Plate 4. Left lateral view of a wax-plate reconstruction of the larger blood-vessels of the brain in a human embryo 21 mm long

Carnegie Collection Embryo No. 460

Enlarged 16.4 diameters.

  • Instead of the head being drained by the primary head-vein, this is now accomplished by a more dorsally situated channel that has formed through the meshes of the middle and posterior dural plexuses to become the transverse sinus.
    • Compare with text-figure 3. which shows a left profile of the same specimen.
  • All that is left of the primary head-vein is that portion which is to become the cavernous sinus.
  • In this model the right cerebral hemisphere has been dissected so as to expose the chorioidal body with its arterial feeder anil the straight sinus draining it.
  • The plexiform character of the superior sagittal sinus and of the caudal end of the straight sinus is indicative of their transitory condition.
