Plate 2. Neural and Gastrointestinal Tract

This plate consists of two reconstructions. The upper shows a left lateral view of the brain and cervical cord with the nerves in situ, the aortic arch, and other arteries of the left side of the head and neck. It also represents the oral, nasal and pharyngeal epithelia; the left thymic and thyreoid anlagen; and illustrates in a measure the relation of the nerves and arteries to these epithelial structures.

The lower reconstruction shows the pancreas and spleen within the mesogastrium (a portion of the stomach having been removed) ; the left genital ridge, and the left meso- and metanephros with their ducts opening independently into the urogenital division of the cloaca.

(H. E. C. S39). X 11.2 diams.
