We evaluated this by comparing the frequency of potentially harmful prenatal events and of genetic factors in a series of 40 patients (38 with epilepsy) with neuronal migration disorders (NMD) and in 40 epileptic controls, using a predetermined standardized questionnaire to minimize interviewer… CONTINUE READING
