  • Description - Imagine the excitement of seeing this incredible early period of human development for the first time. Now consider that much of our initial understanding of human development is based upon study of historic embryo collections. You can now look at these historic images of the first 8 weeks after fertilisation and explore for yourself the changes that occur in human development during this key period. This current book is designed as an atlas of the Carnegie embryo stages with some brief notes and additional information covering the first 8 weeks of development. These images are from from the beginning of last century and are one of the earliest documented series of human embryos collected for basic research and medical education on development. I hope you enjoy learning about the amazing early events that begin to make and shape us. This is the second book in a series of educational releases from UNSW Embryology.

Events

  • Head Development[2]
    • superficial vascular plexus - has spread nearly to the vertex of the head.
  • Limb Development[2]
    • length - considerable growth occurred in two days.
    • forearm - sometimes raised to a level above that of the shoulder
    • hands - extend far out in front of the embryo.
    • humerus - All five cartilaginous phases are now present[3] (Streeter, 1949, figs. 3 and 18).
  • Vision
    • The retina comprises the pigmented layer, external limiting membrane, proliferative zone, external neuroblastic layer, transient fiber layer, internal neuroblastic layer, nerve fiber layer, and internal limiting membrane. Eyelids closure is complete (Note - shown as still open in the Kyoto embryo).[4]
    • The cornea now comprises the anterior epithelium and its basement membrane, the substantia propria, and the posterior epithelium (Streeter, 1951, fig. 18, and O’Rahilly, 1966[5], figs. 51 and 59).
    • Optic nerve a vascular canal is present and sheath in the more advanced specimens (O’Rahilly, 1966[5] , fig. 55).
  • Joint - knee cavity, anterior cruciate ligament and posterior cruciate ligament present[6]
  • Hearing - Cochlear duct tip now points “downward” for the second time (fig. 19-6). The duct is coiled to nearly its final extent of 2½ turns.
  • Vomeronasal organ - A narrow canal is seen in the long, tapering duct. The sac is beginning to shrink and retrogress (fig. 19-9).
  • Submandibular gland - Lumina are found in many terminal branches of the duct (fig. 19-10). Orientation of the epithelial tree is beginning, and angiogenesis is commencing around the epithelium. A mesodermal sheath is beginning to form around the gland.
  • Renal - Metanephros secretory tubules are changing from short to long, and becoming more convoluted. The epithelium in some tubules is high. Renal tubules of fourth and fifth orders are present. Large glomeruli are numerous (fig. 19-12).
  • Endocrine[7]
    • Pituitary - adenohypophysis loss of the stalk and lobules of epithelium project into the mesodermal component of the gland, and oriented epithelial follicles are present (Streeter, 1951, plate 2). Abundant angioblasts and capillaries are found.
    • Pineal - The pineal body has reached Stadium 5 of Turkewitsch (1933).[8]
    • Thymus‎ - The cortex is well-developed, "true lobulation" has begun with the appearance of" fine superficial scallops," lymphocytes are present sparsely in the subcortical zone, and vessels are found within the thymus (Norris 1938).
    • Adrenal‎
      • Adrenal Cortex - It appears that C2 cells first enter the body of the gland at this stage. The pattern of the arterial supply is established. The cellular "capsule" is penetrated by arterial capillaries which join the sinusoids. Their points of entry give the surface of the gland an appearance of cobblestones. The zona glomerulosa is formed of CI and C3 cells. Cells from this zone and from the "capsule" migrate centrally into the cords.[9]
      • Adrenal Medulla - Nerve fibres and neuroblasts are first seen in the body of the gland. The paragangtion (M3) cells are beginning to multiply rapidly and, from 30 mm (stage 23) until birth, some are differentiating into chromaffin cells.[9]
  • Meninges (Spinal Cord) - dura mater may be followed completely around the inner wall of vertebral canal. Ventral dura rudiment is a densely cellular band of tissue with most medial parts in direct contact with tissues associated with dorsal surfaces of centra and intervertebral disks. Stratified cells lying on dorsal surface of centra and intervertebral disks can be separated into three layers: an outer perichondrial layer adjacent to cartilaginous tissue; an intermediate layer more restricted in transverse extent and ultimately forms dorsal longitudinal ligament; and an inner layer the ventral dura rudiment.[10]
