A personal message from Dr Mark Hill (May 2020)  
Mark Hill.jpg
I have decided to take early retirement in September 2020. During the many years online I have received wonderful feedback from many readers, researchers and students interested in human embryology. I especially thank my research collaborators and contributors to the site. The good news is Embryology will remain online and I will continue my association with UNSW Australia. I look forward to updating and including the many exciting new discoveries in Embryology!

This historic 1954 textbook by John P. Zubek and P. A. Solberg describes human development.

Pages where the terms "Historic" (textbooks, papers, people, recommendations) appear on this site, and sections within pages where this disclaimer appears, indicate that the content and scientific understanding are specific to the time of publication. This means that while some scientific descriptions are still accurate, the terminology and interpretation of the developmental mechanisms reflect the understanding at the time of original publication and those of the preceding periods, these terms, interpretations and recommendations may not reflect our current scientific understanding.     (More?

Preface

This book grew out of the need for a text that would cover the entire age span from conception to old age, devoting about the same amount of space to each period of life. In the past decade, interest has grown in psychological and physiological studies of maturity and old age. Research in this area has been vigorous. We have attempted to bring this material — still scattered throughout various journals — into line with the more extensive body of knowledge on behavioral development during childhood and adolescence and in this way to provide a continuous picture of human development and subsequent decline. For the sake of clarity Ave have used a longitudinal approach consistently, tracing an aspect of behavior from its genesis in the prenatal or early postnatal stages through adulthood to old age.

Since we believe that no thorough understanding of human development can be achieved without a regard for phylogenetic changes as we ascend the scale from the lowest invertebrates to man, we have begun most chapters with a brief description of the phylogenetic aspects of sensory processes, learning, emotions, etc., following this with ontogenetic changes in the various behavioral areas. Discussions on phylogenesis are brief, however, and, at the discretion of the teacher may easily be omitted without disruption of the continuity of the ontogenetic sequence.

The experimental literature on psychological development during childhood and adolescence is extensive, and several excellent texts are already available for these periods. We have therefore been highly selective in our treatment of early life, choosing only the more important studies, especially those which give a clear picture of behavior at the various age levels. This principle of selection is particularly evident in chapters dealing with motor processes, language, and intelligence, as well as emotional, social, and personality development. Throughout the various chapters, however, we have cited references to review articles and books which amplify a specific topic. Our treatment of the literature covering maturity and old age is more exhaustive, since many of these studies have not yet been included in any textbook.

The general orientation of this book is physiological. In the early chapters we have given a fairly extensive treatment of age changes in the neural and glandular systems, for example. These body systems were singled out for study because we believe that in the later years many of the behavioral changes in sensory and motor processes, in interests, and in learning, memory, and other intellectual functions are to some degree manifestations of structural and functional changes of these systems.

We are indebted to the many authors and publishers whose publications contributed material to this book. This debt has been acknowledged on appropriate pages. We also wish to express our appreciation to Mrs. J. Downer and to Mrs. L. Rubin, who helped with the typing; to Mr. C. Hodge, for assistance with the illustrations; and to the Department of Psychology of McGill University, for financial aid covering a part of the clerical work.
