  • medullary cord biosynthesis
  • medullary cord formation
  • neural rod formation
  • secondary neurulation
Definition: The formation of the neural tube by coalescence of mesenchymal cells followed by their conversion to epithelial cells to form a solid cord that subsequently hollows out (cavitates) to create a hollow tube. Secondary neurulation is the typical mechanism of formation of the neural tube posterior to the posterior neuropore in mammals. 0878932585
