Fig. 6. Facial-acoustic Complex Human Embryo 7 mm

Sagittal section of a 7 mm. human embryo (B. 17), showing the relations of the facial-acoustic complex.

In Fig. 6 the ventral or motor division of the facial nerve can be seen cut obliquely at the ventral edge of the geniculate ganglion. In this embryo the dorsal root or pars intermedius is fully as large as the ventral or motor root; but the proportion is gradually reversed as one looks through older stages, due to the more rapid growth of the ventral root. The pars intermedius is in this sense a more prominent structure in fetal life than in the adult, indicating that phylogenetically it has played a more important role in lower forms than in man. With the development of the connective tissue the geniculate ganglion becomes inclosed in a sheath, and is walled off from the motor root, against which it continues to lie, as may be seen in Fig. 8.
