Books and publications on the developing human embryo (especially the brain) are less numerous than those on other specimens, possibly because of the limitation of continuous stages and achieving serial sections of high quality. Furthermore, methods are restricted (ie, only high-quality histological as well as immunohistochemical results can be used to describe the human stages), and modern cell biological techniques are mostly restricted.
