PediNeuroLogic Exam: 3 Month Old: Normal: Motor - Lower Extremity Tone
Tone in the lower extremities is present with the appropriate resistance to passive range of motion. The tight flexor tone of the newborn is no longer present. A neuroscience tutorial focusing on those aspects of the pediatric neurological examination that are unique to the child's nervous system, with an emphasis on important neurodevelopmental milestones.
La construcción de la Soberanía Alimentaria
Esta asignatura tiene la intención de profundizar en diversos elementos constructivos y en generar aportes reflexivos teórico-prácticos sobre la Soberanía Alimentaria y sus diversas propuestas concretas.
Energy Systems Activity
Posters are provided for several different energy conversion systems. The students are provided with cards that give the name and a description of each of the components in the energy system. They have to match these with the figures on the diagram. Since the groups look at different systems, they must also describe their results with the class to share their knowledge.

Installing and using the BioBar toolbar for Firefox
This video shows how to install and use the BioBar toolbar on Firefox. This is a nifty addition to the browser that makes accessing many of the usual online databases and tools very easy. It also allows you to easily run a search at these databases without having to navigate to the website first. BioBar can be found at biobar.mozdev.org and was written by Jawahar Swaminathan at the EBI.
Measuring Different Lanes on the Track
In this video segment from Cyberchase, Bianca competes in her first track meet, but doubts the fairness of starting further back in the inside track lane for a 200 meter race.
The Benefits of Biodiversity
First, students toss coins to determine what traits a set of mouse parents possess, such as fur color, body size, heat tolerance, and running speed. Next they use coin tossing to determine the traits a mouse pup born to these parents possesses. These physical features are then compared to features that would be most adaptive in several different environmental conditions. Finally, students consider what would happen to the mouse offspring if those environmental conditions were to change: which mi
Find Your Own Direction
In this activity, students create their own simple compass using thread, needle and water in a bowl and learn how it works.
Hurricane Floyd from SeaWiFS: September 14, 1999
Zoom in to Hurricane Floyd as seen by SeaWiFS on September 14, 1999
Hurricane Florence from TRMM: September 13, 2000
Orbit T07, taken at 10:25 UT
Hurricane Dennis from TRMM: August 27, 1999
A fly-in to Hurricane Dennis on August 27, 1999, showing the three-dimensional structure of the precipitation as measured by the Precipitation Radar instrument on TRMM. In this animation, a surface of constant precipitation is colored by the value of the precipitation on the ground under the surface. The global cloud cover data was measured by GOES.
An Overview of SeaWiFS and the SeaStar Spacecraft
Visitors can read and view animations and a movie that describe the SeaStar spacecraft and the SeaWiFS instrument. Materials presented here explain the physical characteristics of the vehicle, its launch procedure and orbit, and the capabilities of the instrument. Links to related topics are provided.
Gait Exam: Normal Exam: Natural Gait
The patient should be able to walk with a smooth, coordinated gait. There should be normal associated movement of the upper extremities. 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,
Motor Exam: Abnormal Examples: Lower Extremities - Inspection & Palpation
There is hypertrophy of this patient's left leg. Closer inspection of that extremity shows hyperpigmented skin lesions suggesting segmental neurofibromatosis. A thorough skin search can provide important clues to diagnosis especially in the neurocutaneous syndromes. 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 "
Cranial Nerve Exam: Normal Exam: Cranial Nerve 5 - Motor
The motor division of CN 5 supplies the muscles of mastication (temporalis, masseters, and pterygoids). Palate the temporalis and masseter muscles as the patient bites down hard. Then have the patient open their month and resist the examiner's attempt to close the month. If there is weakness of the pterygoids the jaw will deviate towards the side of the weakness. The last test for this nerve is testing for a jaw jerk, which is a stretch reflex. Have the patient slightly open their month then pla
PediNeuroLogic Exam: Newborn: Abnormal: Primitive Reflexes - Stepping
With the baby held in vertical suspension and his feet touching the mat, he does not have the expected reciprocal flexion and extension of the legs. The stepping or walking reflex is absent in this baby. A neuroscience tutorial focusing on those aspects of the pediatric neurological examination that are unique to the child's nervous system, with an emphasis on important neurodevelopmental milestones.
