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.

African Vegetation: Comparing August 1984 and August 1994
For many years, scientists have believed that the southern expansion of the Sahara has been due to human activity. However, results from the AVHRR instrument and its measurements of vegetation suggest a different explanation: rainfall patterns. In drier years (1984 was one of the driest summers in recorded history in Northern Africa), the Sahara expands south, but in wetter years (such as 1994), vegetation moves back and there is no net expansion of the Sahara as had been previously suggested.

Have the patient use their glasses if needed to obtain best-corrected vision. Have the patient hold the pocket chart at the focal length that is best for them which is usually 14 inches. Have them recite the line with the smallest letters that they can read and record the acuity. The first principle of neurologic diagnosis is regional or anatomi
