The opposite of anisotropy is isotropy wherein the same values characterize the object when measured along axes in all directions.Nerve Fibers, Myelinated: A class of nerve fibers as defined by their structure, specifically the nerve sheath arrangement. The AXONS of the myelinated nerve fibers are completely encased in a MYELIN SHEATH. They are fibers of relatively large and varied diameters.

(From Joynt, Clinical Neurology, 1992, Ch55, pp35-6)Lissencephaly: A "smooth brain" malformation of the CEREBRAL CORTEX resulting from abnormal location of developing neurons during corticogenesis. It is characterized by an absence of normal convoluted indentations on the surface of the brain (agyria), or fewer and shallower indentations (pachygryia). There is a reduced number of cortical layers, typically 4 instead of 6, resulting in a thickened cortex, and reduced cerebral white matter that is a reversal of the normal ratio of cerebral white matter to cortex.Organ Size: The measurement of an organ in volume, mass, or heaviness.Neuroimaging: Non-invasive methods of visualizing the CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM, especially the brain, by various imaging modalities.Infant, Newborn: An infant during the first month after birth.Fetal Diseases: Pathophysiological conditions of the FETUS in the UTERUS.

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.Hyperglycinemia, Nonketotic: An autosomal recessive metabolic disorder caused by deficiencies in the mitochondrial GLYCINE cleavage system.Neuroglia: The non-neuronal cells of the nervous system. They not only provide physical support, but also respond to injury, regulate the ionic and chemical composition of the extracellular milieu, participate in the BLOOD-BRAIN BARRIER and BLOOD-RETINAL BARRIER, form the myelin insulation of nervous pathways, guide neuronal migration during development, and exchange metabolites with neurons. Neuroglia have high-affinity transmitter uptake systems, voltage-dependent and transmitter-gated ion channels, and can release transmitters, but their role in signaling (as in many other functions) is unclear.Neuropsychological Tests: Tests designed to assess neurological function associated with certain behaviors. They are used in diagnosing brain dysfunction or damage and central nervous system disorders or injury.Penis: The external reproductive organ of males. It is composed of a mass of erectile tissue enclosed in three cylindrical fibrous compartments.

Callosal and cortical contribution to procedural learning. (1/203)

Acallosal and callosotomized subjects usually show impairments on tasks requiring bilateral interdependent motor control. However, few studies have assessed the ability of these subjects to learn a skill that requires the simultaneous contribution of each hemisphere in its acquisition. The present study examined whether acallosal and callosotomized subjects could learn a visuomotor skill that involved a motor control from either both or a single hemisphere. Eleven adult patients, six acallosal and five callosotomized, participated in this study. Seven of these patients had epileptic foci located in the frontal and/or temporal areas and one of the acallosal patients showed bilateral prefrontal atrophy following surgical removal of an orbitofrontal cyst. The performance of the experimental subjects was compared with that of 11 matched control subjects, on a modified version of a serial reaction time task developed by Nissen and Bullemer (Cogn Psychol 1987; 19: 1-32). This skill acquisition task involved bimanual or unimanual key-pressing responses to a sequence of 10 visual stimuli that was repeated 160 times. A declarative memory task was then performed to assess explicit knowledge of the sequence. None of the experimental subjects learned the task in the bimanual condition. Patients with frontal epileptic foci or orbitofrontal damage also failed to learn the task in the unimanual condition when they were using the hand contralateral to the damaged hemisphere. All other subjects, including the acallosal and callosotomized patients with temporal foci, learned the visuomotor skill as well as their controls in the unimanual condition. In spite of the absence of transfer and interhemispheric integration of procedural learning, some of the acallosal and callosotomized patients were able to learn the sequence explicitly. These findings indicate that the corpus callosum and the frontal cortical areas are important for procedural learning of a visuomotor skill. They also confirm the dissociation described by Squire (Science 1986; 232: 1612-9 and J Cogn Neurosci 1992; 4: 232-43) between the declarative and procedural memory systems and extend this dissociation to processes involving simultaneous bihemispheric co-operation.  (+info)

