Hindbrain segmentation. SEM, dorsal view of a ferret embryo at embryonic day 14 in which the roof of the hind- and mid-brain regions was removed prior to processing. The segmental organization of the hindbrain is structurally evident by the presence of transverse inter-rhombomeric sulci. Successive rhombomeres are indicated as r1, r2, r3, etc. Courtesy of C.
