28 CHAPTER 6 The new perspective was gaining ground: “ considerable evidence has accumulated to show the dependence of the young embryo on external environmental factors (Terplan 1953); malformations “may be the result of genetic factors or of external factors ” (Crosse and Mackintosh 1954). In evidence of this new regard, the latter authors authors listed in some detail the malformations found in perinatal deaths in Birmingham, among which brain and spinal cord defects were predominant, not unexpected for a region with a high incidence of neural defects.
