neural tube
The term neural tube refers to an embryologic structure that develops as a result of the proliferation of cells in the neural plate to form a neural fold on each of its margins. As the neural groove between the folds deepens the neural folds fuse dorsally to form the neural tube ( Carpenter-1983 ).
