Abstract

By stimulating the medial aspect of the superior surface of the cerebellum with relatively short, low current stimulating pulses, spasticity and some involuntary movements have been reduced. Voluntary movements, as a result, are able to come through better; however, if the child has little voluntary ability, he is at least more relaxed, thus allowing the parents to care for him more easily. The children and adults with cerebral palsy have not been transformed from their previous status, although chronic cerebellar stimulation has allowed them to become more independent, more ambulatory, and more communicative.
