Pregnancies resulting in infants with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome or AIDS-related complex

, : Pregnancies resulting in infants with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome or AIDS-related complex. Obstetrics and Gynecology 69(3 Pt 1): 285-287

Thirty-four children have been cared for at SUNY-Health Science Center at Brooklyn with diagnoses of either acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) or AIDS-related complex. Reported here are descriptions of pregnancies resulting in these children. Few of the mothers (four of 32) were symptomatic; however, low birth weight (11 of 34), preterm birth (11 of 34), and premature rupture of membranes (ten of 32) were common. Of 33 patients whose mode of delivery was known, cesarean section was used in ten cases, including one elective repeat. Among mothers who had children before their affected offspring, the average birth weight of the older children significantly exceeded that of the affected (3241 +/- 508 versus 2712 +/- 722 g, P less than .05). The affected child's age at onset of symptoms did not correlate with birth weight, mode of delivery, or status of membranes at the onset of labor.

It has been proposed that the brain predicts the sensory consequences of a movement and compares it to the actual sensory feedback. When the two differ, an error signal is formed, driving adaptation. How does an error in one trial alter performanc...
