The cortical neuronal organization of the brain was studied and compared in three conditions. The neurons in the polymicrogyric cortex from a subject with Fukuyama-type congenital muscular dystrophy and from a child with ocular dysplasia (Walker-type lissencephaly) were large, irregularly aligned, and not completely mature. In the former condition, the abnormal neuronal arrangement was predominantly in the superficial cortex; in the latter both the superficial and deep cortex were involved… CONTINUE READING
