new term request: collar nerve cord #692
Please see this paper:
"Miyamoto and Wada found that the endoderm of the enteropneust stomochord and the roof of the buccal cavity are sources of Hedgehog signals that evidently induce and pattern the collar nerve cord. This parallels Hedgehog signalling from the notochord to the nascent neural tube during vertebrate development. Their data could be interpreted to mean that dorsoventral inversion did not take place during the enteropneust-to-vertebrate transition, that the stomochord is homologous to a notochord, and that the collar cord corresponds to at least part of the vertebrate CNS."
Tentative definition (from this paper):
