A study has been made of the growth of segmental nerves 13 to 16 (SN13 to SN16) into the chick limb bud, from the time when they have just reached the ends to the brachial myotomes (stage 21: Hamburger and Hamilton, '51), until they enter the newly formed ventral (stage 24) and dorsal (stage 25) pre-muscle cell masses in the limb bud. At stage 22 axon bundles of SN13 to SN16 have grown off the ends of their respective myotomes, and converge towards the most densely packed mesenchyme in the limb… CONTINUE READING
