Structures arising from the neural tube and neural crest cells.
Roof plate.
Floor plate.
Basal plates.
Alar plates.
Intermediate plate.
Sulcus limitans.
Gray matter formation.
Dorsal, intermediolateral, and ventral horn formation.
Formation of the spinal tracts.
Formation of the spinal nerves.
Autonomic Nervous System formation.
White ramus and gray ramus formation.
Parasympathetic system formation.
Origin of the chromaffin cells, supra-renal formation, etc.
Origin of the lining of the central canal.

In this video we will learn about :

1. Structure of spinal cord. 

2. Formation of white and grey matter.
