The cardiovascular system is the first system to develop and function in the human embryo, and at week four of prenatal development, the heart begins to beat. At the beginning of stage nine (middle of week three) we see the functional folding of the neural plate and development of the neural tube give rise to the differentiation of the germ layers into products that eventually form the fully functional embryonic heart. Advances in technology, ‘coupled with the use of suitable animal models’ has allowed the evolution of our understanding of embryological cardiac developmental, and allows us to observe how it has stemmed from the more “classical accounts”.
