Unravelling upper limb function and treatment response in unilateral cerebral palsy: a behavioral and neurological perspective KU Leuven
The exploration of the environment mainly occurs through interaction with our hands: we touch, manipulate, and inspect objects to learn how to use them. In this process, both sensory and motor systems are coordinated to provide integrated information which contribute to an optimal learning and is crucial during the first period after birth. A disruption in the brain regions responsible for these interactions might have devastating ...

Neurological factors challenging bimanual motor control and treatment response in children with unilateral cerebral palsy. KU Leuven
Children with unilateral Cerebral Palsy (uCP) present with many sensorimotor deficits in their impaired arm, compromising effective use in daily life activities. Accurate motor control between both arms is vital in performing bimanual tasks. This proposal is triggered by the need to provide well-targeted treatment plans optimizing bimanual motor control, as such improving the child’s participation in daily life. Yet, bimanual motor control is ...
