    The article discusses a neuro-developmental therapeutic approach to learning, coordination and behavioural difficulties in children and adults. Some of the commonly known disorders include dyslexia, dyspraxia and Asperger's syndrome. According to the Institute of Neuro-Physiologic Psychology...

  • Incontinentia Pigmenti: Learning Disabilities Are a Fundamental Hallmark of the Disease. Pizzamiglio, Maria Rosa; Piccardi, Laura; Bianchini, Filippo; Canzano, Loredana; Palermo, Liana; Fusco, Francesca; D'Antuono, Giovanni; Gelmini, Chiara; Garavelli, Livia; Ursini, Matilde Valeria // PLoS ONE;Jan2014, Vol. 9 Issue 1, p1 

    Studies suggest that genetic factors are associated with the etiology of learning disabilities. Incontinentia Pigmenti (IP, OMIM#308300), which is caused by mutations of the IKBKG/NEMO gene, is a rare X-linked genomic disorder (1∶10000/20∶000) that affects the neuroectodermal tissues....

    Investigations to explore human handedness have been conducted for ages. It is still uncertain what causes people to use the left or the right hand. Clues supporting the genetic origin of handedness have been accumulating and provide the best evidence. Nevertheless, in some populations there are...