Abnormalities in neuronal process extension, hippocampal development, and the ventricular system of L1 knockout mice. (2/203)

In humans, mutations in the L1 cell adhesion molecule are associated with a neurological syndrome termed CRASH, which includes corpus callosum agenesis, mental retardation, adducted thumbs, spasticity, and hydrocephalus. A mouse model with a null mutation in the L1 gene (Cohen et al., 1997) was analyzed for brain abnormalities by Nissl and Golgi staining and immunocytochemistry. In the motor, somatosensory, and visual cortex, many pyramidal neurons in layer V exhibited undulating apical dendrites that did not reach layer I. The hippocampus of L1 mutant mice was smaller than normal, with fewer pyramidal and granule cells. The corpus callosum of L1-minus mice was reduced in size because of the failure of many callosal axons to cross the midline. Enlarged ventricles and septal abnormalities were also features of the mutant mouse brain. Immunoperoxidase staining showed that L1 was abundant in developing neurons at embryonic day 18 (E18) in wild-type cerebral cortex, hippocampus, and corpus callosum and then declined to low levels with maturation. In the E18 cortex, L1 colocalized with microtubule-associated protein 2, a marker of dendrites and somata. These new findings suggest new roles for L1 in the mechanism of cortical dendrite differentiation, as well as in guidance of callosal axons and regulation of hippocampal development. The phenotype of the L1 mutant mouse indicates that it is a potentially valuable model for the human CRASH syndrome.  (+info)

Reduction cranioplasty for macrocephaly. Two case reports. (3/203)

Multi-stage reduction cranioplasty was performed on two children with severe macrocephaly secondary to hydrocephalus. One patient underwent a four-stage operation, and the other underwent a two-stage operation. The postoperative course of both patients was uneventful. Reduction cranioplasty improved quality of life for both patients, and good cosmetic results were achieved. Reduction cranioplasty is effective for the treatment of macrocephaly, and multi-stage surgery can reduce the associated risks.  (+info)

Dissociation of the pathways mediating ipsilateral and contralateral motor-evoked potentials in human hand and arm muscles. (4/203)

1. Growing evidence points toward involvement of the human motor cortex in the control of the ipsilateral hand. We used focal transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) to examine the pathways of these ipsilateral motor effects. 2. Ipsilateral motor-evoked potentials (MEPs) were obtained in hand and arm muscles of all 10 healthy adult subjects tested. They occurred in the finger and wrist extensors and the biceps, but no response or inhibitory responses were observed in the opponens pollicis, finger and wrist flexors and the triceps. 3. The production of ipsilateral MEPs required contraction of the target muscle. The threshold TMS intensity for ipsilateral MEPs was on average 1.8 times higher, and the onset was 5.7 ms later (in the wrist extensor muscles) compared with size-matched contralateral MEPs. 4. The corticofugal pathways of ipsilateral and contralateral MEPs could be dissociated through differences in cortical map location and preferred stimulating current direction. 5. Both ipsi- and contralateral MEPs in the wrist extensors increased with lateral head rotation toward, and decreased with head rotation away from, the side of the TMS, suggesting a privileged input of the asymmetrical tonic neck reflex to the pathway of the ipsilateral MEP. 6. Large ipsilateral MEPs were obtained in a patient with complete agenesis of the corpus callosum. 7. The dissociation of the pathways for ipsilateral and contralateral MEPs indicates that corticofugal motor fibres other than the fast-conducting crossed corticomotoneuronal system can be activated by TMS. Our data suggest an ipsilateral oligosynaptic pathway, such as a corticoreticulospinal or a corticopropriospinal projection as the route for the ipsilateral MEP. Other pathways, such as branching of corticomotoneuronal axons, a transcallosal projection or a slow-conducting monosynaptic ipsilateral pathway are very unlikely or can be excluded.  (+info)

The homeodomain protein vax1 is required for axon guidance and major tract formation in the developing forebrain. (5/203)

