Fig. 1. Sagittal section of the head of a 15 mm. embryo==

The basilar plate (B.P.) is shown extending from behind forwards over the roof of the oropharynx and perforated from behind forwards and above downwards by the notochord (N.C.), and the plate is seen to end at a bridge of loose connective tissue, which, though not identical here in position with that mentioned by Levi and others, may be taken as being a more advanced condition. S. represents the clivus region of the sphenoid; P. the hypophysis and pituitary; T. is the tongue; and L. the side of the larynx.
