Human embryo

(Stage 8, day 18)

Scanning EM dorsal view (cut amnion) showing detailed view of the embryonic disc ectoderm, neural groove, brain fold and prechordal region.

Note the rostro-caudal axis (top to bottom), the growing brain region of the neural plate (top) and shape of the folding embryonic disc.

Selected region from the image of the entire embryonic disc image, there is also a detailed image of the prechordal region.

Primitive node and streak still visible below the region where the posterior (caudal) neuropore will be located.

Note the cut edge of amniotic sac with two layers (inner ectoderm, outer extra-embryonic mesoderm)
