When does the buccopharyngeal membrane rupture? 24 days
When does the facial primordia appear? 4th week
What forms the facial primordia? Proliferation of underlying mesoderm
The frontal prominence forms what structures? Forehead, dorsum, and apex of nose
The two maxillary processes form what structures? Cheeks, lateral parts of upper lip and jaw, and secondary palate
What facial primordia forms the lower face, jaw and lip? Mandibular process of the 1st branchial arch
Nasal placodes appear in the 4th week from _____. surface ectoderm
The alae of the nose arise from ____. lateral nasal swellings
The medial nasal swellings form what structures? Philtrum of upper lip, middle part of maxilla (four incisors), and entire primary palate
