Cerebral Palsy (CP) is a childhood disorder of the brain that affects muscle tone, movement, and motor skills. It is caused by a non-progressive brain injury or malformation that occurs while the childs brain is under development. A CP affected person might not be able to walk, talk, eat, or move the way most people do. The primary deficits include: muscle tone abnormalities, influenced by position, posture and movement, impairment of balance and coordination, loss of selective motor control. The secondary musculoskeletal problems are muscle contractures and bony deformities.
Scientific journal is a periodical publication intended to further progress of science, usually by reporting novel research. There are thousands of scientific journals in publication, and many more have been published at various points in the past. Most journals are highly specialized, although some of the oldest journals publish articles and scientific papers across a wide range of scientific fields. Scientific journals contain articles that are peer reviewed, to ensure that articles meet the journal's standards of quality, and scientific validity. The publication of the results of research is an essential part of the scientific method. If they are describing experiments or calculations, they must supply enough details that an independent researcher could repeat the experiment or calculation to verify the results. Each such journal article becomes part of the permanent scientific record.
