The human midline is particularly vulnerable to dysmorphogenesis. This property can be derived theoretically from models of developmental fields that rely on positional information for the control of the process of determination. The topological properties of the midline as an early plane of symmetry imply positional informational weaknesses that should… CONTINUE READING
