Genetic insights into the development of the mammalian brain have changed the way neurologists treat and diagnose patients with brain developmental disorders. This chapter will review of the formation of the human brain and the disorders that result from disturbances in this development. The genetic consequences of presenting a diagnosis of a brain malformation to the child and family are considerable, and it is important that neurologists understand these disorders in order to advise patients and families accordingly.
