3b). DEVELOPMENT OF THE MUSCULOSKELETAL SYSTEM M e s o d e r m a l somites By the end of the third week following fertilization the paraxial mesoderm begins to become divided up into mesodermal somites which are easily recognizable during the fourth and fifth weeks (Fig. 3c). Eventually some 44 pairs of somites develop, although not all are present at the same time; however the paraxial mesoderm at the cranial end of the embryo remains unsegmented. There are 4 occipital somites, followed by 8 cervical, 12 thoracic, 5 lumbar, 5 sacral and 8 - 1 0 coccygeal somites.

Nevertheless, it is often necessary to identify and manipulate these deeper structures through the skin, and also to test their function, effectiveness and efficiency. To do this the examiner relies heavily on sensory information provided by his or her own skin, particularly that of the digits and hands. Indeed, the skin of this region is so richly endowed with sensory nerve endings that it allows objects to be identified by touch alone, culminating in the ability of the blind to read with their fingers.

The dermis contains the numerous blood vessels and lymphatic channels, nerves and sensory nerve endings as well as a small amount of fat. In addition to these it also contains hair follicles, sweat and sebaceous glands, and smooth muscle (arrectores pilorum). The deep surface of the dermis is invaginated by projections of subcutaneous connective tissue, which serve partly for the entrance of the nerves and blood vessels into the skin (see Fig. 2b). Subcutaneous connective tissue This is a layer of loosely arranged connective tissue containing fat and some elastic fibres.
