Are atypical knee jerk responses prognostic for cerebral palsy in high-risk infants and children?

      Early diagnosis of Cerebral palsy is based on medical history and neurological examination and is ideally complemented by standardized motor assessments and neuroimaging. The value of using the above as predictive tools for cerebral palsy in some high-risk populations, such as premature infants, has been demonstrated [
