PW2 was infected around week 9 of gestation, during embryonic neurulation and cortical neurogenesis, which lay the foundation for the developing brain.
It was proposed in their study that during neurulation cadmium exposure not only affected the structure but also the chemistry of the cells and produces endogenous marker signals reactive oxygen species (ROS) that cause the oxidative stress.
Notably, echinoderms do not develop a neural tube in either the larval life stage or the adult life stage, similar to vertebrate neurulation (Mashanov et al., 2007; Garner et al., 2016).

N-cad-based adherens junctions (AJs) are known to be involved in various neural development processes, such as neurulation, migration of neurons, elongation and guidance of axons, and synaptogenesis, due to the contribution of AJs to cell-cell adhesion between NPCs and neurons [14].

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.
