This course follows on from the preceding course, showing you how germs cells (oocytes and spermatozoa) form inside the ovaries and testes. Find out how fertilization occurs and how the newly-formed embryo implants into the uterus. Returning to early development, you are then reminded how the placenta and fetal membranes develop. The course ends with a chronological review of the embryonic period and a short summary of events that occur during this time, ending with the birth.
You will soon be able to competently outline the similarities and differences between oocytes and spermatozoa, explain how the two cell types combine to produce a genetically distinct zygote, and tell the examiners how the trophoblast develops to surround and protect the embryo. Furthermore, this course also covers twinning at various stages of development which results in distinctive fetal membranes surrounding the developing embryos.
Peter Ward, Ph.D., will help you identify various clinical or pathologic conditions that can arise during these processes.
