Flashcards in W19/L6: Embryology of NS Deck (11):
What are the 3 layers of the trilaminar embryo?
What is the process of neuralation?
The epithelial cells take on a special character, forming the neural plate.
The neural plate begins to invaginate to form a groove.
The "lips" of the groove fold in on themselves to make a tube lying below the remaining ectoderm
What structure lies beneath the neural tube as it is developing?
In what order does the neural fold "zip up?"
What does a failure in step 2 of neural fold closure cause?
What does a failure in step 5 of neural fold closure cause?
What nutrient is essential for neural fold closure?
What are the three initial vesicles of the neural tube called?
The prosencephalon splits into 2 segments, what are they called?
How many segments does the rhombencephalon then split into
7 (**check this, as it also splits into metencephalon and myeloencephalon)
