Caption: Cerebral palsy. Coloured magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan of a coronal (front) section through the head of a 5 year old boy with cerebral palsy. Encephalomalacia (softening of the brain due to degenerative changes in nervous tissue) can be seen in the left side of his brain (cream area at right). This has resulted in hemiparesis, the paralysis of the right side of his body. Cerebral palsy is a developmental abnormality caused by damage to the brain of a baby during late pregnancy, child-birth or early childhood.
