Fig. 220 Human Embryo Week 4

At a slightly later period the sheet of mesoderm on each side of the neural tube becomes longitudinally separated from the more laterally situated mesoderm (Fig. 220, A and C) and at the same time divided into a series of segments (mesoblastic somites). In the chick the first somites formed are the occipital somites (J. T. Patterson, Biological Bulletin, 1907, vol. xiii, p. 121), then follow in turn the cervical, thoracic, lumbar, sacral, and coccygeal. It is probable that the first somites formed in the human embryo belong to the occipital region. In the latter half of the first month of development in the human embryo there are found anterior to the cersdcal myotomes three incomplete occipital myotomes. The relations of these myotomes to the first somites differentiated have not yet been definitely determined. Etemod (Anat. Anz., 1899, p. 131) has described an embryo with eight somites, Kollmann (Anat. Anz., 1890, Arch. f. Anat. u. Physiol., Anat. Abt., 1891) one with fourteen (Fig. 220, A), and Mall (Journ. Morphol., 1897) likewise one with fourteen. Mall considers the first three somites in his embryo to be occipital somites. They probably correspond with the first three somites in the embryo described by Kollmann and possibly with the first three in the embryo described by Eternod.
