Embryonic Development and Human Physiology
Ten fingers, ten toes, two perfect little ears, such a cute little nose, and oh, just look at those eyes! Who among us hasn't marveled at a new born baby - and just wait until one day when the baby is yours! To some it is a miracle (and it may be considered so), but our understanding of the mechanisms of embryonic development, those transformations that take place from the moment sperm meets eggs until those first precious breaths, is among the most surprising and marvelous phenomenon in all the universe.
And equally marvelous, the baby is not just born 'so perfect' in form, but everyhing works (most of the time): heart beats, lungs breath, muscles move, neurons fire, and brains learn.
Study Guides to help prepare students for quizzes and exams.
Students should treat these guides as practice quizzes/tests: Review your notes and other materials from class, then take a break. After a while, come back to these study guides and, without reviewing or looking at your notes
respond as fully as possible in writing
to define each vocabulary word, and answer each short-answer objective. If you don't know an answer, or are unsure, mark it as as a reminder of such to yourself, and then continue without reviewing your notes. When you have worked through the entire study guide, then go back to your notes and check your work. Your next round of studies should focus on what you didn't know or were unsure of. Repeat as time allows!14 Meiosis Fertilization and Heredity16 Developmental Concepts and Human Development17 Human Reproductive Systems18 Endocrine Nervous and Muscular Systems
