Early Development and the Organogenic Period

by Peter Ward, PhD

This course follows how a single-celled organism called a zygote passes through several developmental stages and creates a series of germ cell layers that will be transformed to create every type of tissue within the human body.

After completion of this course, you will be able to outline how a single-celled zygote transitions into the morula, blastocyst, bilaminar embryo, and trilaminar embryo and how the three germ cell layers (ectoderm, mesoderm, and endoderm) subdivide and create distinctive tissues throughout the body. Furthermore, you will identify various clinical or pathologic conditions can arise during these processes.

This course is directed toward health science and medical students. Any student studying embryology as part of their education will find these videos helpful.

Peter Ward, PhD

Peter J. Ward, Ph.D. has been teaching embryology, anatomy, histology, and neuroscience since 2005. He attended Carnegie Mellon University and later earned a Ph.D. in medical anatomy education from Purdue University. Dr. Ward enjoys finding ways to simplify the complex processes involved in human development and highlights the clinically-important aspects of embryology. Throughout these lectures, Dr. Ward shows how embryonic structures morph into the mature organs and other structures of the human body.

MA SHA ALLAH.. It was great and easy to understand I am glad

 
Great!
By William S. on 06. December 2019 for Gastrulation and the Trilaminar Embryo

One of the better lectures for this complicated subject. Images and slides are well illustrated.

 
Less content
By Priya V. on 20. October 2019 for Early Development and the Organogenic Period

Content is very less otherwise teaching is nice but in all the subjects content is very less.

 
Clear classes
By Dianita Z. on 03. October 2019 for Early Development and the Organogenic Period

Y chose 5 stars because the classes are really clear and well explained... the way the teacher explains the concepts makes it easier to study. Thanks
