Pediatric neurologists are the experts in treating/supporting these individuals. It is attributed to a neuronal migration disorder. Go to the "cortical foundation" for support.
Pachygyria: This term, also called mild lissencephaly, refers to the surface appearance of the brain. Instead of having lots of ridges and grooves, the gyri are flattened. This can occur alone, or in association with other medical problems with varying degrees of developmental delay. Treatment is supportive (occupational and/or physical therapies, medications, feeding programs, etc.). Hope this helps.

BP definition.: The blood pressure is the resistance to blood flow through the body. The higher number is the resistance when the heart pumps, and the lower number is the resistance when the heart relaxes and fills. High BP can lead to problems with the heart, kidneys, eyes, blood vessels and brain. 95% of the time, there's no one specific cause perhaps other than genetics.See 1 more doctor answer
WorkingInternalFears: During sleep, our minds/brains work to both integrate awake experiences into memory &, as part of this, make sense of many issues, correctly or incorrectly, the best we can. Fears, anger & sadness, emotions we typically have the most difficulty with, are commonly repressed while awake; allows function & interaction with others. However, while dreaming, issues are worked on & sometimes remembered.See 3 more doctor answers
