Representative neurons as drawn from Golgi impregnations. A fibrous astrocyte marks the glial scar at the level of cell destruction. C. Schematic model of presumed synaptic organization of polymicrogyric cortex. There may be a proliferation of axon collaterals among tier I neurons above the scar, and below the scar a tangentially oriented pyramidal cell is contacted by several groups of thalamocortical afferents (Atc) and by corticocortical afferents (Acc) • NORMAL AND ABNORMAL DEVELOPMENT OF THE BRAIN 47 likely results from a subtotal destructive process causing cell loss, meager gliosis and subsequent tissue distortion.

NORMAL AND ABNORMAL DEVELOPMENT OF THE BRAIN Fig. 27. 43 Dorsal view of a brain with polymicrogyria as seen after formalin fixation. The frontal lobes are in the left, and the cerebellum can be seen behind the occipital lobes to the right. The cobblestone appearance of polymicrogyric cortex is maximum in the posterior parasagittal convexity where the cortex is greatly thinned, so much so that it has partially collapsed (*).
