Animation 1:

A surface view of the implantation site. The chorionic cavity has collapsed onto the central raised embryonic mass.

Animation 2:

Horizontal oscillation of the trophoblast (pink). The membranous trophoblast has been ommitted to show the embryonic mass (yellow, pt.1) which is composed of the epiblast (green) and hypoblast (yellow, pt. 2)

Animation 3:

Vertical rotation of the trophoblast and embryonic mass.

In addition to these animations that were made from the WinSurf reconstructions, we are also providing the original WinSurf files together with a WinSurf Viewer. Models displayed in the Viewer can be rotated about all three axes, users can zoom in and out, and models can be translated. Also, the color and opacity of different objects in the models can be varied.
