Neuronal Migration Disorders Summary

Description: Disorders resulting from defects in migration of neuronal cells during neurogenesis. Developing nerve cells either fail to migrate or they migrate to incorrect positions resulting in formation of heterotopias, lissencephaly, or other malformations and dysfunctions of the nervous system.

Also Known As: Disorder, Neuronal Migration; Disorders, Neuronal Migration; Migration Disorder, Neuronal; Migration Disorders, Neuronal; Neuronal Migration Disorder
