Discovery Shows Cerebellum Plays Important Role In Sensing Limb Position And Movement

September 4, 2013
Kennedy Krieger Institute researchers find that damage to the cerebellum impairs ability to predict motion outcomes and discrimination between limb positions.

Baltimore, Md. -- Researchers at the Kennedy Krieger Institute announced today study findings showing, for the first time, the link between the brain’s cerebellum and proprioception, or the body’s ability to sense movement and joint and limb position.

The Cooling Cure

August 2, 2013
A collaboration between doctors and engineers leads to an innovative, low-cost medical device that may help prevent cerebral palsy in developing countries.

As far back as 1000 BC, ancient civilizations used a primitive, but ingenious, cooling system using nothing more than clay pots, water, and the natural cooling power of evaporation to keep food cool. Could this same low-tech cooling system be used to prevent brain damage and cerebral palsy in developing countries? A team from Kennedy Krieger and Johns Hopkins recently developed an inexpensive medical device meant to do exactly that.

Revisiting the Diagnosis of CP through the Lens of Genetics 

Cerebral Palsy and Other Movement Disorders Research

Cerebral palsy (CP) describes a group of congenital neurological disorders affecting tone and posture and impairing movement. It results from genetic or acquired disorders which disrupt developing networks of brain cells (neurons) and connecting "cables" (white matter) that control movement. Impairment in motor function, with limitations in mobility and hand use, is the primary manifestation.