The homeodomain protein Vax1 is expressed in a highly circumscribed set of cells at the ventral anterior midline of the embryonic CNS. These cells populate the choroid fissure of the optic disk, the body of the optic stalk and nerve, the optic chiasm and ventral diencephalon, and the anterior midline zones that abut developing commissural tracts. We have generated mutant mice that lack Vax1. In these mice (1) the optic disks fail to close, leading to coloboma and loss of the eye-nerve boundary; (2) optic nerve glia fail to associate with and appear to repulse ingrowing retinal axons, resulting in a fascicle of axons that are completely segregated from optic nerve astrocytes; (3) retinal axons fail to penetrate the brain in significant numbers and fail to form an optic chiasm; and (4) axons in multiple commissural tracts of the anterior CNS, including the corpus callosum and the hippocampal and anterior commissures, fail to cross the midline. These axon guidance defects do not result from the death of normally Vax1(+) midline cells but, instead, correlate with markedly diminished expression of attractive guidance cues in these cells. Vax1 therefore regulates the guidance properties of a set of anterior midline cells that orchestrate axon trajectories in the developing mammalian forebrain.  (+info)

Neuropathological abnormalities of the corpus callosum in schizophrenia: a diffusion tensor imaging study. (6/203)

OBJECTIVES: Diffusion tensor imaging (DTI), a technique capable of examining water diffusion in different tissues and the organisation of white matter tracts, was used to investigate the neuropathology of the corpus callosum in vivo in patients with schizophrenia. METHODS: Diffusion tensor imaging was performed in 20 schizophrenic patients and 25 healthy controls. Two complementary measures, mean diffusivity and fractional anisotropy, which are considered to be sensitive indices of axonal integrity, were obtained from regions of interest in the genu (anterior) and splenium (posterior) of the corpus callosum. RESULTS: Mean diffusivity was significantly increased and fractional anisotropy significantly reduced in the splenium but not the genu of the corpus callosum in the schizophrenic group compared with controls. There were no significant sex differences in the DTI measures for either the schizophrenic or control group. Clinical variables such as age, duration of illness, dose of antipsychotic medication, and schizophrenic symptoms did not predict the DTI changes in the schizophrenic patients. CONCLUSIONS: The presence of DTI changes in the splenium but not the genu of the corpus callosum suggests that there may be a focal disruption of commisural connectivity in schizophrenia. However, these findings do not exclude the possibility of abnormalities in other areas of the corpus callosum or other regions of white matter and further research using different methods of analysis may enable us to clarify this. Diffusion tensor imaging is a valuable tool in investigating the structure of white matter in schizophrenia.  (+info)

Parallel visuomotor processing in the split brain: cortico-subcortical interactions. (7/203)

We tested nine patients with callosal pathology in a simple reaction time task with and without redundant targets in the same or opposite visual hemifield. Four patients showed large facilitation (redundancy gain) in the presence of a redundant target, exceeding probability summation models (neural summation). Five patients showed redundancy gain not exceeding probability models. Violation of probability models was not associated with a specific type of callosal lesion. Neural summation, which probably occurs at collicular level, may be modulated by cortical activity. To test this hypothesis, we used functional MRI. During detection of redundant simultaneous targets, activations in the extrastriate cortex were observed in a patient with callosal agenesis and redundancy gain violating probability models, but not in a patient with callosal agenesis and redundancy gain not exceeding probability models. We conclude that cortical activity in the extrastriate cortex may be a modulating factor in the magnitude of the redundancy gain during parallel visuomotor transforms.  (+info)

Agenesis of corpus callosum - a rare case. (8/203)

A case of corpus callosum agenesis associated with a chromosomal structural defect is described.  (+info)

