26 Certainly, the pediatric neurosurgeon is just as reliant upon the same contemporary electrodiagnostic, imaging, and surgical technologies as is the colleague who treats adults. Nevertheless, some would suggest that the learning curve is more arduous for the pediatric practitioner who has to accommodate the “differences in scale, anatomy, physiology, and pathology”1 that exist in the infant and child. That said, technological advances have not only been enormously beneficial for the child but have helped adults as well.

The separation of the notochord induces two separate neural plates, and retained tissue between the plates forms a tract or nest of pluripotential cells. Laterally displaced somites lead to vertebral anomalies such as butterfly vertebrae. 42 The underlying defect remains unknown, but two basic mechanisms are likely: aberrant axial mesodermal cell movements or duplication of normal axial structures secondary to inappropriate instructive signaling. 45 Primary Neurulation Neural Plate Induction, Lengthening, Folding, and Fusion Primary neurulation is a complex morphogenetic process with several independent events, overlapping temporally and spatially.
