According to researchers, even before a preterm infant is born, they may have alterations in the brain's neural networks that could contribute to neurodevelopmental disorders.
Researchers report cooling babies suffering from perinatal asphyxia can significantly improved chances of survival without brain damage later in childhood.
A new study reveals caffeine therapy appears to have benefits for healthy brain development in children born prematurely. Researchers report preterm babies given caffeine therapy had better cognitive scores, reduced odds of cerebral palsy and less hearing impairments as toddlers.
University of Adelaide researchers have identified a genetic link between autism and cerebral palsy. The study reports disruptions in signalling pathways in children with cerebral palsy overlap disruptions identified in autism.
A collaborative effort aims to provide a new method of communication for people with cerebral palsy.
The development of fine motor skill could take longer than previously thought, according to a new study.
A team of scientists from Johns Hopkins and elsewhere have developed nano-devices that successfully cross the brain-blood barrier and deliver a...
According to researchers, often unreported abnormality of the brain's gray matter can indicate future impairment in children born prematurely.
Understanding how babies learn to walk may help to improve rehabilitation treatments for those with cerebral palsy and spinal cord injuries.
Scientists report researchers are now on the threshold of human application of stem cell therapies for a class of neurological diseases known as myelin disorders – a long list of diseases that include conditions such as multiple sclerosis, white matter stroke, cerebral palsy, certain dementias, and rare but fatal childhood disorders called pediatric leukodystrophies.
Researchers have identified a molecule in white matter that prevents the brain from repairing itself following injury. By blocking the production of the molecule, researchers say it may allow an effective pathway for neuroregeneration.
