Li, Lei; Li, Lin; Zuo, Yizhi – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2020
The presentation of pre-sliced specimens is a frequently used method in the laboratory teaching of cross-sectional anatomy. In the present study, a new teaching method based on a hands-on slicing activity was introduced into the teaching of brain, heart, and liver cross-sectional anatomy. A randomized, controlled trial was performed. A total of…

Chang, Hyung-Joo; Kang, June; Ham, Byung-Joo; Lee, Young-Mee – Advances in Health Sciences Education, 2016
As clinical reasoning is a fundamental competence of physicians for good clinical practices, medical academics have endeavored to teach reasoning skills to undergraduate students. However, our current understanding of student-level clinical reasoning is limited, mainly because of the lack of evaluation tools for this internal cognitive process.…

Knudsen, Lars; Nawrotzki, Ralph; Schmiedl, Andreas; Mühlfeld, Christian; Kruschinski, Carsten; Ochs, Matthias – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2018
Medical students have difficulties in interpreting two-dimensional (2D) topographic anatomy on sectional images. Hands-on and no hands-on training in ultrasound imaging facilitate learning topographic anatomy. Hands-on training is linked with active search for patterns of anatomical structures and might train pattern recognition for image…

Cipra, Barry – What's Happening in the Mathematical Sciences, 1993
This document consists of the first two volumes of a new annual serial devoted to surveying some of the important developments in the mathematical sciences in the previous year or so. Mathematics is constantly growing and changing, reaching out to other areas of science and helping to solve some of the major problems facing society. Volumes 1 and…

Avramescu, Elena Taina; Marius, Mitrache; Camen, Adrian – International Association for Development of the Information Society, 2016
Over the last two decades nurses have to face the need to be high qualified professionals with always updated competencies and practical skills. Learning on the Internet by the "e learning" method, fundamentally changed the way by which nurses can get information and be involved in educational activities designed to ensure their…

Wilson, James S.; Alvarez, Jacqueline; Davis, Bonnie C.; Duerinckx, Andre J. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2018
Graduating physicians in all subspecialties have an increased need for competency in radiology, particularly since the use of diagnostic imaging continues to grow. To integrate the teaching of radiology with anatomy during the first year of medical school at Howard University, a novel approach was developed to overcome the limitations of resources…

Palmer, Glen A. – Research in Developmental Disabilities: A Multidisciplinary Journal, 2006
This study examined the use of neuropsychological tests to assist in the differential diagnosis of dementia among persons with mental retardation. The author compared performances of persons with mental retardation and dementia ("n" = 10) to persons with mental retardation without dementia ("n" = 12). Participants were matched by IQ (mild or…

Smith, C. J.; Bhanot, A.; Norman, E.; Mullett, J. E.; Bilbo, S. D.; McDougle, C. J.; Zürcher, N. R.; Hooker, J. M. – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2019
Imaging technologies such as positron emission tomography (PET) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) present unparalleled opportunities to investigate the neural basis of autism spectrum disorder (ASD). However, challenges such as deficits in social interaction, anxiety around new experiences, impaired language abilities, and hypersensitivity to…

den Boer, Larissa; van der Schaaf, Marieke F.; Vincken, Koen L.; Mol, Chris P.; Stuijfzand, Bobby G.; van der Gijp, Anouk – Advances in Health Sciences Education, 2018
The interpretation of medical images is a primary task for radiologists. Besides two-dimensional (2D) images, current imaging technologies allow for volumetric display of medical images. Whereas current radiology practice increasingly uses volumetric images, the majority of studies on medical image interpretation is conducted on 2D images. The…

Johnson, Christopher D.; Montgomery, Laura E. A.; Quinn, Joe G.; Roe, Sean M.; Stewart, Michael T.; Tansey, Etain A. – Advances in Physiology Education, 2016
This laboratory session provides hands-on experience for students to visualize the beating human heart with ultrasound imaging. Simple views are obtained from which students can directly measure important cardiac dimensions in systole and diastole. This allows students to derive, from first principles, important measures of cardiac function, such…

Gegenfurtner, Andreas; Seppanen, Marko – Computers & Education, 2013
Expertise research has produced mixed results regarding the problem of transfer of expertise. Is expert performance context-bound or can the underlying processes be applied to more general situations? The present study tests whether expert performance and its underlying processes transfer to novel tasks within a domain. A mixed method study using…

Winiker, Katharina; Hammond, Rebecca; Thomas, Paige; Dimmock, Alice; Huckabee, Maggie-Lee – International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders, 2022
Background: The use of ultrasound as an adjunct to clinical swallowing evaluation provides quantitative physiological and morphological data. As a low-risk procedure, ultrasound imaging can be performed outside of a medical setting. This is particularly important for patients living in rural areas with restricted access to a hospital. Technical…
