  • It seems both you and Josh Rosenau are purposely avoiding the central point that embryos are dramatically different during the gasturlation and/or neurulation stages depending on the organism, which precedes the pharyngular stage.

  • The major landmarks before this period are gastrulation, when major tissue layers are established, and neurulation, when the neural tube forms.

    Jonathan Wells gets everything wrong, again - The Panda's Thumb

  • In neurulation, as in gastrulation, invagination is much in evidence.

    THE GREATEST SHOW ON EARTH

  • Gastrulation and neurulation are accomplished early in development and they affect the whole shape of the embryo.

    THE GREATEST SHOW ON EARTH

  • You can easily see how this invagination could be a useful move in inflating origami, and it does indeed play a major role in both gastrulation and neurulation.

    THE GREATEST SHOW ON EARTH

  • It is not an accurate representation of neurulation.

    THE GREATEST SHOW ON EARTH

  • Right away, the book stimulated a useful discussion on embryogenesis, haploidy, diploidy, gastrulation, and neurulation.

    Late night variety pak

  • In this paper, we describe for the first time the early development (from fertilization through neurulation) of the plethodontid salamander Ensatina eschscholtzii.

  • I don’t want to get into the details of either gastrulation or neurulation, except to say that they are wonderful, and that the metaphor of origami holds up pretty well for both of them.
