Amazing lectures!
By Lina H. on 25. October 2020 for Development of the Nervous System, Head, and Neck

I truly appreciate Dr. Ward's efforts on making these lectures, guiding me through development of multi organ systems. Highly recommended!

 
it is amazing
By Mohamed H. on 24. October 2020 for Development of the Nervous System, Head, and Neck

it covers most of the embryology of nervous system. I think it will be really perfect if there are more details on the development of brain itself, specifically cerebellum and midbrain. Another thing to be noted, I cant find the development of spinal cord and it is a part of nervous system. In the end, thank you d.Ward for those really amazing lectures

super tough course. I'll definitely come back to it and view it again. These videos are a little bit fast paced for me
