    Chorion
  20. An extenstion of the blood vesels of the chronion that brings embryotic circulation to the placenta
    Chorionic villi
  21. What is the length of time period for the embryotic phase of developement
    fertilization to end of 8th week of gestation
  22. What are the primary germ layers
    • 3 layers of specialized cells of the embryo
    • Endoderm
    • mesoderm
    • ectoderm
  23. What structures would be derived from the mesoderm
    • Forms most of the structures between the endo and ectoderm
    • dermis of skin
    • skeletal muscle
    • bones
    • kidneys
    • gonads
    • many glands of the body
    • components of the circulatory system
  24. What is the process of the primary germ layers developing into many kinds of tissue
    Histogenesis
  25. How many stages of labor are there
