  • Recent advances in neuroscience and genetics have greatly expanded our understanding of the brain and of the etiological factors involved in developmental delay and mental retardation.[books.google.com]
  • Medical genetics deals with the etiology and pathogenesis of human diseases that are at least partially genetic in origin, along with their prediction and prevention.[accessmedicine.mhmedical.com]

  • Awareness of orbital, ocular and adnexal development and the migratory pattern of neural crest cells is useful for understanding the etiology of congenital orbital, eyelid and lacrimal anomalies.[reviewofophthalmology.com]
  • Among the genetic ones, mental retardation is etiologically heterogeneous and usually linked to syndromic forms. There are still few known genes associated with this phenotype, although for some disorders they are well established.[siicsalud.com]
