Sotgiu, Maria Alessandra; Mazzarello, Vittorio; Bandiera, Pasquale; Madeddu, Roberto; Montella, Andrea; Moxham, Bernard – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2020
Neuroanatomy has been deemed crucial for clinical neurosciences. It has been one of the most challenging parts of the anatomical curriculum and is one of the causes of "neurophobia," whose main implication is a negative influence on the choice of neurology in the near future. In the last decades, several educational strategies have been…

Crandell, Olivia M.; Lockhart, Macy A.; Cooper, Melanie M. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2020
This three-year study builds on prior work analyzing students' causal mechanistic explanations about acid-base reactions. Here we extend that work to characterize and investigate how students construct causal mechanistic explanations of simple nucleophilic substitution reactions. After an initial pilot study, we adopted a modified version of the…
