Neurophysiologic and neuroimaging studies of brain plasticity in children with spastic cerebral palsy.

, , , and . Exp Neurol 198 (1): 4--11 (March 2006)


Patients with cerebral palsy (CP) may have some problems other than this motor impairment: mental retardation, epilepsy and sensory disturbance. Healthy children and children with CP have an enhanced capacity for learning and memory compared to adults. There are few tools for brain plasticity investigations. The utility of the neurophysiologic and MRI techniques in the determination of brain reorganization and repair in patients with cerebral palsy is described. The authors discuss their results of quantitative EEG and spectroscopy MRI studies in children with CP. Quantitative EEG and spectroscopy MRI can be useful tools in the determination of these processes in children with CP.
