This chapter summarizes the effects of ethanol on the outgrowth and maturation of dendrites and axons, focusing on central nervous system neurons developing in vivo or in vitro. Selected observations highlight both well-established and emerging insights on the effects of ethanol on axonal and dendritic growth. One section describes how recent advances in developmental neural cell biology are informing work aimed at understanding the mechanisms underlying the disruption of neuronal development by ethanol.

Keywords:   ethanol exposure, dendrites, axons, outgrowth, neurons, central nervous system, neuronal development
