The Development of the brain from CS17 to 13PCW

 

The movies below illustrate the changing complexity of the central nervous system between CS17 and 13 post conceptional weeks (PCW). Regions of the CNS, pallium (red), subpallium (yellow), hypothalamus (brown), diencephalon (green), mesencephalon (blue), metencephalon (purple), myelencephalon (pink) and spinal cord (deep red) have been manually defined at CS17, CS19, CS22, 10PCW and 13PCW.

The top row of images show the painted anatomy in 2D, while the movies below show the same domains in 3D.
