Paper - The development of the neural folds and cranial ganglia of the rat
Draft Version Only
The early development of the neural tube and cranial ganglia has been investigated with some degree of completeness in only a few mammalian forms. There are, it is true, numerous accounts based upon the study of very limited material and the literature abounds with observations on the development of the neural tube and cranial ganglia made incidentally in works dealiiig with the general anatomy of the embryo. Bartelmex ('22, '23) has recently called attention to the paucity of our knowledge of this subject and has himself contributed greatly to our understanding of the early devel- opment of the neural folds and sensory anlagen of the human embryo.
The reasons for the scarcity of work dealing with the de- velopment of these structures in the Mammalia are obvious, since the difficulties attending the collectioii of complete series of mammalian embryos are well known. In studying human embryos investigators have been especially handicapped both by the scarcity of the material at their command and the faulty preservation which such embryos frequently exhibit due to the circumstances under which they are obtained.
