Introduction
  • Embriology
    • neurulation
      • at the third week of gestation
        • the notocord induces the formation of the neural plate
        • the neural plate (neuroectoderm) will give rise to the central nervous system
          • elevation of the lateral edges of the neural plate develop
            • the neural folds which eventually form the
              • neural tube
                • the neural tube fuses in the
                  • cervical region and then fuses
                    • in both the cephalad and caudal direction
        • the neural crest cells give rise to the
          • peripheral nervous system and non-neural structures
  • Clinical correlate
    • neural tube defects
