Introduction

Foundsmall.jpg
Human development is one of the most exciting topics to study not only as a medical student, but also for our fundamental understanding of the human body. It is important at this stage of your studies to have a broad understanding of the timing of events in human development, so that you can understand normal development, organ development and when things go wrong (abnormal development). Many of the concepts introduced broadly today will be covered in detail in Beginnings, Growth and Development (BGDA).


From this Early zygote.jpg to this Newborn.jpg in 9 months

This is sometimes not an easy topic to study with many very specific terms, dynamic processes and transient structures.

New terms or concepts that you don't understand?

Use the Glossary link (at the bottom of each page), Terms list (at the bottom of some pages) or search window (on the top of each page).

Embryology textbooks  
These two textbooks will be used in the later BGD component of your course. They contain far more detail than you currently will require for this development overview class, but nothing is stopping you....

As an introduction try the chapter in The Developing Human - Introduction to the Developing Human

The Developing Human: Clinically Oriented Embryology (10th edn) 
The Developing Human, 10th edn.jpg

UNSW Students have online access to the current 10th edn. through the UNSW Library subscription (with student Zpass log-in).

Keep coming back to embryology (and this site) as you progress through your studies and it will eventually make more sense!

Objectives

  1. General understanding of the early events of human development.
  2. Understand the key divisions, events and timecourse of human development.
  3. Understand the concept of mixed embryonic origins of different tissues and organs.
  4. General understanding of the term “critical periods” of development.
