Neurodevelopmental Malformations: Etiology and Clinical Manifestations

  • George W. Hynd
  • Allison E. Morgan
  • Melanie Vaughn

Neuropsychologists frequently work with patients who have specified brain lesions that produce well-documented cognitive or behavioral effects. However, for those clinicians working with school-age children or adolescents who suffer developmental disorders, the pathogenesis of cognitive and behavioral deficits may be poorly understood.
