2-2-10 Brain Development, Plasticity & Repair[email protected]Development of the BrainA. Neural plate thickensB. Neural tube forms - “neurulation”I.Anterior end becomes brainII. Posterior end becomes spinal cordIII.Fluid inside becomes ventricles & central canal – failure of the neural tube to close properly results in a neural tube defect.a.Anencephaly – rostral neural tube doesn't close (the brain does not develop)b.Spina bifida – caudal neural tube doesn't closeC. Growth & Development of NeuronsI.ProliferationII. MigrationIII.Differentiation
