Dopamine and Motor Learning in Cerebral Palsy

Objective The broad objective of this study is to determine the relationship between variations in genes related to dopamine (DA) neurotransmission in areas of the brain associated with motor leaning (e.g. DRD1, DRD2, DRD3, COMT, DAT) and/or to activity-dependent brain plasticity (e.g. BDNF) and differences in motor learning rates and ...

Phase N/A

Early Identification of Infants at Risk of Cerebral Palsy

Scientific literature review shows evidence that early intervention, especially when performed in the first months of life, when the brain plasticity shows its great expressivity, has positive effects on neurodevelopmental outcomes. In this framework the early identification of infants at risk for neurodevelopmental disorders is a major prerequisite to start ...

Phase N/A

Outcome After Selective Dorsal Rhizothomy Concerning Life Quality Cerebral Imaging and Cognition

SDR at the Charit University clinics. Two study visits before surgery and during the follow-up 3 months, 6 months, 12 months, 24 months and 5 years post-operatively.

Phase N/A

Genetic Study of Familial and Sporadic ALS/Motor Neuron Disease Miyoshi Myopathy and Other Neuromuscular Disorders

Participants will be asked to provide a blood sample ( or sometimes saliva or skin sample) and to complete a couple of questionnaires regarding their overall medical health and some environmental risk factors. Medical records will be requested for all those diagnosed with one of the study diseases to allow ...

Phase N/A

Outcomes of the Evans Calcaneal Lengthening Based on Bone Grafting Material

Primary Outcome Measures: Measurement on radiographs of distance between heme clips located in calcaneous bone of the foot. Within the patient's own calcaneous bone, a heme clip will be placed on each side of the osteotomy. From radiographs, the amount of collapse will be determined by measuring the distance from ...

Phase N/A

Near-infrared Spectroscopy and Electroencephalography to Assess Cortical Activation During Motor Tasks in Infants and Toddlers With and Without Cerebral Palsy

OBJECTIVE Portable neural imaging during functional tasks is now possible utilizing noninvasive near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) which identifies areas of brain activity by measuring blood flow dynamics and electroencephalography (EEG) which measures electrical activity on the cortical surface. Use of these technologies for studying movement is rapidly increasing; however, investigations in ...

Phase N/A

Transcultural Validation of Activities Scale for Kids (ASK)

The purpose of the study isto test the psychometric properties of the Italian version of the ASKp assessment scale, in a representative sample of individuals with PCI. ASK p will be administered on a sample of individuals belonging to the population of children and / or adolescents with diplegia and ...

Phase N/A

Quantifying Patient-Specific Changes in Neuromuscular Control in Cerebral Palsy

The long-term goals of this research are to quantify patient-specific changes in neuromuscular control in order to optimize treatment planning and improve mobility for individuals with cerebral palsy (CP). As a first step, the aims of this proposal are to evaluate neuromuscular control before and after one of the most ...

Phase N/A

A Pilot Study of Hand Function in Children With Cerebral Palsy Undergoing Intensive Neurophysiological Rehabilitation

Intensive Neurophysiological Rehabilitation System is a novel multimodal rehabilitation approach that combines different treatment modalities. The treatment course lasts for 2 weeks with daily therapy up to 4 hours. Main treatment programs include biomechanical correction of the spine, extremity joint mobilization, physical and occupational therapy, reflexotherapy, special massage system, rhythmical ...

Phase N/A

Participation to Life of Children With Cerebral Palsy

Cerebral Palsy (CP) defined as a group of permanent impairments that is originating from non-progressive disorders that develop in the immature brain. CP leads activity limitations of movement and posture development.The first 20 years of life is characterized by rapid growth and specific changes in physical, social, and psychological development. ...
