Fig. 11. Reconstruction model of an embryo 14 mm long

No. 940 Carnegie Collection. X 15. Here the parts belonging to the jaw are clearly separated from what are to be the soft parts of the upper neck by a groove, which might be called the mental groove.

Between the stages of 10 and 14 mm. there is rapid progress in the formation of the face, as can be seen by comparing figures 10 and 11.

Figure 11 is drawn from a model to show the details of the face region and the topography of the auricular area, the latter shown in blue. The mouth at this time is fairly well outlined, and one can recognize the region between it and the auricular area which is to form the cheek and jaw. As this region enlarges it will result in the further lateral and dorsal displacement of the auricular area. In the preceding stages the latter still extended downward on the ventral surface of the head, whereas now it is entirely on the lateral surface, and the whole area can be seen in a profile view of the embryo. At this stage the six auricular hillocks show their maximum prominence. The three mandibular hillocks, which at first covered a large part of the mandibular bar, now cover only its caudal margin. The three hyoid hillocks still represent the whole surface of the hyoid bar excepting that part which has been molded into the first cleft. It can be seen in figure 11 that this cleft is much wider than in the younger stages, and we can now speak of a distinct fossa angularis. The ventral third of this fossa becomes relatively deeper to form the external auditory meatus, while the remainder is eventually taken up in the formation of the auricle.

Ventrolateral view of the head in a series of human embryos, showing the change in topography of the auricle in the course of its development. The surface area of the mandibular and hyoid bars entering into the formation of the auricular primordium is colored blue. These figures show the lateral and dorsal migration of the auricle coincident with the formation of the mandible.
