In order to better understand and simulate early embryo morphogenesis, it is crucial to determine cell rheology and the intra- and inter-cellular remodelling process. The quantification of cell viscoelasticity is by no means trivial, and in fact, embryo development has been analysed resorting to a tissue that behaves either as pure fluid [1] or as an elastic solid with an active and passive response [2]. We here demonstrate that in fact the two aspects, cell remodelling and the apparent cell vis...
