The authors of the above mentioned article1 would like to correct Table 1, and citations to Table 1 and Table 2 on pp1428. The correct Table 1 should read:

Table 1.  Cognitive functions tested with Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children (WISC III) at 15 years of age in very low birthweight (VLBW) boys and VLBW girls and their controls.
 VLBW n = 59Controls n = 57pBoys VLBW n = 31Girls VLBW n = 28p
Verbal IQ, mean; SD86.0; 16.596.5; 13.6<0.00185.5; 17.186.5; 16.00.808

The correct citations to Table 1 and Table 2 on pp 1428 should read:

Under Cognitive functions section, it should read: The VLBW group had significantly lower values in WISC III on all scales compared with the control group (Table 1), with a mean difference of 12 in full scale IQ.

Under Behaviour section, it should read: Results from YSR are shown in Table 2.
