  1. aThe percentage of each lobe phenotype was calculated from the total number of brain hemispheres analyzed for each genotype (n). bBrain hemispheres were scored as “axon stalling” when one or more partially elongated α/β lobes were present. cThe complete absence of one or more α/β lobes in a hemisphere was scored as “lobes missing”. dBrain hemispheres presenting any other defects of lobe morphology were scored as “abnormal morphology”
