Caption: Chicken embryo. Light micrograph of a longitudinal section through a 3-day-old chicken embryo. The head is at upper left, and includes the brain, fore-brain, mid-brain, and hind-brain. The body's somites (solid red, vertebral segments) go from upper centre to lower centre, with the spinal cord (white tubes) between them. The heart (upper centre) is between the brain and the body. Parts of the yolk arteries and veins are seen surrounding the embryo. Magnification: x13 when printed 10 centimetres tall.
