It's only been the first week of class, and I can't get past gastrulation! :eek: I'm really having a tough time visualizing what exactly is happening. :(

If anyone has any tips, websites or book suggestions (besides High-Yield, Langman's and the Netter's atlas) I'd really appreciate it. This class is going to kick my butt otherwise, and I'd much rather give my time to anatomy and histo...

I tried looking for something along the lines of an embryology "flow chart," but was unable to find anything. I even got the school bookstore to look for me. :( I ended up making my own on a posterboard, but it took me the better part of a weekend.

Here are some websites that may be helpful.

Larsen website

embryology animations

multi-dimensional embryo

They aren't overly thorough, but maybe they'll be helpful in some way.

Hi Lara,

One of your classmates here. Have you tried Dr. Marino's online lectures on Blackboard? I found them pretty helpful.

See if you can get your hands on a copy of Moore's "The Developing Human." I was having the same problem over here at Drexel until I saw the figures in this book and it all made perfect sense. All the best.

it has pics and all bullets. it's concise and easy to read.

I like the BRS, too, but we are required to know more specific info than it covers so I can't use it alone. :(

ahh, well do the prof's notes cover the rest of the details?

my embryo class is a cram course combined with a cram anatomy course (all done in 7 weeks). it's faster than crap through a goose. (what are the 4 birds in the thorax? esaphagoose, thoracic duck, azygoose vein, vagoose)

Try out simbryo at www.simbryo.com

I think you can get it on CD-ROM with Langman's embryology as well.

thanks chris for posting simbryo. if anyone's ever tried it and has any critique, i'd love to hear it. thanks.

ps--it will be bundled with the new edition of Langman's (9th) coming out this Spring. If you have to have it now, you can ask your institution to buy a site license (too expensive for us med students). v2 is on it's way.
