Plate iI. Ten-Somite Human Embryo

Fig. 5. Microphotograph of a section passing through the caudal part of the acoustico-facial primordium ( x 500). Here the primordium is seen as bilaterally symmetrical masses of cells lying dorso-lateral to the neural tube (cp. figs. l and 7). The otic placodes are well shown.

Fig. 6. Microphotograph of section at the level of the first somite ( x 500). Neural crest cells of the occipito-spinal group are to be seen in the angle between the neural tube and the somatic ectoderm.

Fig. 7. Microphotograph of a section through the cranial part of the acoustico-facial neural crest primordium ( x 500). There is an appearance here as if cells are being budded olf dorsally from the region of apposition of the neural folds to join the mass of crest cells. The neural folds are seen not to be completely fused.
