Thousands of babies are born each year in the U.S. with brain defects that can cause lifelong disability or even death. Brain injuries can happen during delivery, while the brain is still developing in the womb or as a result of pre-maturity. UC-San Francisco neurologists and pediatricians are developing better diagnostic tools and treatments to help brain-damaged babies not only survive, but grow up to live more normal lives.
