Cranial Nerve Exam: Normal Exam: Cranial Nerve 2 - Visual Fields
There are several different screening tests that can be used to assess visual fields at the bedside. First hold up both hands superiorly and inferiorly and ask the patient if they can see both hands and do they look symmetric. Then test each eye individually using your fingers in the four quadrants of the visual field and ask the patient to count fingers held up or point to the hand when a finger wiggles using yourself as a control. A second screening test is to use a grid card. Have the patient
Erythemal Index for August 2000 through July 2001: North and South America
The Erythemal Index is a measure of ultraviolet radiation (UV) at ground level on the Earth. UV exists to the left of the visible spectrum and is divided into three components (UV-A, UV-B and UV-C). UV-B (290-320 wavelengths) is the most dangerous form of UV radiation that can reach ground level. Atmospheric ozone shields life at the surface from most of the harmful components of solar radiation. Chemical processes in the atmosphere can effect the level of protection provided by the ozone in the
Multiple Sclerosis - General Observations Exam - Opening Interview Sub-exam - Patient 16

Girls Exploring Physics
Given that women make up less than 25 percent of Canadian graduate students pursing physics, SFU physicist Sarah Johnson hopes her workshop "Girls Exploring Physics" will draw girls to the discipline. Johnson says the initiative, running for a second consecutive year in 2011, targets girls in senior high school because "this is about the age when girls become less interested in physics and engineering. A lot of girls take high-school physics but there's a big drop off in their interest in the d
1.1 Overview of Mozart's sonatas
This unit introduces ‘voice-leading’ or ‘Schenkerian’ analysis, perhaps the most widely-used and discussed method of analysing tonal music. In this unit, this method is explained through the analysis of piano sonatas by Mozart.
