Cortical Development: Genes and Genetic Abnormalities
Chapters in this book deal specifically with cell fate determination, cell migration and disorders of cell migration; current concepts and new ideas about cortical arealisation, and disorders which can arise from incorrect arealisation; genes implicated in the development of cortical connectivity and related pathologies such as schizophrenia and synaesthesia; and susceptibility genes for cognitive disorders such as schizophrenia, autism, dyslexia, and attention deficit disorder.
Editors: Gregory Bock (Organizer) and Jamie Goode.
This symposium is based on a proposal made by Zoltán Molnár.
