“Embryology is tough: it involves a lot of imagination and can be difficult to visualize. After taking this course, I never had difficulty with the topic again, though, and barely had to review my notes before writing the exam. Once this subject is taught by Professor Ward, it sticks with you forever!”

FAQs

What is embryology?

Embryology is the branch of biology that focuses on the study of embryos and their development. In the medical field, this branch focuses on the development of human embryos, with the objective of finding the root causes of congenital abnormalities.

How does embryology provide evidence for evolution?

By studying the development of different species’ embryos (comparative embryology), evolutionary similarities between species can be brought to light. This can help with drawing conclusions about the possible common ancestors of different species. Some of these similarities may only occur in the embryonic stage and disappear after birth.

What is comparative embryology?

Comparative embryology investigates the differences and similarities between embryos of different species. It can draw conclusions about how different species have developed as well as how they are related to each other.

How to study for embryology

The most effective way to succeed in your embryology class is to combine different learning modalities:

First, deep-dive into the topics with video lessons hosted by competent educators followed by Lecturio’s comprehensive Concept Pages. Next, apply what you’ve learned in practical situations by answering clinical case questions in the Qbank.

Lastly, make sure you retain information long-term by regularly reviewing your  knowledge with Spaced-Repetition quizzes.
