Music-supported rehabilitation in children with cerebral palsy

Children with cerebral palsy (including stroke pathology) will engage in a home-based intervention that involves interactive computer play and music-supported rehabilitation. Brain images will be obtained prior to and at the end of the intervention. We will examine changes in brain function and structure that arise from the intervention, and determine whether they correlate with improvements in children’s ability to move their arms and hands.
