This chapter describes how the human organism grows and develops from fertilization through death. The following stages of life are described in detail: germinal stage, embryonic stage, fetal stage, infancy, childhood, adolescence, and adulthood. Since Vanessa is three months pregnant, they are worried about whether Vanessa was also exposed to lead. If so, what effects could it have on the developing baby? The main events in this stage of development are illustrated in the figure below and described in detail in the rest of this concept.
The germinal stage lasts a total of eight to nine days. It begins in a Fallopian tube when an ovum is fertilized by a sperm to form a zygote day 0. The germinal stage continues as the zygote undergoes several initial cell divisions to a morula. For pioneering developmental biologist Lewis Wolpert, however, these life events are overrated.
According to Wolpert, "It is not birth, marriage, or death, but gastrulation, which is truly the most important time in your life.
She is nearly nine months pregnant, so the fetus is fully developed and almost ready to be born. The fetus has grown tremendously and changed in many other ways since it was a tiny embryo seven months previously. The term baby is usually considered synonymous with infant, although it is commonly applied to the young of other animals, as well as humans. Human infants seem weak and helpless at birth, but they are actually born with a surprising range of abilities. Most of their senses are quite well developed, and they can also communicate their needs by crying.
The age of majority varies by place and purpose. For example, in the United States, at age 18, you are considered an adult for military service, but a minor for buying alcohol. Biologically, childhood is defined as the stage of a human organism between birth and adolescence. It is generally considered to start with puberty, during which sexual maturation occurs and adolescents go through a spurt in growth.
In many children, however, puberty actually begins during the stage called pre-adolescence, which covers the ages 11 to 12 years. Puberty may begin before adolescence, but it usually continues for several years, well into the adolescent stage, which ends during the late teens. What ages define the beginning and end of adulthood? Thumbnail: Father and son on a beach via Pixabay.

An evolutionary and biocultural approach is taken to the study of human growth and development. The evolutionary perspective focuses on the unusual process of human postnatal growth and development, a process that takes two decades to complete and traverses the stages of infancy, childhood, juvenility, and adolescence. Human childhood and adolescence are highly unusual even compared to our closest living relatives, perhaps unique. The biocultural perspective of human development focuses on the constant interaction taking place during all phases of human development between genes and hormones within the body and the sociocultural environment that surrounds the body.
