Neuronal migration is the process by which postmitotic neurons translocate from their birthplace in proliferative zones to the appropriate target structure where the neurons integrate into the emerging network. The inability of neurons to properly migrate is one cause of neurological disorders. The cerebral cortex is the brain region most frequently described as exhibiting malformations designated a neuronal migration disorders (NMDs). This chapter shows how NMDs detected in cases of fetal alcohol syndrome are likely caused by ethanol interfering with each phase of the migration.
