At the lateral extremes of this migration, the mesodermal cells become continuous with the extraembryonic mesoderm (splanchnopleuric) covering the yolk sac and that covering the amnion (somatopleuric). Anteriorly, the embryonic mesodermal cells become continuous across the midline in front of the prochordal plate. Soon after the appearance of the primitive streak, which forms as a line on the surface, a further heaping of cells occurs at the anterior end. This is the primitive knot from which the notochordal process extends forwards to the posterior edge of the prochordal plate.

21). In the subcutaneous tissue overlying joints, subcutaneous bursae exist, which contain a small amount of fluid thereby facilitating movement of the skin in these regions. Cutaneous sensory receptors The nerve endings in skin vary in structure from simple to complex formations. Simple nerve endings are those in which the axon terminates without undergoing any branching or other elaboration. Complex endings are those in which the axons undergo any of a variety of changes, such as forming expansions, assuming a tangled appearance, or becoming surrounded by additional specialized tissue.

After four divisions, the mass of cells is known as a morula (Fig. 24A). The morula Evidence suggests that the nuclei of individual cells come to lie in quantitatively and qualitatively different cytoplasmic environments; the initial circumstances of cellular differentiation have therefore been created. Furthermore, the blastomeres of the future inner cell mass are able to move with respect to one another. Consequently, the basis for cell movement during gastrulation and the possibility of inductive cellular interaction, resulting from the acquisition of a new microenvironment by an individual cell, are established.
