Back to fetal stages
10 weeks post conception



This movie is a surface render of anatomical domains. The anatomy has been manually defined in an MRI model of a 10pcw fetus, using specialised software and then rendered using commercial rendering packages. The various domains are: central nervous system - orange, ear - yellow, eye- dark blue, optic nerve - purple, pituitary - green, dorsal root ganglia - cyan.
