Neurulation, one of the earliest of developmental processes, has intrigued observers for millennia. The forces that drive the seemingly simple shape changes that are necessary for successful neural tube closure have been a subject of intensive investigation during approximately the last one Much is also now known about the morphology (Fig. 1A) and mechanical nature of the cytoskeleton and other force-producing structures that affect the neural plate (Burnside, 1973; Gordon and Brodland, 1987… CONTINUE READING
