In a landmark research study on eighty-two children with spastic cerebral palsy (CP) on one side of the body, researchers at Burke Neurological Institute, Teacher’s College-Columbia University, and Weill Cornell Medicine learned that two intensive training therapies improved hand and arm function, allowing children to learn new, long-term life skills regardless of how the injured brain had re-wired itself.

According to a recent clinical randomized trial conducted by the Burke Neurological Institute, Teachers College of Columbia University, the Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais, Queens College City University of New York, and the Université Catholique de Louvain, improvements in upper extremity function following intensive training are independent of corticospinal tract organization in children with unilateral spastic cerebral palsy.
