Primary autosomal recessive microcephaly (MCPH1) maps to chromosome 8p22-pter.
Primary (or "true") microcephaly is inherited as an autosomal recessive trait and is thought to be genetically heterogeneous. Using autozygosity mapping, we have identified a genetic locus (MCPH1)Expand

COMPARISON OF TWO METHODS OF PREDICTING OUTCOME IN PERINATAL ASPHYXIA
In a follow-up study of 122 full-term infants in whom postasphyxial encephalopathy occurred the incidence of death or severe handicap was 1 in 1000 deliveries. The abilities of two methods ofExpand

Resistance index, blood flow velocity, and resistance-area product in the cerebral arteries of very low birth weight infants during the first week of life.
Cerebral artery Doppler ultrasound recordings, and intra-arterial pressure measurements have been made from 27 very low birth weight infants during the first week of life. These data were used toExpand
