Extraocular Skeletal Muscle-induced Eye Movements
The tutorial simulates eye movements provoked by the contraction of individual and synergistic extraocular skeletal muscles. The courseware was designed to stimulate self-directed and problem-based, local and distance learning. It complements didactic and practical (dissection) activities of beginner health professional students enrolled in human structure.
PediNeuroLogic Exam: Developmental Anatomy - Cerebral Hemisphere Myelination
The areas of the cerebral hemispheres that are first to myelinate are the posterior portion of the frontal lobes, the parietal lobes and areas of the occipital lobes. The frontal and temporal lobes then myelinate and by the end of the second year, myelination of the cerebrum is largely completed, although there are interconnections of the association cortex that are still being myelinated into the 2nd and 3rd decades of life. A neuroscience tutorial focusing on those aspects of the pediatric neu
PediNeuroLogic Exam: 18 Month Old: Normal: Fine Motor/Coordination - Pincer Grasp and Handedness
The toddler has a good pincer grasp as he grasps the end of a tape measure and pulls on it. He uses both hands well, but now the parents identify that he is starting to use the right hand more than the left hand. Handedness develops in the 2nd year of life. A neuroscience tutorial focusing on those aspects of the pediatric neurological examination that are unique to the child's nervous system, with an emphasis on important neurodevelopmental milestones.
PediNeuroLogic Exam: Newborn: Abnormal: Cranial Nerves
The baby has full conjugate eye movements. The face has a bland appearance, but tickling the feet produces a full grimace and facial muscles are normal. The baby's cry is not high pitched but is softer and not as sustained as one would expect. (The baby has a poor suck, which is demonstrated in the primitive reflex section the exam.) A neuroscience tutorial focusing on those aspects of the pediatric neurological examination that are unique to the child's nervous system, with an emphasis on impor
PediNeuroLogic Exam: Newborn: Normal: Tone - Hand Position
A newborn baby's hand is held in a fisted position with the fingers flexed over the thumb. The hand should open intermittently and should not always be held in a tight fisted position. Rubbing the ulnar aspect of the hand or touching the dorsum of the hand will often cause extension of the fingers. Over the first 1 to 2 months of life, the baby's hand becomes more open. Persistence of a fisted hand is a sign of an upper motor neuron lesion in an infant. A neuroscience tutorial focusing on those

Postural and Kinetic Tremor - Cranial Nerves Exam - Trigeminal (CN V) Nerves Sub-exam - Patient 8
This 37-year-old left-handed white male has had tremors beginning in childhood, before he started school. Over the years, the tremors have slowly progressed in both upper extremities. Tremors have spread to affect the right leg. They are more pronounced in the left. Most of the time tremors are increased with anxiety and activity, but are also present at rest. There are no tremors in his feet. Because of the tremors, the patient cannot write, feed himself, use utensils, or even hold a cup. He c
Motor Exam: Anatomy: Decorticate vs. Decerebrate
A UMN lesion above the level of the red nucleus will result in decorticate posture (thumb tucked under flexed fingers in fisted position, pronation of forearm, flexion at elbow with the lower extremity in extension with foot inversion) while a lesion below the level of the red nucleus but above the level of the vestibulospinal and reticulospinal nuclei will result in decerebrate posture (upper extremity in pronation and extension and the lower extremity in extension). The reason for this is that
David W. Ball of Cleveland State University brings his new survey of general chemistry text, Introductory Chemistry, to the market with a fresh theme that will be sure to hold student interest: "Chemistry is Everywhere." Introductory Chemistry is intended for a one-semester introductory or preparatory chemistry course. Throughout the chapters, David presents two features that reinforce the theme of the textbook, that chemistry is everywhere. The first is the boxed feature titled, appropriately,

Business Information Systems: Design an App for That
Students in introductory Management Information Systems (MIS) courses often ask what a career in MIS looks like. Lacking a clear vision, they make their own assumptions. Often they assume the career involves programming with little human interaction. That MIS is a technical field could not be further from the truth. MIS job descriptions typically require candidates to be able to collaborate, communicate, analyze needs and gather requirements. They also list the need for excellent written and com
