Emerging Roles of miRNAs in Brain Development and Perinatal Brain Injury.

Front Physiol 2019 28;10:227. Epub 2019 Mar 28.

Department of Physiology, Faculty of Medical Health and Sciences, University of Auckland, Auckland, New Zealand.

In human beings the immature brain is highly plastic and depending on the stage of gestation is particularly vulnerable to a range of insults that if sufficiently severe, can result in long-term motor, cognitive and behavioral impairment. With improved neonatal care, the incidence of major motor deficits such as cerebral palsy has declined with prematurity. Unfortunately, however, milder forms of injury characterized by diffuse non-cystic white matter lesions within the periventricular region and surrounding white matter, involving loss of oligodendrocyte progenitors and subsequent axonal hypomyelination as the brain matures have not.

Spastic cerebral palsy (CP), despite the name, is not consistently identifiable by specific brain lesions. CP animal models focus on risk factors for development of CP, yet few reproduce the diagnostic symptoms. Animal models of CP must advance beyond risk factors to etiologies, including both the brain and spinal cord. Read More

Front Physiol 2019 22;10:283. Epub 2019 Mar 22.

The Ritchie Centre, Hudson Institute of Medical Research, Clayton, VIC, Australia.

Hypoxic ischemic (HI) insult in term babies at labor or birth can cause long-term neurodevelopmental disorders, including cerebral palsy (CP). The current standard treatment for term infants with hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy (HIE) is hypothermia. Because hypothermia is only partially effective, novel therapies are required to improve outcomes further. Read More

The Validity and Reliability of a Kinect v2-Based Gait Analysis System for Children with Cerebral Palsy.

Sensors (Basel) 2019 Apr 7;19(7). Epub 2019 Apr 7.

Department of Exercise Sciences, Faculty of Science, University of Auckland, Auckland 1023, New Zealand.

The aim of this study is to evaluate if Kinect is a valid and reliable clinical gait analysis tool for children with cerebral palsy (CP), and whether linear regression and long short-term memory (LSTM) recurrent neural network methods can improve its performance. A gait analysis was conducted on ten children with CP, on two occasions. Lower limb joint kinematics computed from the Kinect and a traditional marker-based Motion Analysis system were investigated by calculating the root mean square errors (RMSE), the coefficients of multiple correlation (CMC), and the intra-class correlation coefficients (ICC).
