Embryology of the fascia - The meso as the origin of the fascia

Dr. med. Jaap van der Wal MD, PhD (NLD): Jaap Van der Wal specialized himself after his graduation as medical doctor (1973) in anatomy and embryology. The main topic of his research was the functional organization of the muscle and connective tissue in the locomotor system. In 1988 he graduated in this field by a dissertation on a “trans-anatomical” organization of human proprioception. In 2009 he presented in the field of fascia research his view on architecture of muscle and connective tissue as the main feature to understand the functional organization of fascia in the body and the significance of fascia in the human tensegrity organization. [After his retirement in 2012 he is mainly involved in his project Embryo Motion, a training in Phenomenological Embryology and Dynamic Morphology].
