This mid-line section through the fetal head shows features of the developing skull and the brain, face and mouth.

Neural

  • developing brain and brainstem.
  • lamina terminalis (site of anterior neuropore closure).
  • fourth ventricle.
  • developing pituitary sitting in the sella turcica.

Musculoskeletal

  • cartilage - septum of the nose.
  • bone - ossifying nasal concha.
  • bone - palate roof of mouth.
  • cartilage - soft palate back of mouth.
  • cartilage - base of skull and vertebra.
  • muscle - tongue, attached to mandible, note foramen cecum.
