By Mariya F. on 13. November 2017 for Neural Tube Defects – Neurulation

The lecture is comprehensive and easy to understand even if you have a very basic knowledge in biology & medicine.

By krissy m. on 22. October 2017 for Neural Tube Defects – Neurulation

Awesome lecture very informative and concise. I appreciated the simple explanations.

Great summary!
By Saif K. on 27. September 2017 for Embryo Folding and Regionalisation of the Brain – Neurulation

Fantastic summary of the regionalisation of the brain. Clear and to the point without any waffle. Diagrams shown also only detail what is absolutely necessary unlike many developmental biology textbooks which can overload you with information. The only gripe that I possibly have is that a couple of the signalling molecules involved in the patterning of the brain / spinal cord should be mentioned in this lecture. Note: If you are a new user I would suggest not "jumping around" various lectures within the early development category (unless you have substantial prior knowledge).

Wonderfully Integrated concepts
By Amanda C. on 24. September 2017 for Spermatogenesis and Oogenesis: Introduction

Combined the general ideas and main processes into a beautiful linked picture allowing for actual and thorough understanding of the material
