review of Peter Ward and embryology lectures
By moose h. on 21. March 2019 for Ectoderm Derivatives and Neurulation

This video, with the previous two videos are amazing. Taking embryology in med school was like greek or hebrew. Your teaching style is very helpful to dissect the processes into understandable segments. Our professor taught by day of development so there was lots of jumping around. I like the discussion of one layer from flat layer to cells to folding, to closure, etc. Very well done. Moose Henderson, PhD
