Science Bulletins: Tapping In—The Promise of Brain-Computer Interface
For decades, neuroscientists have sought to use electronics to communicate with the brain. Computing and surgical technique have now become sophisticated enough to implant devices directly into neural tissue. In this feature, researchers at Albany Medical Center and the Wadsworth Center at the New York State Department of Health reveal a world where mind and machine merge. Their cutting-edge devices translate brain signals into action, helping people with ALS and other disabilities regain the ab

Summary of Teaching Vocabulary through Word Walks
In this video, the speaker, Elliott, discusses the use of word walks to teach vocabulary in the early childhood classroom. He is reviewing and summarizing an article from The Reading Teacher. He goes over what to do before reading, during reading, and after reading. This is a 2 day plan and on second day, you repeat day one but it is more student led. This is a great resource to help teachers learn new strategies for teaching reading and vocabulary development in the elementary classroom. (4:32)
Q&BA for Feb. 12, 2012 (complete)
This is the complete Q&BA session I did on Google+ Hangouts on February 12, 2012. I answered questions from viewers about living in space, binary stars, exoplanets, gravitational slingshots, and more! I know there's some silliness at the beginning, but what the heck. It's free.

Gait Exam: Abnormal Examples: Myopathic Gait Demonstration
With muscular diseases, the proximal pelvic girdle muscles are usually the most weak. Because of this the patient will not be able to stabilize the pelvis as they lift their leg to step forward, so the pelvis will tilt toward the non-weight bearing leg which results in a waddle type of gait. The first principle of neurologic diagnosis is regional or anatomical localization. In order to become skillful the student must understand how structure relates to function of the nervous system. The neurol
Cranial Nerve Exam: Abnormal Examples: Cranial Nerve 12 - Motor
Notice the atrophy and fasciculation of the right side of this patient's tongue. The tongue deviates to the right as well because of weakness of the right intrinsic tongue muscles. These findings are present because of a lesion of the right 12th cranial nerve. The first principle of neurologic diagnosis is regional or anatomical localization. In order to become skillful the student must understand how structure relates to function of the nervous system. The neurologic examination permits "dissec
Gait Exam: Normal Exam: Tandem Gait
Have the patient walk heel-to-toe. The patient should be able to balance without falling or stepping to the side. The first principle of neurologic diagnosis is regional or anatomical localization. In order to become skillful the student must understand how structure relates to function of the nervous system. The neurologic examination permits "dissection" of the nervous system and localizes the disease when present. Instead of simply memorizing the components of the exam, a logical and systemat
Burd Run Interdisciplinary Watershed Research Laboratory
The Burd Run Interdisciplinary Watershed Research Laboratory at Shippensburg University of Pennsylvania (SU) is a cooperative effort among 13 faculty from the Departments of Geography-Earth Science, Biology, and Teacher Education. The goal of the laboratory is to provide intensive undergraduate field training through collection and analysis of related hydrologic, geologic, biologic, and geographic data from a single watershed, establish a comprehensive statistical and spatial watershed database

Calculating Rectangular Area
In this video segment from Cyberchase, the CyberSquad must measure two differently-shaped parcels of land to determine which has a larger area. The CyberSquad uses tarps, fence posts, and finally a grid made out of rope to count squares and determine the area of each parcel. (3:54)
