Early Development and the Organogenic Period

by Peter Ward, PhD

Development of a new embryo begins moments after fertilization. A highly complex process, it ensures the initial differentiation of cells required to give rise to more specialized tissues. These cells are divided into layers called the ectoderm, mesoderm, and endoderm, each respectively giving rise to the brain and spinal cord, the musculoskeletal system, and the gastrointestinal tract, among many others.

In this course, the student will be introduced to the stages of development from fertilization to the trilaminar embryo, as well as the derivatives of each embryonic layer.

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.

Good, but lacks interactivity (mainly the pointer to find the structures)
By Victor Miguel M. on 20. May 2021 for Early Development and the Organogenic Period

Its a really good course, but I got lost finding what structure they were talking about, because there was no pointer.

 
Love Lecturio

Thank you!
By Carol W. on 26. February 2021 for Early Development and the Organogenic Period

I am enjoying watching the words in Spanish and am re-learning with my limitedly available time! Plus, doing the questions afterward helps. Thank you to Dr. Ward, also, for his clear lectures!

 
very confusing
By Cortland K. on 02. February 2021 for Gastrulation and the Trilaminar Embryo

This needs to be slowed down and more visual than it is.
