Psychological and Social Aspects of Cerebral Palsy

The aim of the project is to deal with two challenges in current research on cerebral palsy (CP): 1) that the research is primarily focused on the neurophysiological and motoric aspects of CP and 2) that the communication and implementation of the research to a large extent is limited to the research community. The project will engage with these challenges by opening up the research in CP and a) focus on the psycho-social aspects of CP through an embodied cognitive framework, and b) work with an open science approach to embodied cognition. An open approach means working with different media for scientific communication than publications and with a wide range of collaborative partners outside of academia in order to achieve larger societal impact.
