  • Quantitative studies of brain morphology in a group of subjects with Williams syndrome revealed a distinctive pattern of dysmorphology unlike that observed in another form of mental retardation. Down syndrome. Reduced cerebral size but normal cerebellar size was observed in Williams syndrome, in contrast to reductions in both brain components in Down syndrome. Examination of cerebellar vermal morphology suggested significantly increased area of neocerebellar vermal lobules in Williams syndrome… CONTINUE READING
