Suggested Use

This site provides a detailed summary of human development from fertilization to birth. I like that the figures show the actual size of the embryo/fetus, but wish the figures of the enlarged embryo/fetus were a bit larger. The visible embryo is a good visual tool to show the progression of development. I plan to use it as a supplement in anatomy and physiolgy for my undergraduate course.

I use this resource as part of a Development Lab for sophomore nursing A&P II students.  The images are very helpful giving a better understanding of the events at various stages of human development.  I ask questions to accompany the exercise.

Clear demostration for all stages of human embryo from fertilization through 14 weeks. The unique developmental characteristics for each stages are listed. it is benficial for the medical community as well as to students who are considered a new learner about development. In addition, other supportive materials to development are there in the website which enriches the knowledge of human's development.

students are amazed how humans grow and develop in the uterus. This is a great visual.
