PediNeuroLogic Exam: Newborn: Normal: Tone - Popliteal Angle
The popliteal angle is an assessment of the tone of the hamstring muscles. It is done one leg at a time. The thigh is flexed on the abdomen with one hand and then the other hand straightens the leg by pushing on the back of the ankle until there is firm resistance to the movement. The angle between the thigh and the leg is typically about 90 degrees. Extension of the leg beyond 90 to 120 degrees would be seen in hypotonia. A neuroscience tutorial focusing on those aspects of the pediatric neurol
ART 341-01, Modern Art I: European Art 1760-1884, Fall 2006
The objectives of the course are as follows: (1) to provide students with a comprehensive overview of the major images, artists, and movements of European art between 1760 and 1884; (2) to integrate these images with the broader social and intellectual history of the period; and (3) to help students develop their skills in visual analysis, image identification, critical reading, research, and historical interpretation. Among the issues we will examine are the following: the revival of classical

20-Year Arctic Autumn Seasonal Surface Temperature Trend
Here the 20-year seasonal surface temperature trend for the autumn is shown over the Arctic region. This animation shows the warming and cooling regions in steps from the regions of least change to the areas of greatest change. Blue hues indicate cooling regions; red hues depict warming. Light regions indicate less change while darker regions indicate more. The temperature scale used ranges from -0.4 to +0.4 degrees Celsius in increments of .02 degrees. (See color bar below)
Using Microcomputer-Based Physiology Experiments in Investigative Labs in Introductory Biology
This resource is a detailed report on the use of computer-based laboratory experiments in undergraduate physiology courses. It includes general course overviews, recommended laboratory exercises, student and instructor opinions of new teaching strategies, and evaluation of the efficacy of the teaching strategies presented.
Global Infrared Cloud Cover, September 2001 (WMS)
This animation is a mosaic of cloud cover data taken by several different satellites in the infrared band. One of the most prominent cloud features during this time was Hurricane Erin near the Atlantic coast of the United States.

Depression or Recession? Parallels with 1929
John Godfrey Morris can tell you a little about The Depression. He lived through it. An American photojournalist, Morris covered the landings in Normandy on D-Day for Time Life and followed the allied troops into Paris. He returned to the city in 1983 and is still there today, having been made a member of the French Legion of Honour. Now, at the sprightly age of 94, John shares his recollections of the Great Depression with INSEAD Knowledge.
You're the Expert
Student teams learn about and devise technical presentations on four reproductive technology topics pregnancy ultrasound, amniocentesis, in-vitro fertilization or labor anesthetics. Each team acts as a panel of engineers asked to make a presentation to a group of students unfamiliar with the reproductive technology. Each group incorporates non-lecture elements into its presentation for greater effectiveness. As students learn about the technologies, by creating a presentation and listening to ot
Cranial Nerve Exam: Anatomy: Cranial Nerve 11
This nerve is a motor nerve for the sternocleidomastoid and trapezius muscles. The UMN control for the sternocleidomastoid (SCM) is an exception to the rule of the ipsilateral cerebral hemisphere controls the movement of the contralateral side of the body. Because of the crossing then recrossing of the corticobulbar tracts at the high cervical level, the ipsilateral cerebral hemisphere controls the ipsilateral SCM muscle. This makes sense as far as coordinating head movement with body movement i
Cranial Nerve Exam: Anatomy: Cranial Nerve 6
This cranial nerve innervates the lateral rectus for eye abduction. Remember that cranial nerves 3, 4 and 6 must work in concert for conjugate eye movements if they don't then diplopia (double vision) results. The medial longitudinal fasciculus (MLF) connects the 6th nerve nucleus to the 3rd nerve nucleus for conjugate movement. The first principle of neurologic diagnosis is regional or anatomical localization. In order to become skillful the student must understand how structure relates to func
Postural and Kinetic Tremor - Motor Exam - Muscle Strength 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

Moving Social Security Online (Conference) - Session 5 [Audio]
Speaker(s): Mark O'Neill, Jerry Fishenden, Martin Ferguson | LSE Public Policy Group, LSE Moving Social Security Online Conference, Wednesday 29 June 2011. In the present fiscal climate, governments must cut the costs of delivering services at the same time as maintaining quality. They must also cope with the demands of increasing numbers of the unemployed and the aging. A key imperative therefore is to move the bulk of social security processes and transactions online.
