Welcome to our new feature: NEUROLOGY FLASHCARDS! Understanding is paramount, but unfortunately, one aspect of academic success does rely on simple memorization and repetition. In our new Neurology flashcards feature, we have taken the most commonly seen rote memory topics and “buzzwords” from neurology board and RITE* exams and made easy to use flashcards. These work on desktop, tablet, and mobile devices. This is a new feature, so please contact us if you see any issues! FLASHCARDS will be available for all chapters soon!

All nervous tissue is derived from this germinal layer.

The notochord becomes this final structure
Intervertebral discs
The notochord is mesodermal tissue. It becomes the intervertebral discs, but it induces overlying neuroectoderm to become the neural plate, which later invaginates to form the neural tube.

Structures derived from neural crest cells
Schwann cells, neuroglial cells, parasympathetic, and postganglionic sympathetic fibers
Neural crest cells, which line the notochord, also develop into melanocytes, pia and arachnoid, thyroid, and teeth.
