bilateral perisylvian polymicrogyria

The most common form (OMIM:300388) of polymicrogyria, a malformation of the cerebral cortex in which the normal gyri are replaced by multiple small, partly fused gyri separated by shallow sulci, resulting in mild mental retardation, epilepsy and pseudobulbar palsy, and difficulties with speech and feeding.

Molecular pathology
Defects of SRPX2, which encodes a secreted protein that may play in the development of speech and language centres in the brain, cause bilateral perisylvian polymicrogyria.

The BPP is a six-year program being implemented by the Biodiversity Management Bureau (BMB), an attached agency of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources, with funding from the Global Environment Facility (GEF), through the United Nations Development Program (UNDP).
BMB Director Theresa Mundita Lim said the BPP's participation was in line with the conference theme, "Biodiversity for Sustainable Development."
"We deemed this a timely and relevant opportunity for BPP and the bureau's undertakings and accomplishments on partnerships for landscape-level biodiversity management towards sustainable conservation to be underlined and shared to other countries," Lim said.
