Extensive structural and functional changes in periventricular nodular heterotopia

Takeaway

  • Areas of abnormal function in people with periventricular nodular heterotopia (PVNH) were localized via increased cortical thickness over the nodules, which correlated with functional irregularities.

Why this matters

    Knowing the anatomical differences as well as the structural and functional changes in a person with PVNH can help to diagnose and identify the most effective treatments.
