The space remainform the trophoectoderm which eventually forms ing is the yolk sac (see Fig. 12d). the fetal membranes. The inner cell mass forms the embryonic cells, and may also contribute to the extra-embryonic membranes. Prochordal plate In a localized area in the roof of the yolk sac the prochordal plate is formed.

Within the pectoral girdle the clavicle is the anterior preaxial bone and the scapula, with the exception of the coracoid process (which is also an anterior bone), is the posterior postaxial bone. The distinction with respect to the coracoid process is that phylogenetically it is a separate bone; its fusion with the scapula is secondary. Consequently, 46 ANATOMY AND HUMAN MOVEMENT muscles arising from the clavicle or coracoid process belong to the preaxial group, and are therefore supplied by preaxial branches of the brachial plexus.

The secretions of the glands include some disintegration products of the gland cells (apocrine secretions). The odour associated with these glands is not from the secretion itself, but is due to bacterial invasion and contamination from the skin. Pigment granules associated with axillary glands produce a slight coloration of the secretion. The apocrine glands vary with sexual development, enlarging at puberty. In females they show cyclical changes associated with the menstrual cycle. The glands which open at the margins of the eyelid (ciliary glands) are modified, uncoiled Sweat glands These have a wide distribution throughout the body (Fig.
