Human Brain Atlas: Brain (Oblique) - Image Map
Nine slides of the anatomical structures of the brain are mapped in this image from the UCLA Interactive Neurosciences Human Brain Atlas.
Sensory Exam: Normal Exam: Light Touch
Light touch (thigmesthesia) is used as a screening test for touch. Both the spinothalamic and DCML systems serve this sensation so it is not specific for either one. A cotton tip applicator or fine hair brush is used. Select areas from different dermatomes and peripheral nerves and compare right versus left. 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 s
Coordination Exam: Normal Exam: Tremor
Patient's arms are held outstretched and fingers extended. Watch for postural or essential tremor. 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 systematic approach to
Coordination Exam: Normal Exam: Tandem Gait
The patient is asked to walk heel-to-toe. Note steadiness. Tandem gait requires the patient to narrow the station and maintain balance over a 4-5 inch width. Patients with midline ataxias have difficulty with tandem 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 neurologic examination permits "dissection" of the nervous system and localiz

Modis Landcover of Asia
New NASA satellite-generated land cover maps are providing scientists with a detailed picture of the distribution of Earths ecosystems and land use Scientists can better determine how vegetation is distributed and land is being used around the world with new NASA satellite-generated land-cover maps. These new maps, based on a global digital database of land cover types Earth images that is updated every 16 days, will help scientists better understand the Earths climate and carbon budget and clim
AIRS Volumetric Cloud Data (Fly Out)
This visualization shows Aqua-AIRS simulated volumetric cloud data for September 13, 1999. The data was created using the Finite Volume Community Climate Model (FVCCM). Temperature and cloud data sets were match rendered for cross dissolves in post production. This visualization was created as a part of the Aqua prelaunch package.
Images of Earth and Space II
This videotape tours the Solar System and outer space using scientific visualizations from Goddard Space Flight Center, Jet Propulsion Laboratory, and the HPCC Earth and Space Sciences Project. At the Sun, simulations investigate processes that create magnetic field and release energetic particles. Earth science begins with the Pacific Ocean, studying the 1997-98 El Nino and Cyclone Susan. Crossing the globe, visualizations trace North Americas East Coast and ocean currents in the North Atlantic
The route of France
At the end of this chapter you will be able to follow a report of a sport event on the radio.
