Neuroimpairments, activity limitations, and participation restrictions in children with cerebral palsy.
Motor function and learning disability were important predictors for participation restrictions in children with CP and has the capacity to be a model to help plan interventions for specific functional goals and to ascertain the child's participation in society. Expand
Changing panorama of cerebral palsy in Sweden. VIII. Prevalence and origin in the birth year period 1991–94
This 8th Swedish population‐based cerebral palsy (CP) report comprises 241 children born 1991–94 and Probable aetiology was identified in 73% of preterm and 86% of term children. Expand
The changing panorama of cerebral palsy in Sweden. IX. Prevalence and origin in the birth‐year period 1995–1998
For the first time, hemiplegia was now most common, due to the decline in preterm diplegia, and there was a further increase in full‐term dyskinetic cerebral palsy. Expand
The changing panorama of cerebral palsy in Sweden. X. Prevalence and origin in the birth‐year period 1999–2002
The aim of the study was to describe the prevalence and origin of cerebral palsy, which is the tenth report from the western Swedish study. Expand
The changing panorama of cerebral palsy in Sweden. VII. Prevalence and origin in the birth year period 1987‐90
The entire series of 1408 cases born in 1954–90 revealed three distinct trend eras for preterms, clearly related to changes in perinatal care and shifts in type of CP manifestations. Expand

CP aetiology may predict the development and outcome of epilepsy, as children with CP caused by CNS malformation, CNS infection, and grey matter damage all showed a higher frequency of epilepsy than children withCP of other aETiology, and also had less chance of becoming seizure-free. Expand
Epilepsy in a representative series of Rett syndrome
In a representative series of 53 females with Rett syndrome (RS), aged 5–55 y, a history of epilepsy was present in 50 (94%), 45 of whom had 5‐y active epilepsy, and frequent seizures were associated with smaller head circumference. Expand
Antenatal risk factors for cerebral palsy.
Evidence suggests that 70-80% of CP cases are due to prenatal factors and that birth asphyxia plays a relatively minor role (<10%).Some antenatal risk factors are repeatedly observed to be related to CP: low gestational age, male gender, multiple gestation, intrauterine viral infections and maternal thyroid abnormalities.

Aetiology in severe and mild mental retardation: a population‐based study of Norwegian children
Despite extensive investigations, 4% of SMR and 32% of MMR were not identified with any biological markers and were considered as unspecified MR, several most probably representing the lower end of the normal IQ distribution in the population. Expand
The changing panorama of cerebral palsy in Sweden. VI. Prevalence and origin during the birth year period 1983–1986
The prevalence and origin of cerebral palsy in children born between 1983 and 1986 are reported and the particular critical period for the brain damage underlying cerebral palsY was considered to be weeks 26–34 of gestation, i.e. when periventricular structures are extraordinarily vulnerable. Expand
