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.
