ABSTRACT
The article examines the role that neural crest cells play in embryonic development. The authors compare and contrast how these cells function in the craniofacial region, where they form osteoblasts, chondroblasts and odontoblats, to the trunk, where they develop into the peripheral nervous system, melanocytes and glandular structures. They suggest that the behavior of neural crest cells in the craniofacial region is similar to that of mesodermal tissue. They focus their research on the interactions between extracellular matrix components and cranial neural crest cells while differentiation occurs among craniofacial skeletal elements.
