The movie below shows anatomical domains defined in the N448 model. The domains have been manually defined in the OPT model using specialised software and then visualised using commercial rendering packages.

The various domains are: neural tube - orange; eye - dark blue; otic vesicle - yellow; dorsal root ganglia - cyan.

Carnegie Stage 23 Definition

 

Age is approximately 56 postovulatory days

Length is approximately 28-30mm (middle range); full range is 23-32mm

The eyelids are starting to fuse at margins. The superficial vascular plexus is rapidly approaching the vertex of the head. The limbs have increased markedly in length and show more advanced differentiation of their subdivisions.
