A Look At Books
We have many books all around us. More and more books are being made all the time. Have you wondered what it takes to make a book?
PediNeuroLogic Exam: 6 Month Old: Normal: Reflexes - Deep Tendon Reflexes
It is hard to get the baby relaxed and cooperative enough to get the limb in the optimal position for obtaining deep tendon reflexes. At this age, all the deep tendon reflexes tested in an adult exam should be obtainable. 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.
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.
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
US Is In Serious Trouble
Description not set
This patient education program explains the advantages and risks of colonoscopy. It also reviews the anatomy of the colon, diseases of the colon, and what this procedure involves. This is a MedlinePlus Interactive Health Tutorial from the National Library of Medicine, designed and developed by the Patient Education Institute.
All month long, in honor of Colon Cancer awareness, Dr. Raju, in the department of Gastroenterology, Hepatology, and Nutrition, is answering colonoscopy questions on facebook via video from his computer here at MD Anderson.
Preston Scott Cohen -- Architecture Lecture Series
February 25th | Timken Lecture Hall Michael Weinstock is director of research and development, and director of emergent technologies and design in the Graduate School of the Architectural Association, London, which won the 2008 ACADIA Award of Excellence for Innovative Academic Programs. Born in Germany, Weinstock lived as a child in the Far East and West Africa, then ran away to sea at age 17. He spent years on traditional wooden sailing ships and learned shipyard and shipbuilding skills. Wei

PediNeuroLogic Exam: Newborn: Normal: Reflexes - Deep Tendon Reflexes
Testing deep tendon reflexes is an important part of the newborn neurological exam. They can be technically difficult to do. The first thing is to use a reflex hammer, not a finger or a stethoscope. Ideally, the baby is in a quiet alert state with the head in the midline. The head turned to one side can reinforce the tone and reflexes on that side. I usually start with the knee jerk because is the easiest to obtain. Take control of the leg with the hand under the knee and the leg at about a 90 d
Exploring Important Biological Concepts Using Biology Workbench
This set of three activities uses Biology Workbench, a website that brings together sequence databases and online software for searching databases, aligning sequences, and creating inferred phylogenetic trees. The first two activities explore the diversity of preproinsulin sequences across species. Students use the Student Version of Biology Workbench and search databases by keyword in the first activity, while, in the second, students use the actual Biology Workbench and search the databases us
