My medical dictionary relates the following:
Neurapophysis (nu ra POF i sis): the structure forming either side of the
neural arch; also the part supposedly homologous with this structure in a
so-called cranial vertebra.
Apophysis (ah POF i sis): any outgrowth or swelling, especially a bony
outgrowth that has never been entirely separated from the bone of which it
forms a part, such as a process, tubercle, or tuberosity.
