Transcript of Human Embryology

Human Embryo
The zygote cell from fetilization is now multicellular and diploid. It is known as an embryo.
It is supported by the mother by an umbilical cord and the extra embryonic membranes as morphogenesis takes place.

Timeline of
Human Baby

Sperm meets the egg and fertilizes it.
Zygote is formed, and Metiosis occurs.
Cleavage of cells begins to divide zygote further.
Develops from Hypoblasts/Extraembryonic Mesoderm
Surrounds the yolk
Modifies yolk lipids into lipoproteins
Provides nourishment required for Embryonic growth
Develops from Epiblasts/Extraembryonic Mesoderm
Surrounds Embyro in fluid filled sac which protects the Embryo from:
- Shock Absorption
- Temperature Fluctuations
- Prevents Extreme Dryness
Develops from Trophoblasts/Extramembryonic Mesoderm
Surrounds Embryo
Outermost Membrane
Chorion + Allantois = gas and nutrient exchange
Yolk Sac
Develops from Embryonic Hindgut
Out pocket of hindgut
Functions as waste removal (removes embryonic wastes produced by embyro)
Known as the "Primitive Bladder"

While the oocyte is moving through the fallopian tube, cleavage begins to take place while remaining the same volume
When it reaches 16-32 cells it is referred to as a morula and the hollow inner space known as the blastocyst cavity, begins filling with liquid.
During morulation the blastomeres also seperate the inner cells(embryoblast) and outer cells(trophoblast) leading to the partiton of the cells

The blastocyst forms five days after conception and is made up of an inner cell mass (ICM) and Blastocoel on the inside, and an outer epithelial layer with trophoblasts on the outside
The ICM will lead to the three germ layers while the trophoblasts will become the extra embryonic membranes
Formation of the two layer, Epiblast and Hypoblast
Cells are pluripotent
Attaches to endouterine wall on 6th day
Time of Major Cell Reorganization
Cells begin to differentiate into different organs and germ layers
Cell migration is done primarily through cells being seperated by the primitave node and primitave streak seperating the embryo into 3 distinct germ layers
At 18 days neurogenesis begins and the neural plate forms.
At 3 weeks the neural tube is formed which later foms into the spinal cord and the brain.
The forebrain, midbrain and hindbrain are formed which are the three main sections of the brain ( the brain is the first organ to form)
By 27 days the anterior and posterior neuropores close, covering the neural tube
Organs have formed and continue to develop from 8 weeks until delivery
Limbs and organs begin to function while the fetus is being supported by the mother until birth
Morphogenesis is the stage where organs and body parts begin to fully develop
It takes place while the baby is still an embryo and is in the process of becoming a fetus
Made up of cells that entered the primitave streak first.
Made up of cells that entered the primitave streak later on
Made up of cells that remained on the surface of the embryo and did not enter the primitave streak
