Fig. 419. Diagram to illustrate the planes of section made in dissecting the tongue

The development of the tongue may be studied from dissections of pig embryos 6, 9, and 13 mm. long. As the pharynx is bent nearly at right angles, it is necessary to cut away its roof by two pairs of sections passing in different planes. The first plane of section cuts through the eye and first two branchial arches just above the cervical sinus (Fig. 419, 1 ). From the surface, the razor blade should be directed obliquely dorsad in cutting toward the median line. Cuts in this plane should be made from either side. In the same way, make sections on each side in a plane forming an obtuse angle with the first section and passing dorsal to the cervical sinus {u). Now sever the remaining portion of the head from the body by a transverse section in a plane parallel to the first {uI). Place the ventral portion of the head in a watch glass of alcohol, and, under the dissecting microscope, remove that part of the preparation cranial to the mandibular arches. Looking down upon the floor of the pharynx, remove any portions of the lateral pharyngeal wall which may still interfere with a clear view of the pharyngeal arches, as seen in Fig. 84. Permanent mounts of the three stages mentioned above may be made and used for study by the student.
