Abstract

What is the status of the dichotomy proposed and the nosological validity of the contrasting pathologies described? How plausibly can dysregulated imprinting explain the array of features described, compared with other genetic models? We believe that considering alternative models is more likely to lead in the long term to the correct classification and explanation of the component behaviours.
