This resource is a tutorial that was developed in Macromedia Flash to convey supplemental information about the normal structure, function, and segmental innervations of definitive dermatomyotomes. Its objective is to stimulate self-directed local and distance learning by creating a diagram, animations, and linked tables of the key structures (skin and skeletal muscles) derived from embryonic dermatomyotomes, and definitive neuromuscular relations as related to movements of the upper and lower limbs. The courseware is user friendly and complements didactic and practical (dissection) activities of preclinical health care professionals enrolled in human structure and medical embryology courses.
