This project was created to fill a need in available placental development instructional tools. In the current literature, there are few three-dimensional representations of placental villous tree structure. This animation provides an overview of placental development and includes a three-dimensional depiction of a placental villous tree. Following creation of this animation, a survey was administered to assess the helpfulness of both the animation and the three-dimensional villous tree representations. Survey responses were overwhelmingly positive and show that this tool aids in the development of an accurate mental model of true placental villous tree form.
