Type of Lower Neural Tube Defect where the posterior neuropore fails to close
term describing the primitive brain with no folds or grooves
which embryonic plate of the spinal cord gives rise to the ventral horn of the spinal cord?
Anencephaly result in a failure of what structure to close?
which embryonic plate of the spinal cord gives rise to the dorsal horn of the spinal cord?
the neurohypophysis and the infundibulum of the pituitary arise from what?
the ____ zone forms the white matter of the spinal cord
Optic vesicles, cups, and stalks are derivatives of the _______.
Which family of genes is responsible for the differentiation of the neural tube?

term describing unusually large gyri
Is the sulcus limitans retained in the spinal cord or the brain?
longitudinal groove that separates the alar and basal plates
dilation of the ventricles due to an excess of CSF that may result from either a blockage of CSF circulation or, rarely, an overproduction of CSF (e.g., due to a choroid plexus pap
