UCP Clinical Trial

National Institutes of Health Seeks Participants for Study Investigating Brain Reorganization in Cerebral Palsy

Children and adults with hemiplegic or diplegic types of cerebral palsy between 6 to 30 years of age are invited to participate in a study investigating brain reorganization in cerebral palsy at the National Institutes of Health (NIH), Bethesda, MD (Protocol 04-N-0098). The study involves 3 outpatient visits to NIH. Psychological testing, brain MRI, evaluation of vision and hearing, and a comprehensive evaluation of rehabilitation needs will be provided at no cost to participants. Contact NIH toll free at 1-800-411-1222; TTY: 1-866-411-1010; e-mail:

NIH is part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. This study is carried out in compliance with testing and safety standards of U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

This sounds like a really interesting study. I am interested in hearing the results of it since D has such extensive therapy.
