Coordination Exam: Normal Exam: Finger-to-nose
The patient moves her pointer finger from her nose to the examiner's finger as the examiner moves his finger to new positions and tests accuracy at the furthest outreach of the arm. 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

Testing Cranial and Spinal Nerve Functional Integrity and Deficits
The virtual patients simulate the peripheral nervous system component part of the physical exam. It was designed to stimulate self-directed and problem-based learning. The rationale was to integrate related disciplines into a structured format that is readily accessible for local and distance learning, and learner self-assessment. It complements didactic and practical (dissection) activities of beginner health professional students enrolled in basic sciences.
Radiological Images of the Abdomen and Pelvis
This interactive tutorial serves as an introduction to normal x-rays and cross-sections of the abdomen and pelvis for preclinical students enrolled in medical and dental human structure. The courseware was digitized and converted into Adobe Flash to provide beginners with introductory imaging that is critical to the interpretation of standard X-rays and CT- and MRI-scans. Its objective is to stimulate active self-directed learning by integrating introductory radiographic anatomy and into a struc

A First Look At Phenology
The purpose of this resource is to increase students' awareness of the qualitative changes in plants during green-up and green-down from which they will be collecting quantitative leaf change data, and to develop an understanding of the patterns and differences among plants at the same location. Students will observe, compare, and classify plants during green-up or green-down and then make inferences based on the patterns they observe.