The agenesis of the corpus callosum and lipoma is a very rare association. We report the case of an 18-years old young patient with no history who was admitted to the emergency department for generalized seizures and atypical headache, the onset of symptoms dated back to two months, neurological examination was normal. The brain computed tomography scan and the magnetic resonance showed the lipoma and the partial agenesis of the corpus callosum.
The corpus callosum is absent.. Axial images: The bodies of lateral venticles have a parallel orientation. Fibers of white matter located in the medial side of bodies of lateral ventricles are called "Probst bundle". These are considered as the fibers that meant to make corpus callosum. The posterior parts of lateral ventricles are enlarged; this is called "colpocephaly". Coronal images: "Steer horn", and "Viking helmet" signs are made by the frontal horns of the lateral ventricles in the coronal plane.. Sagittal image: Brain sulci have a "sun ray" appearance in the midsagittal plane. ...
Longitudinal callosal fascicles (or Probst bundles) are abnormal collections of brain cells characteristic of patients with agenesis of the corpus callosum. Failure of the callosally-projecting neurons (mostly layer 2/3 pyramidal neurons) to extend axons across the midline and therefore form the corpus callosum[clarification needed] results in anomalous collection of these axonal projections in both hemispheres. Longitudinal callosal fascicles were originally described by Moriz Probst in 1901 by gross anatomical observation. More recently, these anomalies are detected by Magnetic Resonance Imaging or Diffusion Tensor Imaging. Probst, M.

Our study reports five patients with GATA4 mutations and a variable phenotype of transient or permanent diabetes diagnosed in neonates or during childhood. The exocrine pancreatic phenotype ranged from complete agenesis to hypoplasia with subclinical exocrine insufficiency or normal exocrine function. Additional features included neurocognitive defects and congenital heart malformations. The variable phenotype was not correlated with the size of the deletion, consistent with the variable penetrance of GATA4 mutations/deletions reported in the literature. Both patients with pancreatic agenesis (this study and DAmato et al. [11]) had missense mutations rather than deletions, but the absence of diabetes in two heterozygous relatives suggests that a dominant-negative effect is unlikely (11). Our results indicate that GATA4 mutations/deletions are a rare cause of NDM, accounting for 0.5% of our international series (4/867 cases).

Implausible as it may sound, its not fully crazy to believe that the Trump administration has actually prioritized toxic cleanups. Kate Probst, an independent consultant and one of Superfunds longest-standing outside observers, said the program is likely the most palatable of all environmental options for this administration. "Superfund is not a regulatory program. It is the only non-regulatory program at EPA-its a cleanup," she said. And if all politics is local, Superfund plays there too. "Whether you are a Republican or a Democrat, if you live near a site, or youre a member of Congress with a site in your district, you want that site cleaned up," she added, noting that cleanups bring cash infusions into regions in the form of contract work for construction and remediation. Superfund, Probst said, "is not the same as anything else at EPA.". "The success during the Trump administration thus far," Gibbs organization, the Center for Health, Environment and Justice, wrote in a recent report, ...

Definition of Corpus callosum agenesis in the Legal Dictionary - by Free online English dictionary and encyclopedia. What is Corpus callosum agenesis? Meaning of Corpus callosum agenesis as a legal term. What does Corpus callosum agenesis mean in law?
Agenesis of the corpus callosum can occur isolated or as part of a complex congenital syndrome. Patients with isolated agenesis of the corpus callosum may present with severe intellectual disability, although a proportion of affected individuals develop normal intelligence. However, even in patients with no apparent deficits, subtle neuropsychological alterations may occur as the cognitive demand increases with age. Hence, patients with this deffect require a strict follow-up during their postnatal life. Thus, physicians require a better knowledge of the cognitive features of agenesis of the corpus callosum to improve their approach to this cerebral malformation. Here, we report an illustrative case of a school-age child with isolated agenesis of the corpus callosum and normal intelligence. We also provide a literature review about the postnatal screening of neurocognitive deficits in patients with agenesis of the corpus callosum.

Autosomal recessive hereditary spastic paraplegia (ARHSP) with thin corpus callosum (TCC) is genetically heterogenous and approximately 35% of patients carry mutations in either of the SPG11 or SPG15 genes. Disease onset is during the first three decades of life with spastic paraplegia and mental impairment. Peripheral neuropathy and amyotrophy may occur. Kjellin syndrome is characterized by central retinal degeneration in addition to ARHSP-TCC and the disease is associated with mutations in the SPG15 gene. We identified five patients in four unrelated kindreds with spastic paraplegia and mental impairment. Magnetic resonance imaging revealed TCC, atrophy elsewhere in the brain and increased T2 signal intensity in the periventricular white matter. Probands from the four kindreds were screened for mutations in the SPG11 gene. All patients were found homozygous or compound heterozygous for truncating SPG11 mutations of which four are reported for the first time. Ophthalmological investigations ...

