Early development and the organogenic period

by Peter Ward, PhD
(9)

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 become every tissue within the human body.

You will 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 creates 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.
