The program describes the development and malformations of the human embryo.
The introduction defines important basic terms of embryology, gives a short overview of the embryonic stages, explains the structure of the program and outlines the operating instructions.
The atlas shows pictures of the 3D reconstructions created by Prof. E. Blechschmidt. You can hover your mouse over different structures, which are then highlighted with a colour of choice. At the same time, a text window appears with the corresponding term. For each atlas picture, you can generate a list of all the identified structures using the appropriate control button. A view of different organ systems from the same embryo can also be obtained (vessels, nerves, etc.). In the Information Mode, known structures are identified. You can use the Test Mode to self-test your knowledge about the selected structures.
