The number of neurons constituting the brain is a direct reflection of the number of cells produced during early development. This chapter discusses the effects of ethanol on spatiotemporal patterns and systems regarding cell proliferation. During development more neurons are produced than the number comprising the mature brain. A “correction” occurs through the natural death of many neurons.

Keywords:   spatiotemporal patterns, neurons, cell proliferation, early development
