Term Detail
MP term:abnormal diencephalon morphology
Synonym: abnormal betweenbrain morphology
Synonym: abnormal interbrain morphology
Synonym: abnormal thalamencephalon morphology
Synonym: diencephalon dysplasia
MP id: MP:0000830
Definition: any structural anomaly of the paired caudal parts of the prosencephalon from which the thalamus, hypothalamus, epithalamus and subthalamus are derived; these regions regulate autonomic, visceral and endocrine function, and process information directed to the cerebral cortex
