Embryo at 26 days, computer-generated image from a micro-MRI scan. At this stage the embryo measures 4 millimetres in length. The head region (top) is bent downwards so that the developing central nervous system can be seen. The tube-like structure in the head region indicates the developing spinal cord. The tail of the embryo can be seen curving upwards so that the spinal cord and somites (muscle blocks, orange) are seen.
