It's embryology: The embryonic neural tube, which will develop into the brain and spinal cord, induces the formation of a new type of cell superiorly, called neural crest cells. They will become many different cell types, including melanocytes, which make pigment in the skin, as well as an amazing number of others, including neurons of the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous system, So they are related.
