Human Fetal Head Week 12

This mid-line section through the early fetal head (12 weeks) shows features of the developing skull, neural (brain), face, mouth, pharynx and neck.


Neural System Endocrine Skeletal System Muscle
  • hypothalamus‎
  • pituitary sitting in the sella turcica.
    • note remnant of Rathke's pouch still visible on floor of developing sella turcica (cartilage)
  • muscle - tongue, attached to mandible, note foramen cecum.
    • genioglossus muscle - attached to mandible
    • geniohyoideus muscle - attaching hyoid bone to mandible
