IDDRC special issue (2018)

Series Editors: Shafali Spurling Jeste, Charles Nelson

Journal of Neurodevelopmental Disorders is pleased to present this inaugural annual IDDRC special thematic series focused on developmental cognitive neuroscience, featuring a wide range of topics on the functional and structural neuroanatomy and aberrant neural circuitry of different neurodevelopmental disorders such as autism.

This collection of articles is sponsored by the Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Research Centers (IDDRCs) and articles have undergone the journal’s standard peer-review process. The Series Editors declare no competing interests.

  1. Epilepsy affects 2.2 million adults in the USA, with 1 in 26 people developing epilepsy at some point in their lives. Temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE) is the most common form of focal epilepsy as medial structures...
