    Abstract

    Clinical and epidemiological studies have revealed that cerebral palsy (CP) most often results from prenatal rather than perinatal or postnatal causes. Currently, although the momentous advances in prenatal and perinatal care, there is no mean to identify or expect the development of these disorders. Therefore, the development of diagnostic strategies to avoid and condense the saddle of perinatal brain damage has to turn into one of the most imperative tasks of contemporary perinatal medicine. The application of the new neurobehavioral test KANET might improve our understanding of prenatal neurodevelopmental events and possibly antenatal detection of CP and other neurological diseases.
