As a secondary objective identify which are the most affected areas of the neurodevelopment: cognition, socio-­‐emotional, motor or language skills.Design: A 5 years long clinical trial administering, with double-­‐blind and a randomized distribution of the sample, Phenobarbital or Levetiracetam for the management of neonatal seizures
