The movies in the left and centre panels are surface renders of neuroanatomical domains. These have been manually defined in the N454 CS19 OPT model using specialised software and then visualised using commercial rendering packages.

Left: The domains are neural tube - orange; heart - red; liver - green; eye - dark blue; otic vesicle - yellow and dorsal root ganglia - light blue.

Centre: The domains are eye - light grey; pallium - red, subpallium & hypothalamus - orange; prosomere 3 - yellow, prosomere 2 - bright green, prosomere 1 - dark green, mesencephalon - blue; metencephalon - purple; myelencephalon - pink; spinal cord - maroon.

The movie on the right shows the same N454 model and painted anatomical domains being digitally sectioned through the z-plane. The various domains are: heart - red; liver - dark green; eye - dark blue; otic vesicle - yellow; dorsal root ganglia - cyan. The CNS domains have been further subdivided as follows: pallium - red, subpallium - orange, hypothalamus - light brown, prosomere 3 - bright green, prosomere 2 - green, prosomere 1 - dark green; mesencephalon - blue; isthmus - dark purple, metencephalon (rhombomeres 1-6) - purples/pinks; myelencephalon (rhombomeres 7-11) - magenta; spinal cord - maroon.
