Introduction
I am currently a doctoral student. I work with research involving the neuropsychology of cerebral palsy, covering everything from evaluation to treatment.

Background There is a need to investigate relevant, acceptable and feasible approaches that promote participation in leisure-time physical activity for children with cerebral palsy (CP). The aim of this study is to assess the feasibility of a randomised controlled trial comparing a peer-group intervention focused on improving physical literacy (Spo...

Introdução: A terapia de movimento induzido por contensão (TMIC) é a abordagem de tratamento mais utilizada na reabilitação do membro superior de crianças com Paralisia Cerebral Unilateral (PCU) e Paralisia Braquial Perinatal (PBP). Protocolos adaptados da TMIC (Baby-TMIC) têm sido utilizados em crianças menores que três anos, porém seus benefícios...

Background Disorders in different levels of body representation (i.e., body schema, body structural description, and body image) are present in hemiplegic cerebral palsy (HCP). However, it remains unclear whether the body image develops from aspects of body schema and body structural description, and how this occurs in children with HCP. Objective...
Article
Purpose To analyze the effectiveness of sports-focused interventions on the participation of children and adolescents with cerebral palsy (CP). Methods Study searches were conducted on EMBASE, PubMed, Scielo, PEDro, CINAHL, SPORTDiscuss in June 2022. We included randomized controlled trials that investigated the effectiveness of sports-focused int...
Article
Aim: To systematically review the effectiveness of physical therapy interventions in infants, children and adolescents with brachial plexus birth injury (BPBI). Methods: Systematic review of randomized controlled trials including patients under 18 years old with BPBI was conducted on Medline, Cochrane, Embase, Amed and Pedro databases. Methodolo...

Unilateral cerebral palsy (UCP) usually results in damage to the unilateral pyramidal system. However, the clinical presentation of neuromotor deficits also suggests lesions to the extrapyramidal and cerebellar systems bilaterally. In this study, we developed and tested a behavioral neuromotor examination protocol assessing impairments at three lev...

Introdução: Crianças com paralisia cerebral hemiplégica (PCH) exibem dificuldades funcionais na utilização do membro superior hemiparético, repercutindo negativamente no desempenho em realizar atividades de vida diária. Atualmente, os déficits motores nessa população são acompanhados por distúrbios sensoriais, dificuldades na aprendizagem, alteraçõ...

Aim To evaluate whether children with cerebral palsy (CP) are able to engage in a motor imagery task. Possible associations between motor imagery and functional performance, working memory, age, and intelligence were also investigated. Method This is a case–control study that assessed 57 children (25 females, 32 males) with unilateral CP, aged 6 t...
Article
Full-text available
Although motor imagery has been pointed as a promising strategy for the rehabilitation of children with neurological disorders, information on their development throughout childhood and adolescence is still scarce. For instance, it is still unclear at what age they reach a development comparable to the motor imagery performance observed in adults....

A paralisia cerebral (PC) é uma das causas mais comuns de incapacidade motora na infância. Resulta de uma perturbação não progressiva no cérebro imaturo. A diplégica espástica (DE) é a forma mais comum de PC e cursa com deficiência nos membros inferiores e no padrão de marcha. Tal limitação tem impacto negativo no desempenho da criança para realiza...
Article
Introduction: Evidence indicates that motor deficits in hemiplegic cerebral palsy (HCP) impair both motor execution and planning. However, current rehabilitation efforts focus mainly on relieving impairments in motor execution. Motor imagery (MI) is a promising method for stimulating neural networks underlying the planning and control of movements...
Article
Full-text available
Clinical observations indicate that many children with hemiplegic cerebral palsy refrain from using or disregard the affected upper limb. The aim of the present study is to investigate deficits in different body representations (body schema, body structural description, and body image) in children with hemiplegic cerebral palsy (HCP) compared to ty...
