Summary

Tuberous Sclerosis is a genetic disease characterized by lesions of the skin and central nervous system, seizures, and sometimes sever mental retardation. Infants with this disease may appear overactive, autistic, or socially impaired. Because tuberous sclerosis involves abnormal cellulardifferentiation, aberrant neuronal migration, and excessive cell proliferation, this thoroughly revised edition will be of interest to a wide range of professionals involved in the study of biological mechanisms underlying many genetically determined neurological disorders.
