Fig. 308 Human Embryo Skull

Membranous skull of an embryo 13 mm long.

The anterior and posterior lateral processes of the occipital plate become united lateral to the hypoglossal nerve, so that the hypoglossal foramen is completed and the membranous pars lateralis of the occipital is formed. This pars lateralis is continued into the membranous vault of the skull, the origin of which is described below. The condensed tissue of the post-hypophyseal region increases in amount and extends about the hypophyseal pocket into the region apical from this, thus completing the anlage of the body of the sphenoid {Fig. 308). This gives rise to orbitotemporal and ethmoidal processes. The orbitotemporal process is first marked by a mass of dense mesenchyme which extends ventrolaterally toward the ectoderm caudal to the optic cup. It is connected with dense tissue which surrounds the anlage of the orbit and with the anlages of the membranous fioor and vault of the skull. In it are developed the orbital and temporal wings of the sphenoid, the origin of which will be described in connection with the chondroeranium. The ethmoidal process extends anteriorly in the median line from the anlage of the body of the sphenoid into the region between the nasal fosste. It forms the anlage of the nasal septum and gives rise to parts of the membranous floor of the cranial cavity and the roof of the mouth (Fig. 310).
