Figure 1.
This dark-field photomontage of an E 4041 African green monkey shows the full extent of brain development from the forebrain (right) to the hindbrain (left). The ventricular system (V) forms a prominent cavity which can serve as a useful neuroanatomical landmark. The mesencephalic flexure (arrows) demarcates the developing ventral mesencephalon. This region is illustrated in greater detail in Fig. 2.
