Abstract

The study was conducted on 6 human embryos at stage 13. It was found that the facial-vestibulocochlear complex is closely related to the otic vesicle, and the particular components of that complex may be distinguished. They show different cellular arrangement and shape.
The neural crest cells migrating from the dorsal hindbrain are continuous with cells forming the cochlear ganglion. This gives evidence for neural crest contribution to the cochlear ganglion.
