ABSTRACT
Chapter 19 of the book "Clinical Pediatric Neurology," Third Edition, is presented. The chapter looks at the process of nervous system development. New cell types such as neurons emerge between 2.5 and four weeks of gestation. Distinct neural fates in the spinal cord are said to be influenced by concentration gradients produced by the synthesis, release and diffusion of inductive signals from signaling sources.
