PURPOSE Grey matter heterotopia are well-defined malformations of the cortex often associated with severe epilepsy. Defects have been identified in genes, including DCX and FLN1, that influence radial migration of postmitotic cells from the ventricular zone to the cortical plate. A proportion of cortical gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA)-containing interneurons may arise from the ganglionic eminence of the ventral telencephalon. We aimed to identify the subtypes and localisation of interneurons… CONTINUE READING