Aging Age-related decline in the commissural fiber tracts that make up the corpus callosum indicate the corpus callosum is involved in memory and executive function. Specifically, the posterior fibers of the corpus callosum are associated with episodic memory. Perceptual processing decline is also related to diminished integrity of occipital fibers of the corpus callosum. Evidence suggests that the genu of the corpus callosum does not contribute significantly to any one cognitive domain in the elderly. As fiber tract connectivity in the corpus callosum declines due to aging, compensatory mechanisms are found in other areas of the corpus callosum and frontal lobe. These compensatory mechanisms, increasing connectivity in other parts of the brain, may explain why elderly individuals still display executive function as a decline of connectivity is seen in regions of the corpus callosum.[7] Older adults compared to younger adults show poorer performance in balance exercises and tests. A decline in ...
This condition occurs when the callosal fibers may have started to grow, but are unable to cross between the hemispheres. The fibers grow toward the back of the same hemisphere where they began. These fibers form what are called Bundles of Probst. Some smaller connections between the hemispheres develop in most individuals with ACC. These are the anterior commissure, posterior commissure, and hippocampal commissure. However, each of these is at least 40,000 times smaller than the corpus callosum. Thus, they cannot compensate completely for the absence of the corpus callosum. ...
left hemispheres of the brain together. Disorders of the corpus callosum, or DCCs, are "conditions in which the corpus callosum does not develop in a typical manner." This important brain superhighway is usually formed by 12 to 16 weeks after conception. However, there are some people born without a corpus callosum at all, this is otherwise known as agenesis of the corpus callosum. My 4 year old son has hypoplasia of the corpus callosum, which means that his corpus callosum is thin and therefore may be less efficient. A few other included disorders are partial agenesis, as in partially absent, and dysgenesis, or malformation, of the corpus callosum.. DCCs, like Autism, are a spectrum disorder, where there is no textbook answer to how happy or healthy someone will be just based off of diagnosis. Many parents are finding out during pregnancy due to the advancement in technology and equipment. Unfortunately, they are not always getting the best advice or support, due to the lack of knowledge on ...

Aim: To evaluate the positive predictive value of the midsagittal view of the fetal brain in recognizing the cause of ventriculomegaly diagnosed with traditional axial scan.. Methods: Fifty-eight pregnant women, referred to our Center following a generic diagnosis of ventriculomegaly have been evaluated: 38 had marked and 20 had borderline ventriculomegaly. The fetal brain was scanned by the midsagittal view using a transabdominal probe in fetuses in breech presentation or transverse lie and a transvaginal probe in fetuses in cephalic presentation. The possible cause of ventriculomegaly was postulated by combining the findings of the corpus callosum/cavum septi pellucidi complex with those of the posterior fossa. The prenatal diagnoses were compared with the anatomical specimens of aborted fetuses or with postnatal neuroimaging.. Results: The prenatal diagnoses were confirmed in 54/58 cases (PPV 93.1%). In the marked ventriculomegaly group, one case of partial agenesis of the corpus callosum was ...
I am a speech-language pathologist working with a first-grader with partial agenesis of the corpus callosum. He speaks in complete sentences and produces most sounds correctly. However, I have just begun working on his prosody. In our first session addressing voicing issues, he was unable to imitate/approximate exaggerated high and low pitch. His mother reports that he does not hum or sing tunes but he does make voices when playing independently with action figures. I have searched our ASHA professional website but did not find any therapy techniques or suggestions. Do you have any resources that might help me?. Response by JoAnne Tully CCC-SLP (2009). I dont know of any articles or discussions that have directly talked about prosody in children with DCC. I do know, however, that a lot of children with DCC have some degree of apraxia, and prosody disorders often accompany apraxia. The Apraxia-Kids website has a good article by Shelley Velleman about prosody. The link to that article is ...

