How Much Do You Know About Embryology? Trivia Quiz - Quiz

How much do you know about embryology? Do you suppose you know enough to pass this quiz? Embryology is the study of the formation and development of an embryo and fetus. It is the ball of splitting cells that results after fertilization is labeled an embryo for eight weeks and from nine weeks after conception. It is the term used as a “fetus. ” This quiz will determine whether or not you know about embryology.


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 
    Triploblastic
    • A. 

      A condition of the blastula in which there are three primary germ layers: the ectoderm, mesoderm, and endoderm. The germ layers form during gastrulation of the blastula.

    • B. 

      A technique that is used to show how a cell or tissue moves and what it will become during normal development. Was developed by Walter Vogt as a means by which to trace the development of specific regions of the early embryo.

    • C. 

      Refers to the initiation or cause of a change or process, such as the production of a specific morphogenetic effect in the developing embryo.

    • D. 

      (a kind of sustentacular cell) is a 'nurse' cell of the testes that is part of a seminiferous tubule. They nurture the developing sperm cells during spermatogenesis. It is activated by follicle-stimulating hormone and has FSH-receptor on its membranes

    • E. 

      A 7 hr period after sperm is ejaculated into the vagina, a glycoprotein coat and seminal proteins are removed from the surface of the acrosome; this makes them more active; occurs in the uterus or uterine tubes by secreted substances by female genital track.

    ____________ is the basic unit of female reproductive biology and is composed of roughly spherical aggregations of cells found in the ovary. They contain a single oocyte. These structures are periodically initiated to grow and develop, culminating in ovulation of usually a single competent oocyte. These eggs/ova are only developed once every menstrual cycle.

    In the uterus are the tube-like ____________, lined by ciliated columnar epithelium. They are of small size in the unimpregnated uterus, but shortly after impregnation become enlarged and elongated, presenting a contorted or waved appearance.
