Abstract
Embryonic development of the nervous system is a challenging topic within the medical school curriculum. Nonetheless, it is essential for future physicians to have a basic knowledge of this subject as it provides context for the congenital disorders affecting the nervous system. Supplemented with numerous illustrations, this article provides medical students a basic context of homeostatic neuroembryology of the brain, spinal cord and cranial nerves. Furthermore, we provide a brief overview of the common congenital disorders that can occur as a result of disruptions in these normal developmental processes.

Keywords: Medical Education, Neurodevelopment, Neuroembryology, Neurophobia