In addition, this study examined the corpus callosum of healthy older adults who have subjective cognitive complaints (CC) but perform within normal limits on neuropsychological tests. We used a semi-automated procedure to examine the total and regional areas of the corpus callosum in 22 patients with early AD, 28 patients with amnestic MCI, 28 healthy older adults with cognitive complaints, and 50 demographically matched healthy controls (HC). The AD, MCI, ...
Agenesis of the corpus callosum is the most frequent brain malformation. This anomaly may be diagnosed by ultrasound screening. In half of these prenatal cases, the anomaly seems to be isolated. In this setting, there are no prospective data concerning the development of these children, preventing any clear information to be delivered to parents. Prenatal diagnostic centers therefore face extremely variable rates of termination of pregnancies (TOP), which can reach up to 80%.. This is a multicentric prospective interventional study whose primary objective is to assess the neurological development at three years of age of children born after prenatal diagnosis of isolated agenesis of the corpus callosum.. Evaluation at three years will include Intellectual Quotient (IQ) quantification using the WPPSI-III, 3rd edition of Wechsler Preschool and Primary Scale of Intelligence and evaluation of intra-hemispheric coordination using the Vineland adaptative behaviour scale.. Secondary objectives will ...

If the upper part of either hemisphere be removed, at a level about 1.25 cm. above the corpus callosum, the central white matter will be exposed as an oval-shaped area, the centrum ovale minus, surrounded by a narrow convoluted margin of gray substance, and studded with numerous minute red dots (puncta vasculosa), produced by the escape of blood from divided bloodvessels.. If the remaining portions of the hemispheres be slightly drawn apart a broad band of white substance, the corpus callosum, will be observed, connecting them at the bottom of the longitudinal fissure; the margins of the hemispheres which overlap the corpus callosum are called the labia cerebri.. Each labium is part of the cingulate gyrus already described; and the slit-like interval between it and the upper surface of the corpus callosum is termed the callosal sulcus.. If the hemispheres be sliced off to a level with the upper surface of the corpus callosum, the white substance of that structure will be seen connecting the two ...
Hereditary motor and sensory neuropathy with agenesis of the corpus callosum (HMSN/ACC or ACCPN), also known as Andermann Syndrome, a neurodevelopmental and neurodegenerative disorder, is characterized by severe progressive sensorimotor neuropathy with resulting hypotonia, areflexia, and amyotrophy and variable degrees of dysgenesis of the corpus callosum.NIH ACCPN is inherited as an autosomal recessive, through mutations in the SLC12A6 gene. Several SLC12A6 mutations leading to ACCPN have been identified, including: ...
OFD1, now recognized as a ciliopathy, is characterized by malformations of the face, oral cavity and digits, and is transmitted as an X-linked condition with lethality in males. Mutations in OFD1 also cause X-linked Joubert syndrome (JBTS10) and Simpson-Golabi-Behmel syndrome type 2 (SGBS2). We have studied 55 sporadic and six familial cases of suspected OFD1. Comprehensive mutation analysis in OFD1 revealed mutations in 37 female patients from 30 families; 22 mutations have not been previously described including two heterozygous deletions spanning OFD1 and neighbouring genes. Analysis of clinical findings in patients with mutations revealed that oral features are the most reliable diagnostic criteria. A first, detailed evaluation of brain MRIs from seven patients with cognitive defects illustrated extensive variability with the complete brain phenotype consisting of complete agenesis of the corpus callosum, large single or multiple interhemispheric cysts, striking cortical infolding of gyri, ...
MRI pituitary showed partial agenesis of the corpus callosum with absence of splenium and posterior body. The pituitary gland is of normal size. An incidental CT abdomen and pelvis done 3 weeks later for symptoms suggestive of bowel obstruction revealed no pathology in the adrenals.. This may be a case of idiopathic adrenocorticotropin deficiency. Patients were typically over 40 years, hypogonadism may be present and there is absence of structural pituitary defects except for an empty sella1. It can also be associated with a transient growth hormone deficiency6. The partial agenesis of the corpus callosum is likely to be an incidental finding.. Some studies have shown increased biochemical adrenal insufficiency and prevalence of adrenal antibodies in patients with type 1 diabetes2,3whereas others did not show significant increase in prevalence compared with control subjects4,5. Testing for anti-adrenal antibodies would be necessary to completely rule out coexisting primary adrenal ...

