A section through the dorsal edge of the optic cup and primitive pharynx.

Observe:
1. The choroid invagination into the lateral ventricle and the relation of the primordial hippocampus and its cortex to the choroid fissure.
2. The junction of the optic stalk and diencephalon.
3. The hypophyseal stem remnant passing through the hypophyseal cartilage.
4. The mandibular nerve terminating in the muscles of mastication.
5. The condensations representing the malleus and incus ossicles between the external acoustic meatus and primitive tympanic cavity.
