      Magnetic resonance diffusion tractography of the preterm infant brain: a systematic review (pages 113–124)

      Kerstin Pannek, Simon M Scheck, Paul B Colditz, Roslyn N Boyd and Stephen E Rose

      Version of Record online: 16 SEP 2013 | DOI: 10.1111/dmcn.12250

      What this paper adds

      • There is clear evidence of an effect of PMA on diffusion metrics.
      • The effects of gestational age and white matter injury on diffusion are inconclusive.
      • The suitability of tractography as a predictive tool needs to be investigated further.
      • A need for robust acquisition and analysis was identified.

      Guidelines for future research in constraint-induced movement therapy for children with unilateral cerebral palsy: an expert consensus (pages 125–137)

      Ann Christin Eliasson, Lena Krumlinde-Sundholm, Andrew M Gordon, Hilde Feys, Katrijn Klingels, Pauline B M Aarts, Eugene Rameckers, Ilona Autti-Rämö and Brian Hoare

      Version of Record online: 7 OCT 2013 | DOI: 10.1111/dmcn.12273

      What this paper adds

      • The CIMT construct remains complex and much is still unknown.
      • Consensus agreement identified 11 questions to be explored in future studies.
      • Future research should focus primarily on the effect of dosage, the effect of repeated treatment, and predictive factors such as age.

      Effectiveness of hand splints in children with cerebral palsy: a systematic review with meta-analysis (pages 138–147)

      Michelle Jackman, Iona Novak and Natasha Lannin

      Version of Record online: 15 JUL 2013 | DOI: 10.1111/dmcn.12205

      What this paper adds

      • Non-functional hand splints may provide a small augmenting effect to therapy in children with CP.
      • Benefits of non-functional splints are not maintained after splint wearing stops.
      • Insufficient evidence exists on whether functional hand splints provide benefits.

      A cohort study on full breastfeeding and child neuropsychological development: the role of maternal social, psychological, and nutritional factors (pages 148–156)

      Jordi Julvez, Monica Guxens, Anne-Elie Carsin, Joan Forns, Michelle Mendez, Michelle C Turner and Jordi Sunyer

      Version of Record online: 1 OCT 2013 | DOI: 10.1111/dmcn.12282

      What this paper adds

      • Very long-term full breastfeeding was independently associated with neuropsychological functions of children at 4 years of age.
      • Maternal indicators of intelligence, psychopathology, and colostrum n3 fatty acids did not explain this association.

      Tourette syndrome and chronic tic disorder are associated with lower socio-economic status: findings from the Avon Longitudinal Study of Parents and Children cohort (pages 157–163)

      Laura L Miller, Jeremiah M Scharf, Carol A Mathews and Yoav Ben-Shlomo

      Version of Record online: 18 OCT 2013 | DOI: 10.1111/dmcn.12318

      What this paper adds

      • Lower SES is associated with a twofold greater risk of Tourette syndrome/chronic tics.
      • This association was examined using a large prospective birth cohort (ALSPAC) and a multidimensional composite measure.
      • Single or area-based measures may be inadequate.
      • Genetic factors or social patterning of an adverse environmental aetiological factor may explain this observation.

      Ophthalmic abnormalities in children with developmental coordination disorder (pages 164–170)

      Alexandra L Creavin, Raghu Lingam, Kate Northstone and Cathy Williams

      Version of Record online: 5 OCT 2013 | DOI: 10.1111/dmcn.12284

      What this paper adds

      • Clinically relevant, sometimes treatable, ophthalmic problems are associated with DCD.
      • Severe DCD is associated with a greater than twofold increased risk of hypermetropia and anisometropia and with abnormal motor and sensory fusion.
      • Around a quarter of children with severe DCD have poor stereoacuity.
      • An association between DCD and strabismus cannot be ruled out.

      The accommodative process in children with cerebral palsy: different strategies to obtain clear vision at short distance (pages 171–177)

      Tony Pansell, Kerstin Hellgren, Lena Jacobson, Rune Brautaset and Kristina Tedroff

      Version of Record online: 3 SEP 2013 | DOI: 10.1111/dmcn.12266

      What this paper adds

      • Children with CP exhibit problems in all aspects of the accommodative process: timing, amplitude, and stability.
      • The greatest problems seem to be present in the group with dyskinetic CP.
      • Pupillary constriction did not mirror the accommodative response and is thus unsuitable as a measure of accommodative function.

      An Australian population study of factors associated with MRI patterns in cerebral palsy (pages 178–184)

      Susan M Reid, Charuta D Dagia, Michael R Ditchfield, John B Carlin, Elaine M Meehan and Dinah S Reddihough

      Version of Record online: 8 NOV 2013 | DOI: 10.1111/dmcn.12331

      What this paper adds

      • The study involved the largest Australian population cohort of children with CP and classified neuroimaging.
      • Parity, plurality, birth gestation, place and condition at birth have differentially stronger associations with specific MRI patterns.
      • Nulliparity was strongly associated with focal vascular insults; multiparity was associated only with malformations.
      • Grey matter injury was strongly associated with severe perinatal compromise.
      • Children with malformations were least likely to have had neonatal seizures and require neonatal care.

      The stability of the Manual Ability Classification System over time (pages 185–189)

      Ann-Marie Öhrvall, Lena Krumlinde-Sundholm and Ann-Christin Eliasson

      Version of Record online: 25 NOV 2013 | DOI: 10.1111/dmcn.12348

      What this paper adds

      • Children's MACS levels tend to remain stable over time.
      • The stability of the MACS is not influenced by age.
      • The MACS may be used for predictive purposes.

      N-methyl-D-aspartate receptor antibody-associated movement disorder without encephalopathy (pages 190–193)

      Yael Hacohen, Nomazulu Dlamini, Tammy Hedderly, Elaine Hughes, Martin Woods, Angela Vincent and Ming Lim

      Version of Record online: 16 OCT 2013 | DOI: 10.1111/dmcn.12321

      What this paper adds

      • NMDAR-Ab should be tested in patients with a movement disorder even without an encephalopathy.
      • In patients presenting predominantly with a movement disorder, the other associated features should be checked.
