- the neural tube becomes the embryonic nervous system;
- muscle tissue is still developing rapidly.
The tiny heart regularly counts about 140 beats per minute.

the size of the heart of a living being, the faster it beats. therefore
such a “pulse” in the embryo is in the order of things. Determine the heartbeat
