Early human brain development is an extremely complex process which is highly susceptible to genetic and environmental conditions. These factors may cause subtle changes in early brain development and subsequent neurodevelopmental impairment. The main objective of this thesis is to provide more insight in early human brain development during the embryonic, fetal and early neonatal period and factors that disrupt this process.
