  • Embryology History Explore the rich history of sensory research. In particular look through the available images that may complement the text. Any of this material can be used, you should cite the original paper or textbook. Gray | 1921 Bailey and Miller

Hey so what organ did everyone decide on heart or liver. I vote for the Liver

Hi Team! I would first like to apologize for not coming on Wednesday on our practical. So I am sorry one more time for that. I am coming to practicals this Wednesday so we can discuss our topics. Just to ask what happen on Wednesday in regards of our group project? So we need to decide between heart or liver to write our project? If that is so...I vote for the heart then:)

Hey kidlings, just to let you know, I'm going to be looking through my path/grey's anatomy textbooks for anything i can possibly find. I think we should start with a little intro of what is the normal development and then have some abnormalities that can stem from that? Thoughts? --Z3374173 19:17, 21 August 2012 (EST)

Hey Team, some ideas for the focus of our topic. 1. a basic overview of the development of the eye, 2. divide the eye up into it regions of development and look at the abnormalities that can occur, including the factors which make it abnormal: congenital or defect; percentage of occurance in society and/or likely hood aquiring it; processes of the abnormal development (how abnormaility occurs); living with the abnormality; any treatments and/or prevntions for the abnormality. --Z3220343 19:31, 21 August 2012 (EST)

Textbook: The Developing Human Chapter 20 [3] --Z3220343 10:14, 22 August 2012 (EST)

Looking through textbooks, I have found Retinoblastoma which is a tumor usually in the posterior retina. It says it can occur in 2 year olds but also can occur at birth, so that could be a developmental one. I found that in my pathology textbook, Others i found could be Horner's syndrome, that apparently can start developing in fetal development. I'll go through my mums old midwifery textbooks too. Anyone else find anything?--Z3374173 16:49, 26 August 2012 (EST)

Hey so i was looking through the textbook and i found a list of defects of the retina. further down it also talks about congenital glaucoma. [4] i found this while surfing pubmed may be of some use?[5] i had heard of a genetic disorder in which if both parents are carriers the baby has 25% chance being born blind. i think this was the disorder if not, it still could be interesting for our assignment [6][7][8]--Z3220343 21:09, 28 August 2012 (EST)

I think I shall do Horner's Syndrome. [9]--Z3374173 11:29, 29 August 2012 (EST)

Hi team :D I just found an article that talks about all the current knowledge on conditions related to abnormal visual development in infants. In the article, they have aslo included prevalence, risk factors and mechanisms that are involved with the development of these conditions. I think it would be quite useful to our own topic. Just letting everyone know, i will be doing congenital cataracts. [10]--Z3331330 12:36, 29 August 2012 (EST)

Heres another article description of the normal visual development, each component of the visual system is included and explained very clearly, this would be useful for our general overview on the development of the eye. In particular, the retina development is also mentioned in the article which we can make use of when comparing our disorder with the normal development. [11]--Z3331330 12:47, 29 August 2012 (EST)

Hey Guys, After trawlling through stacks of info on Horner's syndrome I'm not satisfied with the amount of info there is so I'm going to change it up and try Chorioretinal Scars. I can find more information and really hope this comes together!! --Z3374173 21:34, 10 September 2012 (EST)
