Central Nervous System - Secondary Brain Vesicles
These 5 secondary vesicles developed from the initial 3 primary vesicles of the early neural tube, by division of the forebrain and hindbrain regions.
The more mature brain with five brain vesicles: the horizontal and lateral views correspond to GD 11.5 in rats and 33 ± 1 in humans.
