Primary microcephaly is characterized by a significantly reduced head circumference likely directly caused by the development of a small, but apparently normally formed brain (see links to subtypes below). All patients are affected mentally. Fly stocks in the Bloomington collection that can be used to study primary microcephaly are listed here.
