Figure 6

(a) Magnetic resonance images of a polymicrogyric brain display a reduced cortical thickness, an increase in number and a decrease in size of gyri and sulci. (b), (c) Simulated morphologies for severely reduced cortical thickness at physiological and severely reduced subcortical growth rates display increased gyrification without and with formation of secondary folds.
