Development of Musculoskeletal System and Skin

by Peter Ward, PhD

The limbs are the superior and inferior extensions of the trunk. They enable humans to grasp and use tools as well as traverse the environment by reaching, climbing, walking, or running. The development of the limbs is a key part in the development of the musculoskeletal system as a whole. The development of the skin is just as complex and intricate.

In this course, the student will be introduced to the development of the upper and lower limbs, including the development of their bony and muscular components, as well as of the skin and its associated structures, such as the sweat glands, hair, nails, and teeth.

For optimal comprehension, the student will be required to have preliminary knowledge of molecular and cellular biology and biochemistry, with an emphasis on cell division and gene expression.

3D illustrious
By snehalkumar p. on 24. March 2024 for Development of Musculoskeletal System and Skin

Teaching embryology without 3D illustrations is a crime … at least on such a big platform.. Many of the lectures seems hurried just for the sake of finishing within 10 min .

The explanations are really clear, I can easily imagine the process. One of the best things are the pictures used on the slides.
