Neurodevelopment disorder is also known as disorder of brain development or neural development disorder. Substantially, it is categorized as impairment of central nervous system or brain. Psychosomatically, it is demarcated as a condition of abnormal brain function that affects the children’s learning ability, emotion and memory as they grow. In the early year of their life, the condition happens and if not treated, it may mete out their learning ability, social behavior, etc.

A neuro-engineer engrossed in behavioral medicine, Curtis Cripe’s academic and professional activities extent several disciplines that include neuro-engineering, psychology, child neurodevelopment, brain injury, aerospace engineering, addiction recovery, psycho-physiology, and software development and programming.

The causes of brain development disorder are still unidentified, but many researchers propose the following:

  1. Genetic passing through metabolic sicknesses.


The illness is passed through from the parent to the inborn. Metabolic and genetic disorder are hard to diagnosis in the new born. The infant may look strong and with no indication when they were born, because the disease will not strike until the time when kids start to make direct contact with their immediate environment.

  1. Immune disorders

For whatsoever reason, the resistant function becomes over-counter to certain situations and starts to outbreak the brain tissues, leading to anomalous movements of the body, obsessive compulsive disorder symptoms and emotional disturbance.

  1. Infectious diseases

Infectious diseases is well-defined as a form of disease which can communicate from the carrier to other individual through one or more of different pathways, including physical contact, body fluid, sharing food, etc.

  1. Nutritional deficiency

Consider it or not, researchers found that women during their pregnancy, who have iodine and folic acid deficiency may cause risk to their babies in contacting neurodevelopmental disorders, leading to austere mental retardation. As resulting of toxins accumulation in the new born central nervous system, excessive intake of both substances above may also cause brain damage.

  1. Physical trauma

Most cases of somatic trauma is caused by congenital injury, it happens due to damage to the brain tissues itself or injure as resulting of lack of oxygen to the brain, leading to cerebral palsy that cause long-lasting physical infirmity in the child development.

  1. Environment toxic


Human beings have produced over 5000 diverse environment toxins, including heavy metals such as mercury, lead. If the child is unfortunate to have high levels of heavy metal stored in their brain due to decontamination dysfunction of body’s organs, it can cause serious brain damage, leading to impairment of physical and emotional development.

  1. Medication

Some researchers found that certain vaccines used to shelter the child may contribute to the commencement of the disease. Thimerosal, one of the vaccine, contains 50 times more toxins than the plain mercury, and if a child cannot excrete them, it may cause mercury accumulation in the brain, leading to austere brain damage and affect the child development.

Researcher like Curtis Cripe found that children born in a family without love, care, and nurture are likely to develop depression and show behavioral impedance. Antibiotic may be another cause of the brain growth disorder, as the medicine destroy the good bacteria, it causes inability of the child in absorbing essential minerals, leading to alimentary causes of neuro-development dysfunction.
