consciousness1As I’m studying for my first Patho exam next Monday (pray for me), I wanted to share some good websites I’ve been using to review material in more depth.  My first exam covers a lot of neurology (mood disorders, brain trauma, degenerative/dysfunctional nerve disorders relating to the brain, spinal cord, and muscles):

  1. Helpful website for reviewing the brain, how it functions, anatomy, neurons, etc: http://serendip.brynmawr.edu/bb/kinser/Home1.html
  2. My instructor does not use pictures on exams but this was a cool site that showed progressive changes in brain scans related to dysfunctions: http://www.med.harvard.edu/AANLIB/home.html
  3. A great site that reviews the brain & nervous system: http://faculty.washington.edu/chudler/introb.html
  4. This channel on YouTube shows awesome demonstrations of many of the disorders that are discussed in my book.  Videos are by far the best way I learn.
  5. I like this website because it gives a broad review of old stuff like A&P and Micro, Latin derivatives for vocab, etc.  Sometimes you need a refresher: http://www.wisc-online.com/Category.aspx?ID=73
  6. Wikipedia is still a good friend of mine.  Also, get yourself a good medical dictionary because you will need it!  I found mine at Half Price Books for $10.
  7. Great site written by a Yale PhD graduate in neuroscience; uses simple terms for complex ideas: http://neurolove.tumblr.com/
