The causes of the heterotopias span the genetic and nongenetic categories. The sixth class is schizencephaly, which describes a cleft in the brain surface, which is commonly associated with a microgyric four-layered cortex and heterotopias. The seventh class are cerebellar cortical dysplasias and heterotopias. The usual heterotopia is a patch containing a disordered array of granule cells, molecular layer, and Purkinje cells. These may be seen in routine autopsies of "normal" infants and are also common in a variety of disorders such as the Dandy-Walker syndrome, and in GM2-gangliosidosis.

They discovered that the retina remained entirely functional, but that the LGN and the visual cortex had specific abnormalities. The cells in the layers of the LGN supplied by the nonfunctional eye had decreased in size, although functionally they behaved normally. The primary visual cortex had both striking functional and anatomical abnormalities. As we have already described, Layer 4 in the normal primary visual cortex has alternating columns of cells that respond predominantly to stimulation from one eye.

This is an excellent example of the ability ofaxons to follow precise pathways. We address the topic of axon guidance in greater detail later in the chapter. The thalamus is a diencephalic structure made up of several collections of cells (called nuclei). Many of these nuclei serve as relay stations between the cerebral cortex and more peripheral sensory structures (such as the retina and the cochlea). , 1975). The human LGN is a sixlayered structure (the layers are apparent by about EI4D), with four dorsal layers containing small cells (the parvocellular layers) and two ventral layers containing large cells (the magnocellular layers) (Livingstone & Hubel, 1988).
