BACKGROUND Since reports on a pattern of multiple sites of fusion of the neural folds in the mouse appeared, it has been widely assumed that a similar pattern must be valid for the human. In the absence of embryological evidence, claims have been made that such a pattern can be discerned by classifying neural tube defects. METHODS The neural folds and tube, as well as the neuropores, were reassessed in 98 human embryos of Stages 8-13; 61 were controlled by precise graphic reconstructions… CONTINUE READING
