Dear All,

I am searching for references about the morphology (in transversal 
cross-section) of the zebrafih hindbrain. More precisely about the 
"evagination" of the hindbrain. Indeed, xenopus hindbrain for 
instance develops more or less as a tube and is U-shaped, 
whereas zebrafish rhombomeres "evaginate" at the end of 
somitogenesis and that give rise to  a M-shaped structure. I found 
a lot of references, and good reviews about antero-posterior 
segmentation but nothing about dorso-ventral morphology.  

Thanks in advance,
