The nurse observes that many of the children affected by genetic aneuploidy have defects in cognition and mental function. How would the genetics nurse specialist explain this phenomenon?

▸ A decrease in oxygenation through the placenta results in the dysfunction of brain cells.

▸ Many of the chromosomes affected by these disorders are involved in the development of the brain and spinal cord.

▸ Because of chromosomal alterations, the brain tissues are unable to release the toxins associated with metabolism.

▸ Aneuploidy results in slight variations in the fetus's thermal control, and sensitive tissues such as the brain, heart, and liver are damaged.
