.
