neural plate A strip of ectoderm, above the notochord, that lies along the central axis of the early embryos (see gastrula) of chordates and develops into the central nervous system. The neural plate folds and forms the neural tube; this process is called neurulation. During the stage when the neural tube is forming the embryo is known as a neurula.
