Cranial neural crest
Latin crista neuralis cranialis
Code TE E5.

The cranial neural crest is a form of neural crest.[1]

The cranial neural crest arises in the anterior and populates the face and the pharyngeal arches giving rise to bones, cartilage, nerves and connective tissue.[2] The endocranium and facial bones of the skull are ultimately derived from crest cells.
