From Neural Plate to Neural Tube
The transformation of the neural plate into the neural tube is known as neurulation. During this process, the bilateral outer borders of the neural plate fuse together point-to-point along the median line, forming the roof plate. The neural crest population is released into the mesenchyme at the same time, and the skin also fuses, covering the whole.
