Abstract

Recent experimental and clinical evidence indicates that the development and the maturation of the Central Nervous System (CNS) of mammals is deeply influenced by hormones; these interact with several other factors which are also of importance for the physiological maturation of the brain (state of nutrition, temperature, etc.). Hormones participate in the process of myelination, in the organization of neuroendocrine phenomena and in the esta-blishement of behavioral patterns. It is apparent from many data that, in all species examined so far, the period of highest sensitivity and vulnerability of the CNS corresponds to that in which the brain grows fastest.
