  Sclerotome   Dermatome
  • sclerotome later becomes subdivided
    • rostral and caudal halves separated laterally by von Ebner's fissure
  • half somites contribute to a single vertebral level body
  • other half intervertebral disc
  • therefore final vertebral segmentation “shifts”
  • connective tissue underlying epidermis
  • begins as a dorsal thickening
  • spreads throughout the body
  Myotome
  • Body - epaxial and hypaxial muscles
  • Limbs - flexor and extensor muscles
