Elegí esta calificación porque explicó de forma sensilla de entener y recordar lo básico del desarrollo y patologias de los arcos faríngeos, ahora queda ib¿vestigar más sobre dicha información. Me gustó que pone la variedad y cantidad de imagenes que proyecta justo en el momento exacto que explica, eso hace más entendible la conferencia. Recomendaría este vídeos a mis compañeros de facultad.
