The term "athetoid cerebral palsy" also applies to dyskinetic cerebral palsy. 6% of CP sufferers experience it. Involuntary motions are what this kind is known for. The basal ganglia have been harmed, leading to this.


6% of patients with CP have ataxic cerebral palsy. This kind impacts a person's equilibrium and perception of where they are in space because of their jerky motions. This is the outcome of cerebellar injury.
