Morphostatic computational models. The three morphostatic computational models studied. Each model begins with the inductive mechanism of lateral inhibition run until a fixed point. Model 1 then runs differential adhesion. Model 3 follows lateral inhibition with the morphogenetic mechanisms of differential adhesion and cell death running together (interlaced in time). In the embryo, this is equivalent to the mechanisms running simultaneously.
