BACKGROUND Given thyroid hormone (TH)'s essential role in multiple aspects of early brain development, children with congenital hypothyroidism (CH) detected and treated early may still display subtle cognitive and behavioral impairments as well as brain abnormalities. However, effects on their cortical development are not yet known. We used an automated(More)
In rodents, insufficient thyroid hormone (TH) gestationally has adverse effects on cerebral cortex development. Comparable studies of humans examining how TH insufficiency affects cortical morphology are limited to children with congenital hypothyroidism or offspring of hypothyroxinemic women; effects on cortex of children born to women with clinically(More)
Neurons in the hypothalamus function to regulate the state of the animal during both learned and innate behaviors, and alterations in hypothalamic development may contribute to pathological conditions such as anxiety, depression or obesity. Despite many studies of hypothalamic development and function, the link between embryonic development and innate(More)
