An introduction to minerals and rocks under the microscope
In this free course, An introduction to minerals and rocks under the microscope, you will experience the study of minerals using a polarising microscope. While the study of minerals can involve electron or ion beam chemical analysis, the polarising microscope remains the prime tool for the study of rock thin sections and is the foundation of learning to recognise, characterise and identify rocks.

Sensory Exam: Anatomy: Level of Crossing (Localizing Lesions)
The level of crossing of the axons of the 2nd order neurons is immediate for the ST system and not until the medulla for the DCML system.
