Fig. 1. Lateral view of a model of the occipital cartilage, the cervical vertebras the first thoracic vertebra aud the proximal end of the first rib in an embryo 20 mm. long. The costal elements of the cervical vertebrae are cartilaginous and are connected by ligamentous tissue with the transverse processes of the neural arches and with the vertebral bodies. The intervertebral discs are shown except between the fourth and fifth, and the fifth and sixth vertebnie. Dense interarticular tissue is shown between the articular processes from the second cervical to the first thoracic vertebra and, posterior to this, interlamiuar connectiye tissue membranes and a ligamentous band running from the neural process of the atlas to the thoracic region.
