Some injuries to the developing nervous system can be detected with traditional evaluation for morphologic pathology, but many early injuries differ in character from those that are produced later in life. Such injuries arise from interference with developmental processes, rather than destruction of tissue. For example, an injury which kills neurons in the mature CNS leads to gliosis and a reduction in neuronal density, but a reduction in the number of neurons produced during development is not… CONTINUE READING
