Neurons in the germinal matrix proliferate intensely, and then migrate to different parts of the nervous system. Cells destined to populate a specific brain region arise from a specific part of the germinal matrix. Processes that interfere with normal proliferation and migration cause another set of congenital malformations that includes microcephaly, megalencephaly, cortical heterotopia (band heterotopia, double cortex), agenesis of the corpus callosum, and schizencephaly. Three major callosal abnormalities have been identified: hypoplasia, hypoplasia with dysplasia, and complete agenesis.
