Movement Control

Flow is arguably the main basic and significant functionality of the frightened procedure, because the organism can't exist with no it. Purposive flow calls for the coordination of activities inside many parts of the cerebral cortex, cerebellum, basal ganglia, spinal twine, and peripheral nerves and sensory receptors, which jointly needs to regulate a hugely advanced biomechanical equipment made of the skeleton and muscle tissues.

During development the upper limb bud appears as a swelling from the body wall (Fig. 1c(i)). It develops at the level of the lower cervical and first thoracic segments. At first the limb buds project at right angles to the surface of the body, having ventral and dorsal surfaces and cephalic (preaxial) and caudal (postaxial) borders (Fig. 1c(ii)). As the limb increases in length it becomes differentiated, during which time it is folded ventrally so that the ventral surface becomes medial (Fig. 1c(iii)), with the 45 THE UPPER LIMB: DEVELOPMENT OF THE MUSCULOSKELETAL SYSTEM 3 Fig.

Within the lateral plate mesoderm small, fluid-filled spaces appear which join together to form the intra-embryonic mesoderm, continuous across the midline (Fig. 14a). The intraembryonic mesoderm forms the pericardial (heart), pleural (lung) and peritoneal (abdominal) cavities. During the fourth week following fertilization the trilaminar disc bulges further into the amniotic cavity. Under the cranial and caudal parts of the disc a head and tail fold appear; at the same time marked folding occurs along the lateral margins of the embryo (Fig.

Low frequency sounds cause maximum activity in the basilar membrane; high frequency sounds are limited to the basal portion of the cochlea. THE EYE Development of eye The eyes begin to develop either side of the developing forebrain as optic vesicles by the 35 SKIN, ITS APPENDAGES AND SPECIAL SENSES: EYE end of the fourth week. Continuous with the forebrain the optic vesicles contact the surface ectoderm and induce development of the lens placode. When the optic vesicle invaginates to form the pigmented and neural layers of the retina, the lens placode also invaginates forming the lens pit and lens vesicle.
