This chapter discusses the effects of ethanol on the incidence of neuronal death and the extracellular mediators that define this death. Ethanol-induced neuronal death occurs during defined periods of the developmental time line. These time periods coincide with those of neuronogenesis and primary synaptogenesis, which are periods of naturally occurring neuronal death (NOND). Exposure of ethanol at this time may exacerbate processes involved in NOND.

Keywords:   ethanol exposure, naturally occurring neuronal death, extracellular mediators
