2.Ventral portion: thymus 

37

What does pouch 4 form?

1.Dorsal portion: superior parathyroid glands

2.Ventral portion: ultimobranchial body (see development of thyroid gland below)

38

What does the ultimobranchial body develop into?  

Parafollicular cells of the thyroid

39

The thyroid gland is derived from a median endodermal thickening of what?

Pharyngeal floor

40

The thyroid gland descends along the pharynx into the neck, remaining connected to the tongue via what?   When does this connection degenerate?

Thyroglossal duct - degerenates by week 7

44

What does the first pharyngeal arch form in the tongue?

body (anterior 2/3) of tongue (GSA from trigeminal n.)
