neuroectoderm

 [noor″o-ek´to-derm]
the portion of the ectoderm of the early embryo which gives rise to the central and peripheral nervous systems, including some glial cells. adj., adj neuroectoder´mal.

(nū'rō-ek'tō-derm),
That central region of the early embryonic ectoderm that on further development forms the brain and spinal cord, and the neural crest cells that become the nerve cells and neurilemma or Schwann cells of the peripheral nervous system.

During embryogenesis the neuroectoderm divides to give rise to neuroepithelium which further divides into neuroblast, the spongioblast and the primitive ependymocytes.
The earlier growing of the primitive mesoderm than the neuroectoderm results in a relative shortening of the spinal cord and more rapid growth of vertebral column and duramater (Vettivel, 1991).
In mammals, each adrenal gland is composed by two distinct steroidogenic structures: the cortex, whose embryological origin is the mesoderm and the medulla with embryological origin from the neuroectoderm. Each part of adrenal gland has different cell types: cells producing sexual steroid hormones, glucocorticoids and mineralocorticoids are present in the cortex, and chromaffin cells, which are producers of catecholamine and neuropeptides are present in medullar region (Hincu et al., 2006; Kempna and Fluck, 2008; Chang et al., 2011; Parker et al., 2011; Quinn et al., 2013; Qiu et al., 2013).

IP is a rare genodermatosis characterized by abnormalities of the tissues and organs derived from the ectoderm and neuroectoderm. It is a type of ectodermal dysplasia that involves the skin, and sometimes other tissues.

As the eyes are the mirror of the soul, the skin may be reflection at the surface from the depths of our mind; skin and brain are two polar ends embryonic development, coming from the same neuroectoderm.
