Scientific theories are tested every time someone makes an observation or conducts an experiment, so it is misleading to think of science as an edifice, built on foundations. Rather, scientific knowledge is more like a web. The difference couldn’t be more crucial. A tall edifice can collapse – if the foundations upon which it was built turn out to be shaky. But a web can be torn in several parts without causing the collapse of the whole. The damaged threads can be patiently replaced and re-connected with the rest – and the whole web can become stronger, and more intricate. (Massimo Pigliucci)

1 | Feedback in Online tests

7 minutes
In Episode 36, Adam Rich called in regarding how we can provide feedback to students taking online tests. I responded that I encourage students to get the correct response from their study buddies—or from me. After the episode aired, Krista Rompolski pointed out that this could be a challenge in very large courses. What do y'all think? Tell us. Really.


2 | The Anatomical Compass

6.5 minutes
Although you and I are comfortable in orienting ourselves to anatomical directions when looking at diagrams, photographs, and specimens in anatomy, our beginning student often are not. The simple process of adding an "anatomical rosette" reflecting the anatomical directions in each encountered diagram can  help students develop the skill of understanding anatomical perspective.

Hematopoietic stem cells  (HSCs) may have a "back-up system" that helps out after damage to the working population. These "reserve" HSCs (rHSCs) may step up when the primed HSCs (pHSCs) cannot keep up with the demand for hematopoiesis.

1 | Adam Rich Calls In

10 minutes
Kevin responds to a call from Adam Rich of SUNY Brockport regarding giving students feedback/corrected responses in online tests.

 Online testing

 

2 | New Type of Vessel in Bones

3.5 minutes
Scientists have discovered a system of small vessels that cross every part of a bone's cortical layers to supply most of the bone's blood—over 80% of the arterial supply and 59% of venous drainage. The proposed name is trans-cortical vessels (TCVs).
  • We’ve discovered a new type of blood vessel in our bones (brief article summarizing the discovery) my-ap.us/2B6tHce
  • A network of trans-cortical capillaries as mainstay for blood circulation in long bones (full research article) my-ap.us/2B6ttSq

3 | Big Year: Content Updates & Applications

6 minutes
The first of several segments in a "debriefing" of the first year of this podcast.
This year brought many content updates and brief teaching snippets, from using green pens for grading to the role of platelets in immunity. Too many to mention, but Kevin gives his best shot at listing some of those that seem to be most memorable.

This segment reviews some of the major topics and themes that emerged during the first year of the podcast.  From caring-empathy-compassion to integrity to storytelling, and from testing-as-teaching to elephant skin to learning science, a lot was covered! And what about those guest interviews--the Learning Scientists, media expert Barbara Waxer, anatomy educator Aaron Fried, and artist-professor Paul Krieger? And let's not forget those "lucky numbers"!

The big ideas are usually simple ideas. (David Ogilvy)

1 | Cholesterol & ApoB in Cardiac Risk

5 minutes
Apolipoprotein B (ApoB) is the protein part of the lipoprotein particles in our bloodstream that contain cholesterol. In primary medical care, we often measure total low-density lipoprotein (LDL) or non-high-density lipoprotein (non-HDL) to help us determine risk for cardiovascular disease. As protocols are reviewed, some believe measuring ApoB is a better measure of cardiovascular risk.

lipoprotein structure

 

2 | How Oxytocin Works

4 minutes
We know oxytocin (OT) promotes labor contractions of the uterine myometrium. But how? New evidences helps explain the mechanism.
  • Oxytocin can regulate myometrial smooth muscle excitability by inhibiting the Na+‐activated K+ channel, Slo2.1 (research article from The Journal of Physiology) my-ap.us/2AJsDLf

4 | Smell Affects Cortisol / Stress

4.5 minutes
Smells in our environment can increase or decrease blood cortisol levels, indicating modulation of our stress response. In particular, the smell of a romantic partner can reduce a woman's stress. Hmmm. Might it also reduce test anxiety? Interesting...

6 | Big Ideas - Essential Concepts in A&P

11.5 minutes
When telling the story of human structure & function, we want our students to identify the "big ideas" and even just the "kinda big ideas," as well as both the "main characters" and "minor characters." By making a habit of looking for the kinda big ideas, perhaps running a concept list to collect them, students may begin to understand the essential concepts of A&P. And it may help them see the connectness of the structures and functions of the body.

1 | Summer neuroscience workshop

3 minutes
Thirteenth Annual Summer Workshop: Hardware and Software Experiments to Teach Neuroscience. Kevin participated in an earlier version of this workshop and got a lot out of it.
  • During 2019, partial costs associated with the Workshop (lodging in MU dorms + meals) will be provided by a grant.
  • See Neuro Workshop Flyer Summer 2019
  • 1-week Summer Course
    • July 14 to July 20, 2019
    • Starts at 7 p.m. on Sunday, July 14, and ends at 5 p.m. on Saturday, July 20 (travel days of Sunday 14 July and Sunday 21 July)
    • Limited to 10 participants
    • Deadline of February 15, 2019
      • Review of applications may begin earlier

 

 

2 | Ganglion cells

7 minutes
Light-sensitive ganglion cells contain the visual pigment melanopsin that is involved a non-imaging kind of vision that helps us detect sunlight levels in our environment. This information helps us sync our biological clocks to our environment—and may affect our mood.
  • Scientists Find A Brain Circuit That Could Explain Seasonal Depression (brief article and audio story)
  • Luxotonic signals in human frontal-polar cortex: A possible substrate for effects of light on mood (abstract of a presentation at Neuroscience 2018)

Dissection lists are a type of "lab list" in which each structure required for discovery, familiarization, and/or mastery is listed in a clearly organized handout. This handout can be used by students for organizing learning and clarifying their learning objectives—and by teachers to help monitor student progress for effective coaching.

6 | Pre-dissection practice activity

7 minutes
A simple handout with photographs of dissection specimens can be used by students to walk through their dissection activity before they arrive in the lab. This gives them a stronger preparation that a "cold start" in lab, which often gets chaotic of students aren't practiced in finding structures.
