Imaging Developmental and Interventional Plasticity Following Perinatal Stroke

Brandon T Craig, Alicia Hilderley, Adam Kirton, Helen L Carlson
2020 Canadian Journal of Neurological Sciences  
Perinatal stroke occurs around the time of birth and leads to lifelong neurological disabilities including hemiparetic cerebral palsy.  ...  Such techniques can also be used to investigate how the brain responds to treatment (interventional neuroplasticity).  ...  This is required to identify individual factors that predict responsiveness to generate personalized neurorehabilitation to optimize function.  ...

The signal functions of early infant crying

Joseph Soltis
2004 Behavioral and Brain Sciences  
Current evidence does not strongly support any one of these hypotheses, but the evidence is most consistent with the hypothesis that excessive early infant crying is a signal of vigor that evolved to reduce  ...  Although there is not strong evidence for acoustically distinct cry types, infant cries may function as a graded signal.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENTS We are indebted to Sandra Elincx for coming up with the idea of scanning subjects while they listened to infant cries.  ...
