Would you like a picture of your child’s brain? We are studying brain imaging and motor function in 6 to 18 year old children who were born prematurely and have spastic diplegic cerebral palsy. Children must be able to walk by themselves with or without a walker, cane or crutches. They must be able to understand and follow  simple directions and be able to lie still for up to ten minutes at a time. For a copy of the information flyer, please click here.

 The Center for Cerebral Palsy participates in research that meets our mission to understand the causes of movement disorders and assess the effectiveness of treatments in cerebral palsy. The Center currently has the following research opportunities:

Transforming Women’s Healthcare – In collaboration with the Cerebral Palsy Foundation (CPF), the Center is participating in a multi-site project to address the challenges that women with cerebral palsy face in obtaining quality women’s health care.  The result of this work is that UCLA’s OB/GYN Clinics are accessible and the staff are trained in the care and treatment of women with CP. To make an appointment in the UCLA OB/GYN clinic, please call (310) 825-5961 or click here for more information.

If you are interested in participating in any of these programs, or would like more information, please contact the Center for CP at (310) 825-5858 or email Marcia Greenberg at
