PediNeuroLogic Exam: 18 Month Old: Normal: Behavior/Mental Status - Points to Body Parts
When asked to point to body parts on the finger puppet, the toddler identifies eyes and mouth correctly. The naming of 2 body parts is normal for an 18 month old. Between 18 and 30 months the toddler should learn to identify 6 out of 8 body parts. 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.
Motor Exam: Normal Exam: Pathological Reflexes
Pathological reflexes: frontal release signs: - snout, root, palmomental. These patterned behavior reflexes appear when there is damage to the frontal lobes, which inhibits these primitive reflexes. In the normal person these reflexes are absent. Pressing a tongue blade on the lips tests for the snout reflex. The abnormal response is a pouting of the lips. The root reflex is tested for by gently stroking the lateral upper lip. The abnormal response is movement of the mouth towards the stimuli. S
Intimal Thickening - A Response to Vascular Injury
This animation is a derivative work based on illustration and description of intimal thickening following vascular injury described in the book "Robbins Pathologic Bases of the Disease" by Cotran, Kumar and Collins (1999). It depicts the migration and proliferation of smooth muscle cells and elaboration of extracellular matrix leading to intimal thickening following vascular injury.

Cerebellar Degeneration - Motor Exam - Muscle Tone Sub-exam - Patient 3
This 42-year-old man complains of poor balance and frequent falls for 6 years. Imbalance has been progressive; he cannot ambulate independently at present. He experiences tremors and weakness. Imbalance has been progressive and he now cannot ambulate independently. He is in good general health except for heavy alcohol use. For the last 10 years, he has consumed a quart of vodka and 5 beers daily. On awakening, he feels "shaky" and calms himself with a morning drink. He has not had blackouts or
PediNeuroLogic Exam: Newborn: Abnormal: Tone - Head Lag
Pulling the baby from the supine to the sitting position demonstrates significant head lag. Also the arms are fully extended so there is no pulling or resistance with traction. The baby fails to bring the head to the upright position once he is in the sitting position. 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.
Neurosurgery - What is it?
This patient education program reviews the anatomy of the nervous system, brain diseases, diseases of the spine and spinal cord, as well as peripheral nerve diseases that may be treated with neurosurgery.

Myasthenia Gravis - Cranial Nerves Exam - Facial Nerve (CN VII) Sub-exam - Patient 11
Patient is a 52-year-old African American male who initially presented with diplopia and dysphagia about five years ago. Serologic testing demonstrated antibodies to the acetylcholine receptor, and repetitive nerve stimulation testing showed a decrement in CMAP at slow frequency repetitive stimulation. He now presents with generalized myasthenia, dysarthria, dysphagia and diplopia during a pyridostigmine-holiday for Tensilon testing.

Working for the Triangle Shirtwaist Company
In this oral history interview conducted by historian Joan Morrison, Pauline Newman told of getting a job at the Triangle Company as a child, soon after arriving in the United States from Lithuania in 1901. Newman described her life as an immigrant and factory worker. Like many other young immigrant workers, she chafed at the strict regulations imposed by the garment manufacturers. One of the greatest industrial tragedies in U.S. history occurred on March 26, 1911, when 146 workers, mostly young
Reinforcing quantitative skills with applied research on tombstone-weathering rates.
This Journal of Geoscience Education article describes a tombstone weathering exercise that reinforces quantitative skills with applied research. The article describes an exercise designed and carried out by students in a surficial processes course. Students measured the rates of tombstone weathering, compiled and analyzed data. The complexity of the data involved in this exercise helps students demonstrate for themselves that mathematical analysis can give meaning to data.
