Neurodevelopment is a complex process that starts in humans as early as the second gestational week with neurulation and continues through adolescence (Rice and Barone 2000).
Neural tube defects (NTDs) are multifactorial midline abnormalities that occur during the neurulation process in embryogenesis.
These specialized cells arise at the time of neurulation and migrate to their target sites in the body, where they give rise to very different cell types such as sensory neurons, glia, melanocytes, adrenal medulla and cranial cartilage/bones.

INTRODUCTION: Development of central nervous system is a highly complicated process and is organized in the following steps: Primary neurulation starts at 3-4 weeks of gestation, followed by prosencephalic development occurs at 2-3 months of gestation, neuronal proliferation starts at 3-4 months of gestation, and neuronal migration at the age of 3-5 months, followed by organization starts from 5 months of gestation to birth, and myelination after the birth will occur.
