Here are the PowerPoints for our Oral Embryology lectures. I did these lectures for a few years, but for the past couple years, Dr. Koutlas has been doing them – so that’s why the slides look like they came from two different people.
I’m making some minor edits to Dr. Koutlas’ PowerPoints, as I mentioned today – just changing the slide order and deleting a few things just so that I can comfortably relate the material to you. I’m posting both versions of the PowerPoints below – but please note that the exam questions will come only from the new PowerPoints (the ones we use in class). Let me know if you have any questions.
New PowerPoints (for class)
- Embryology part 1 (fertilization through folding) ppt | pdf
- Embryology part 2 (pharyngeal arches) ppt | pdf
- Embryology part 3 (head, face, oral cavity) ppt | pdf
Old PowerPoints (optional reading; not required)
The scores for exam 3 are posted on Canvas. You guys did really, really well – the mean was 49 (out of a total of 52 points)!
Here’s an interactive drawing I made that shows what happens to female germ cells over time. I think it’s kind of helpful to see the numbers (and stages) of the germ cells mapped out by age – it gives you a visual sense of what happens throughout life.
I can’t post the drawing on our website because of wordpress limitations – but I was able to post it on my Pathology Student website. Yay!
In addition to the Exam 3 Review Kahoot we did in class yesterday, there are now separate Kahoots for each system on exam 3. Here they are (they’re also on our Kahoots page):
Exam 3 review
Male reproductive system
Female reproductive system
Pancreas, liver, and gallbladder
Here’s a simple little self-study thing I put together on the nephron. It just asks you to name stuff, and recall what things look like – let me know if you think it’s useful.
I made a couple new Kahoots for you to go through if you want: one on the GI system and one on pancreas, liver, and gallbladder. I also put all our crosswords and all our Kahoots into two new pages that you can access from the menu bar above. That way you won’t have to hunt through back posts if you want to use them.
Here are a couple more crosswords: one on the urinary system and one on the respiratory system.
Thought I’d share a drawing with you guys in case it helps. It’s a better version of the one I made in class showing how the wall of the respiratory passageways changes as you go from bronchi to alveoli. There are three versions, so you can use it fully labeled, partially labeled, or unlabeled, however it suits you best. Let me know if you find it useful – if so, I’ll make more 🙂
Labeled with passageways only:
When we talked about the GI tract, I mentioned that when I was first learning this stuff as a student, I got hung up on trying to tell apart stomach and small intestine. They both have glands at the bottom and other structures (pits in the stomach, villi in the small intestine) on top…and I had a hard time visualizing how they were different.
So I made a short video explaining the difference. I think it’s easier to understand if you can see someone drawing on the pictures. So here it is – I hope if some of you had the same problem that this will solve it!
Here is a new crossword on the Pancreas, Liver, and Gallbladder.
