Cerebral palsy is the commonest form of motor disability in developed countries. Its prevalence has remained essentially unchanged, affecting two per 1000 live births, despite the advances in obstetric and neonatal care over the last three decades. This article reviews preterm and term infants most at risk of developing cerebral palsy and examines recent developments in the understanding of corticospinal tract development and plasticity.
