PediNeuroLogic Exam: Newborn: Normal: Tone - Neck Tone
The tone of the neck can be assessed by passively rotating the head towards the shoulder. The chin should be able to rotate to the shoulder but not beyond the shoulder. If the chin goes beyond the shoulder then there is hypotonia of the neck muscles, which is associated with poor head control. 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.

Using Dermatoglyphics from Down Syndrome and Class Populations to Study the Genetics of a complex tr
Dermatoglyphics is the study of epidermal ridges on the hands and feet. Ridge patterns and counts develop prenatally, are inherited, and show quantitative variation. This exercise introduces the preparation and interpretation of finger and palm prints for quantitative analysis. The techniques are simple, inexpensive, and can be adapted as an exercise on genetics for beginning or advanced students. Palm prints from individuals with Down Syndrome serve as a population sample to statistically test

Expression Vectors Used in Project-Oriented Teaching Laboratories Chapter 2
This chapter describes a multi-week project taught in an upper level cell and molecular biology laboratory. Isolation of sufficient quantities of rare proteins from biological tissues can be difficult. These native proteins are often required for raising antibodies, and for studying enzymatic or regulatory function. Expression vectors are used to obtain large quantities of proteins. The cDNA encoding a protein is cloned into an expression vector. The fusion protein is over-expressed in E. coli,

Learning cultures, interventions and transformations: early and emergent findings from the Transform
This project operates in a ‘nested case study’ design and relies on a unique partnership between teachers and researchers. Analysis at the case level is well advanced, whilst that at cross-case level is well under way. A more holistic cross-project analysis, coupled with theoretical development, is the main focus of our work in the remaining year or so. This paper provides an overview of early and emerging findings, focused on two of the project’s three core aims. In relation to our ai
