In a Harvey Lecture, L. B. Flexner (1951–52) defined a critical period in the development of the brain of the guinea pig fetus, during which there is sudden anatomic, biochemical, and functional maturation of the brain. Dobbing (1981) stressed the sensitivity of rapidly developing neural structures to damage by negative environmental factors, including metabolic abnormalities and cerebral hypoxia (“vulnerable periods”). The third trimester of pregnancy and early infancy appears to be such a vulnerable period for the human, probably because of the rapid growth of the neuropil, including axons, dendrites, and synapses, that occurs during this period.
The Formation and Migration of Cortical Neurons in the Adult Brain There are several areas in the primate brain where formation of neurons continues after birth. , 1999). The study by Eriksson et al. (1998), carried out in postmortem human brains, yielded results similar to those found in studies of subhuman primates. Recently, evidence has been presented that formation of new neurons also occurs in adult neocortex. Neuronal birth in the subependymal zone, migration through the white matter, and incorporation into the neocortex have been described in primates during adult life.
The reasons for this are not well understood. One possibility is that late development of dendrites, but normal or near-normal growth of axons, will lead to a mismatching of synaptic connections because the nor34 . N E U R O A N A T O M I C A L S U B S T R A T E S mally arriving axons are unable to find their normal targets for innervation. Evidence of such mismatching has been reported in a study on the effects of experimental hypothyroidism on synaptic connections in the hippocampus of rats (Rami, Patel, and Rabie, 1986a, 1986b).
