However, it should be realized that the body does not possess means for obtaining a complete picture of the environment. Sense organs are limited in their scope and they are incapable of detecting some 29 30 BIOLOGICAL BACKGROUND TO EDUCATION aspects of the environment.

The stimulation of nerves of sensation causes nerve impulses to be transmitted to nerve centres, where they are interpreted and correlated.

The internal blood vessels responsible for returning blood to the foetal heart, by-passing the liver in the process, also become obliterated. The most immediate circulatory change is the closure of the hole between the atria of the heart, which, when functional, allows the foetal blood on both sides of the heart to mix. Within minutes, this hole, the foramen ovale, is closed by a valve forced against the gap by rising blood pressure in the left atrium. This prevents the mixing of deoxygenated blood, intended for the lungs, with oxygenated blood freshly returned from the lungs.

Among the earliest discernible features is a groove which forms the neural tube, from which the nervous system develops.

The regular segmentation of the body by the somites becomes greatly obscured when the head and limbs develop.
