Human Brain Malformations Workshop


Brain malformations, especially those affecting the cerebral cortex, are common causes of intellectual disability and epilepsy. Recent advances in genetics, imaging, and cell biology have substantially increased our knowledge of the mechanisms underlying cortical development and how it can go awry.

In this Neurobiology of Disease Workshop conducted at Neuroscience 2015, leading experts review some of the genes, cellular pathways, processes, and structures commonly affected in brain malformations including PI3K/mTOR signaling, tubulin, reelin, and cilia.
