Neonatal Neurology

The labyrinth of the central and peripheral nervous system is our nerve complex. It is our regulation and coordination centre. It tremendously gets affected due to various factors like trauma, autoimmune disorders, tumours etcetera. Physicians of this area of expertise are called as neurologists. Cerebral palsy is a long lasting movement disorder that occurs in early childhood. Signs and symptoms are variable. Poor coordination, stiff muscles, and tremors are the most common symptoms. Affected infants cannot roll over, sit, crawl, or walk as early as other children of their age.

Abnormal development or damage to the parts of the brain is the main cause of cerebral palsy. These problems may occur prior, post and during pregnancy. Cause of this has not yet been determined.
