Head circumference is a direct reflection of head growth When the growth is below norms it is classed as microcephaly. The result of microcephaly is a degree of retardation in growth. If the microcephaly is benign, the limitation is not significant in development.
The hypthalamus indirectly controls growth from infancy to adulthood by keeping active and telling the growth hormone to regulate.
It is fertilisation
The instructions for growth and development are in DNA.
