Preservation of thalamocortical projections to the sensorimotor cortex is related to improved hand function in children with cerebral palsy (CP). Whether CP is associated with altered microstructure of these sensorimotor projections or other thalamocortical pathways remains unclear. Forty-two children with congenital hemiplegia and fifteen typically… CONTINUE READING
