10). As axons growing out of the developing retina increase the thickness of the wall of the optic stalk, its lumen becomes obliterated, and the optic stalk becomes known as the optic nerve. The optic nerves of the right and left sides join in the midline to form the optic chiasma, where axons arising from the medial half of each retina cross over to the opposite side. As the rim of the optic cup, in contact with the lens placode, encircles the prospective lens to form the iris, a slight cleft (choroid fissure) remains, permitting the future central artery and vein of the retina access to the retina.

5 = The origin of the developing cells of the CNS. Note that all of the cells are derived from the original neural tube, with the notable exception of the microglial cells, which are phagocytes of the CNS and originate from mesenchymal cells. Ependymal cells will line the ventricles of the brain as well as the central canal of the spinal cord; they also participate in the formation of the choroid plexus. Glioblasts will give rise to macroglia, namely the protoplasmic and fibrous astrocytes, as well as to oligodendrocytes; these cells are supporting cells of the CNS and, in the case of oligodendroglia, form myelin sheaths of CNS neurons.

6). During early development the brain is subdivided into three morphologically recognizable components: the prosencephalon, mesencephalon, and rhombencephalon Myelencephalon The myelencephalon gives The posteriormost region of the developing brain is the myelencephalon rise to the medulla oblon- gata, the rostral continuation of the spinal cord. During the development of the myelencephalon, the pontine flexure arises, and appears to stretch the roof plate, which becomes a thin epithelial layer.
