Hana Anderson; Jennifer A. Weil; Richard P. Tucker; Douglas S. Gross – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2024
The efficacy of the various pedagogies that are used in human anatomy laboratories has been extensively debated. Nevertheless, an important question remains relatively unexamined--how the learning experience in the anatomy laboratory impacts students' mastery and application of anatomical knowledge beyond the laboratory setting. In this study, the…

Jean Langlois; Stanley J. Hamstra; Yvan Dagenais; Renald Lemieux; Marc Lecourtois; Elizabeth Yetisir; Christian Bellemare; Germain Bergeron; George A. Wells – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2024
Haptic perception is used in the anatomy laboratory with the handling of three-dimensional (3D) prosections, dissections, and synthetic models of anatomical structures. Vision-based spatial ability has been found to correlate with performance on tests of 3D anatomy knowledge in previous studies. The objective was to explore whether haptic-based…

Melanie Neumeier; Yuwaraj Narnaware – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2024
Nursing students struggle to retain enough anatomical knowledge to meet their entry to practice competencies, but what knowledge is missing and when this occurs has been previously unexplored. A cohort of 80 nursing students were given multiple choice quizzes to assess their anatomical knowledge on 11 different organ systems during their second,…

Yassine Yachou; Olivier Samson; Olivier Lasvergnas – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2024
While traditional anatomy education often emphasizes passive learning and rote memorization, it seldom employs constructivist theories that focus on active, hands-on experiences for effective learning. This study tests the hypothesis that tactile experiences with modeling clay enhance geometric mental representation more effectively than verbal…

Julian Shu Kai Goh; Ramya Chandrasekaran; Srinivasa Rao Sirasanagandla; Sanchalika Acharyya; Sreenivasulu Reddy Mogali – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2024
Plastination, a permanent preservation method for human tissues and organs, is increasingly being used in anatomy education. However, there is a paucity of systematic reviews and meta-analyses summarizing the educational efficacy of plastinated specimens. This meta-analysis compared the assessment scores of students exposed to plastinated…

Dissabandara, Lakal O.; Nawaratna, Sujeevi; Nirthanan, Selvanayagam – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2023
The objective structured practical examination (OSPE) is a reliable assessment of practical skills in anatomy teaching. It is often administered as low-stake assessments to track progress at multiple time points in anatomy curricula. Standard-setting OSPEs to derive a pass mark and to ensure assessment quality and rigor is a complex task. This…

Niedermair, Julian F.; Antipova, Veronica; Manhal, Simone; Siwetz, Martin; Wimmer-Röll, Monika; Hammer, Niels; Fellner, Franz A. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2023
Technological approaches deploying three-dimensional visualization to integrate virtual anatomy are increasingly used to provide medical students with state-of-the-art teaching. It is unclear to date to which extent virtual anatomy may help replace the dissection course. Medical students of Johannes Kepler University attend both a dissection and a…

Sveistrup, Michelle A.; Langlois, Jean; Wilson, Timothy D. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2023
Spatial abilities (SAs) are cognitive resources used to mentally manipulate representations of objects to solve problems. Haptic abilities (HAs) represent tactile interactions with real-world objects transforming somatic information into mental representations. Both are proposed to be factors in anatomy education, yet relationships between SAs and…

Understanding the three-dimensional (3D) structure of the human skull is imperative for medical courses. However, medical students are overwhelmed by the spatial complexity of the skull. Separated polyvinyl chloride (PVC) bone models have advantages as learning tools, but they are fragile and expensive. This study aimed to reconstruct 3D-printed…

Tan, Jun Wen; Chong, Darren Kai Siang; Ng, Kian Bee; Car, Lorainne Tudor; Mogali, Sreenivasulu Reddy – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2023
Serious games may resolve problems relating to low motivation in complex medical topics such as anatomy. However, they remain relatively novel introductions to the science of learning, and further research is required to ascertain their benefits. This study describes the overall development and testing of a digital serious boardgame designed to…

Taylor, Melissa A.; Loder, Danielle M.; Herr, Michael J.; Nichols, Richard A. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2023
Many medical schools have undergone curricular reform recently. With these reforms, time spent teaching anatomy has been reduced, and there has been a general shift to a pass/fail grading system. At Indiana University School of Medicine (IUSM), a new curriculum was implemented in fall 2016. The year-long human gross anatomy course taught in 2015…

Binocular disparity provides one of the important depth cues within stereoscopic three-dimensional (3D) visualization technology. However, there is limited research on its effect on learning within a 3D augmented reality (AR) environment. This study evaluated the effect of binocular disparity on the acquisition of anatomical knowledge and…

Koh, Zong Jie; Yeow, Marcus; Srinivasan, Dinesh Kumar; Ng, Yee Kong; Ponnamperuma, Gominda G.; Chong, Choon Seng – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2023
Anatomy is an important component in the vertical integration of basic science and clinical practice. Two common pedagogies are cadaveric dissection and examination of prosected specimens. Comparative studies mostly evaluate their immediate effectiveness. A randomized controlled trial design was employed to compare both the immediate and long-term…

Sakthi-Velavan, Sumathilatha; Zahl, Sarah – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2023
Virtual microscopy podcasts (VMPs) are narrative recordings of digital histology images. This study evaluated the outcomes of integrating the VMPs into teaching histology to osteopathic medical students. The hypothesis was that incorporating virtual microscopy podcasts as supplementary histology resources to the curriculum would have a positive…

Ritchie, Helen E.; Oakes, Diana; Drury, Helen; Ollerenshaw, Suzanne; Hegedus, Elizabeth – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2023
Visuospatial skills are considered important attributes when learning anatomy and there is evidence suggesting that this ability can be improved with training techniques including drawing. The Mental Rotations Test (MRT) has been routinely used to assess visuospatial ability. This study aimed to introduce students to drawing as a learning strategy…
