The study of neuroscience begins with a survey of the embryonic development of the nervous system because it provides a framework and background for understanding the anatomy and function of the nervous system in the adult. The eventual location and connectivity of the structures in the brain, spinal cord, and peripheral nervous system reflect the orderly development of the nervous system.
