This chapter examines the prominent role that hormones have in defining the timing and regional specificity of the plastic developmental changes in the central nervous system, and how they coordinate neural maturation with the maturation of other body systems. It analyzes the consequences that physiological, experimental, and pathological alterations in hormonal levels during the developmental period have for the future plastic responses of the central nervous system in response to the changing external and internal environment.

Keywords:   nervous system, hormonal imprinting, neural development, maturation, hormonal influences
