Normal brain development throughout childhood and adolescence is usually characterized by decreased cortical thickness in the frontal regions as well as region-specific patterns of increased white matter myelination and ...
Neuropsychological profiles of children with aqueductal stenosis and spina bifida myelomeningocele
(Journal of the International Neuropsychological Society, 2013-02)
We compared neuropsychological profiles in children with shunted hydrocephalus secondary to aqueductal stenosis (AS), a rare form of congenital hydrocephalus, and spina bifida myelomeningocele (SBM), a common form of ...
