Neurocognitive outcomes in children with unilateral basal ganglia arterial ischemic stroke and secondary hemidystonia

Learning Objectives:
1. Describe the neurocognitive outcomes associated with pediatric basal ganglia stroke and the additional cognitive burden of hemidystonia in this population.
2. Explain the concept of plasticity in the context of neurodevelopment, and how plasticity can be both adaptive and maladaptive after early brain injury.
