Visual and oculomotor disorders

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Consensus has been reached on the concept that infantile cerebral palsy (CP) is a complex disorder which is limited neither to motor disability nor to the simple association between motor disability and possible disorders of other functions. Conversely, as extensively shown in this book, CP is currently considered as the result of the interaction between the different residual motor, sensorial, perceptive, or cognitive abilities or functions and their adaptative transformation grounded on evolution, that is to say a continuously evolving disability of an individual who is continuously evolving. The issue of visual-perceptive development (and of its disorders) in CP must be viewed within this frame-work, also considering the central role it plays in the child's neuromotor, cognitive, and affective development, becoming the first tool for the interaction with the surrounding world.
