Description This FlashTM animation depicts development of the atrioventricular canal into the bicuspid and tricuspid valves. For context it begins with a ventral view of the two chambered heart. Clicking causes the surface to open revealing a cross section through the primitive ventricle. Next the animation zooms in to show the atrioventricular canal developing endocardial cushions and separating into the right and left atrioventricular orifices. From there the perspective shifts to show a cross section through the left orifice and depicts a stylized view of the development of an AV valve. The animation then shifts back to show a ventral view of the bicuspid and tricuspid valves, and ends with corpuscles pouring through the valves as they open and close.
