Study Notes

Craniofacial Development

  • The fundamental mechanisms involved in the development of the craniofacial region are patterning, morphogenesis, and differentiation.

Development of the Face

  • The development of the face occurs between the 3rd and 8th weeks of embryonic development.

Contribution to Craniofacial Development

  • The neural tube contributes to craniofacial development by expanding greatly into the forebrain, midbrain, and hindbrain.

Paraxial Mesoderm Formation

  • The paraxial mesoderm forms the somites during craniofacial development.

Neural Crest Cell Migration

  • The neural crest cells from the midbrain and the first two rhombomeres migrate to the first and second pharyngeal arches during craniofacial development.
