Experimentalis, Autism Research, Neural Processing Letters, Neuroinformatics Congenital Brain Defects: Congenital brain defects are abnormalities in the brain that are present at birth. The defects typically affect the bone and soft tissue in the head and spine. There are many different types of these malformations. They can vary greatly from mild to severe conditions. A congenital brain defect usually occurs due to an interruption in the normal growth of the nervous system. The brain begins to form in the first month after conception. Development of the brain begins from a small, special plate of cells on the surface of the embryo. These cells grow and form the different regions of the brain. When this process is disturbed, it can cause structural defects in the brain and skull. Normal brain function can be impaired even if only the skull’s growth is upset.
