The heart is one of the first organs to form during mammalian development and, in a human, was thought to form a beating structure from 3 weeks following conception. But now new imaging techniques have shown that the process occurs even earlier.

When does our heart first start to beat? Until now, researchers thought that the first time our heart muscle contracted to beat was at eight days after conception in mice, which equates to around day 21 of a human pregnancy.

Stimulating the heart to repair itself is within scientific touching distance, thanks in large part to the work of Professor Paul Riley and his team in the Department of Physiology, Anatomy and Genetics
