Caption: Fish embryo. Historical artwork showing stages in the development of a fish embryo. Figures 1 and 2 show gastrulation, the process of differentiation whereby the 3 germ layers (ectoderm, mesoderm and endoderm) are formed. Figure 3 shows neuralation, the formation of the neural tube, which will become the brain and spinal cord. Figure 4 shows the somites (blocks of mesoderm on either sode of neural tube), which will give rise to muscular and skeletal tissues. Figure 5 shows further differentiation of the head.
