" organoids reveal defects in stem cells key to human brain development
"But she got too big and I can't do that any more." It is unknown why Millie developed lissencephaly, which means "smooth brain
The results also explain the shapes of a multitude of mammal brains ranging from the ultrawrinkled dolphin brain to the smooth brain

Both boys have lissencephaly (smooth brain

Alexis has lissencephaly (smooth brain

If a mutation in the gene blocks their formation, a newborn will suffer from a severe form of mental retardation caused by lissencephaly, or "smooth brain
Lissencephaly, which means smooth brain
, is so rare that the doctors at James Cook had to send for a specialist from Newcastle because none of them had ever come across it before.
Madison has lissencephaly (smooth brain
), cortical visual impairments, and a seizure disorder.
