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.

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!

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.
