A personal message from Dr Mark Hill (May 2020)

I have decided to take early retirement in September 2020. During the many years online I have received wonderful feedback from many readers, researchers and students interested in human embryology. I especially thank my research collaborators and contributors to the site. The good news is Embryology will remain online and I will continue my association with UNSW Australia. I look forward to updating and including the many exciting new discoveries in Embryology!

Factors Involved In The Formation Of The Filum Terminale

From The Department Of Embryology, Carnegie Institution of Washington, Baltimore, Maryland.

In a study recently published by the writer1 on the development of the cartilaginous capsule of the ear in human embryos it was pointed out that the changes in size and form which the capsule undergoes during its development are accomplished not only by a progressive differentiation, but also in part by a retrogressive differentiation of its constituent tissues. The margins of the cartilaginous cavities are in a continual state of change; they exhibit an unstable equilibrium between two opposing tendencies: on one hand, toward the deposit of new cartilage, and on the other, toward the excavation of the old. The margins thereby are always advancing; or receding, and as a result of this there is provided a suitable suite of chambers for the contained membranous labyrinth in all stages of its development.

It is the feature of retrogressive differentiation or dedifferentiation that I wish particularly to recall here. The fact that certain areas of cartilaginous tissue'revert to an earlier embryonic type and are subsequently redifferentiated into a tissue of a Widely different histological character, is very clearly shown in the case of the otic capsule, and is a factor of great embryological significance. Such a process of retrogressive change, combined with redifferentiation of the same tissue, greatly in— creases the facilities for and the range of certain structural
