Welcome to the
brain characteristics study
Recently, there has been a dramatic increase in the number of infants diagnosed with abnormal head shape, called Deformational Plagiocephaly.
Infants with abnormal head shape often receive corrective treatment with a helmet.
This study is being done to learn more about brain functioning in infants with abnormal head shape before and after they receive helmet therapy. It will help investigators to find out if brain development is influenced by the shape of the head, and if changes in brain structure and characteristics could occur with helmet therapy.
