A number of non-independent factors, such as neurotransmitter and receptor excesses and reductions, a reduced ability to generate oscillations and synchrony, and changes in gene expression due to primary genetic or environmental causes, may compromise dynamic coordination. This chapter focuses on brain disorders that have been linked to dynamic coordination failures, including autism, epilepsy, amblyopia, schizophrenia, Williams syndrome, Parkinson’s disease, and Alzheimer’s disease.

Keywords:   dynamic coordination, brain disorders, autism, epilepsy, amblyopia, schizophrenia, Williams syndrome, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease
