what is the definition of neural tube defect?

Question:
Does anyone have any information and/or links on something called "Neural Tube Defects"?


Answer:
A neural tube defect is a birth defect occurring in the brain or spinal cord (backbone). The neural tube is the part of the fetus that becomes the spinal cord and brain.

NTDs are the most common birth defects in ferrets.
