Normal - Motor Exam - Muscle Tone Sub-exam - Patient 1
Patient is a female with no known neurological health problems who volunteered to act as a simulated patient in order to demonstrate 'normal' responses to exam techniques. She is merely a reference point for exam procedures and protocols, as well as to denote subtle signs from diagnosed patients.

Stroke - Mental Status Exam - Language Sub-exam - Patient 19
This video features a 65-year-old right-handed white male. He was in the Air Force from 1962 until his retirement in 1982. The veteran reported that in 1995 he was diagnosed with inclusion body myositis. He first reported a problem in the early 1990s when carrying his briefcase. He noted problems lifting his right leg up to step onto the bus. Falls began around1994, prompting him to seek medical attention. The initial evaluation showed primarily lower motor neuron findings. He underwent several
CT Scan (CAT Scan) (Spanish)
This patient education program explains the benefits and risks of Computed Axial Tomography, CAT scan or CT scan, and describes the procedure for the test. This is a MedlinePlus Interactive Health Tutorial from the National Library of Medicine, designed and developed by the Patient Education Institute.
Ecology and the ecosystem - Quiz
Test your knowledge on the different areas of ecology such as the habitat, adaptations, competition and energy flow within an ecosystem
African American history is both discovered in and continued by an ancient oral tradition. Richard Josey describes the process of restoring a community's voice.
Age of Piracy
Pirates seek treasure both sunken and sea-going, from the 17th century through today. William and Mary Professor Kris Lane draws the connections between the old traditions and the fresh emergences of piracy.Author(s):
Examining Genetic Diversity in Disjunct Populations using Random DNA Markers
Molecular biological techniques are used to study naturally occurring genetic variation, and have greatly facilitated the understanding of problems in many areas of biology. In this lab, we examine two populations of terrestrial isopods in the Family Armadillidiidae using Random Amplification of Polymorphic DNA (RAPD Analysis). RAPDs are robust and generally species-independent. Using this technique, we are able to detect and analyze genetic variation within and between two different populations
Elephant hawk moth caterpillar
Some animals have false eye spots on their bodies to make them appear larger and more threatening than they potentially could be. This could scare off predators and allow the animal to escape.
Different kinds of exercise
Exercise is a vital component of staying fit and healthy. There are two main types of workouts. Cardio workouts work to maintain and strengthen the cardiovascular system and burn calories. Weight training workouts work to build muscle and tone the body so that it can move more easily and increase flexibility. Both kinds of workouts should be incorporated to lead a healthy lifestyle.
Daphnia blood circulation
Daphnia have an open circulatory system but clearly defined blood cells.
Coordination Exam: Normal Exam: Heel-to-shin
The patient places her heel on the opposite knee then runs the heel down the shin to the ankle and back to the knee in a smooth coordinated fashion. 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
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
PediNeuroLogic Exam: 12 Month Old: Normal: Motor/Coordination - Play Ball
The infant plays the simple game of throw the ball. His throw is not an overhand throw which is seen in an 18 month old but rather a pushing away and dropping type of throw that is typical for this age. 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.