Horizontal and vertical line bisection was studied in 129 children and adolescents between 8 and 19 years of age, one group (n=32) of typically developing controls and one group (n=97) with spina bifida (SBM), a neurodevelopmental disorder associated with dysmorphology of the corpus callosum, posterior cortex, and midbrain. For each participant, structural brain MRIs were analyzed qualitatively to identify beaking of the midbrain tectum and corpus callosum agenesis and hypoplasia and quantitatively by segmentation and volumetric analyses of regional cortical white and gray matter. Each group showed the line length effect, whereby greater estimation errors are made with longer lines. The group with SBM differed from controls in terms of both accuracy and variability of line bisection. Children with SBM showed pseudoneglect, attending more than controls to left hemispace. The extent of rightward bisection bias was unrelated to right posterior brain volumes, although an intact corpus callosum ...
The importance of the corpus callosum for binocular interaction in areas 17 and 18 of the adult cat is still a matter of controversy, since its specific role in integrating information from the two eyes has been suggested by some and questioned by others. We have reanalyzed the problem by assessing binocular interaction for single neurons in areas 17 and 18 of adult cats submitted to section of the posterior two-thirds of the corpus callosum. In 5 cats this interhemispheric disconnection was performed from 10 days to 7 weeks before the electrophysiological recordings; in another cat callosal afferents to the recording sites were at first partially eliminated by an acute lesion of corresponding cortical zones in the other hemisphere, and thereafter completely interrupted by a posterior callosal section performed in the same recording session. Recordings were mainly aimed at the callosal zone of areas 17 and 18, which coincides with the border between these two areas and corresponds to visual ...

The corpus callosum is a thick band of nerve fibers that is located at the center of the brain underneath the cerebrum and divides the brain into left and right hemispheres. It allows both sides of the brain to communicate by transferring sensory, cognitive, and motor information between the two hemispheres. The corpus callosum is also involved with eye movement and maintaining the balance of attention and arousal. It changes structurally throughout ones life especially during childhood and adolescence. ...

FOXG1 Syndrome. FOXG1 Syndrome is a rare neuro-developmental condition associated with mutations in the forkhead box G1 (FOXG1) gene. A de novo pathogenic variant in FOXG1 was first discovered via fluorescence in situ hybridization and southern blot hybridization in a girl with severe cognitive disability associated with complete agenesis of the corpus callosum and microcephaly in 2005. The FOXG1 gene provides instructions for making a protein known as forkhead box G1. This protein is a transcription factor, which means it helps regulate the activity of other genes. This protein plays an important role in brain development, particularly in a region of the embryonic brain known as the telencephalon. The telencephalon ultimately develops into several critical structures, including the the largest part of the brain (the cerebrum), which controls most voluntary activity, language, sensory perception, learning, and memory.. Typical Symptoms. There is a wide variation in both the symptoms and severity ...

One final note: formation of the corpus callosum is a dramatic example of a process that is susceptible to developmental variation. What I mean is this: when patients inherit a mutation that results in callosal agenesis, this phenotype occurs in some patients but not all. This is true even in genetically identical people, like monozygotic twins or triplets (or in lines of genetically identical mice). Though the corpus callosum contains millions of nerve fibres, the initial events that establish it involve very small numbers of cells. These cells, which are located at the medial edge of each cerebral hemisphere, must contact each other to enable the fusion of the two hemispheres, forming a tiny bridge through which the first callosal fibres can cross. Once these are across, the rest seem able to follow easily. Because this event involves very few cells at a specific time in development, it is susceptible to random "noise" - fluctuations in the precise amounts of various proteins in the cells, for ...
