Abstract

Fusion of the neural arches was studied in 6 serially sectioned human foetuses aged 9 and 10 weeks. In foetuses of 9 weeks, the completion of arches was observed in the cervical, upper thoracic, and middle thoracic regions of the vertebral column. During the 10th week of development, fusion of neural processes progresses in the lower thoracic and upper three lumbar vertebrae.
