Resources

Online journals

Neurology physical exam

  • Interactive neuro exam
    Good resource for students. Video clips are available showing the physical exam. Text and tables are also presented.
  • Connecticut tutorials
    15- to 30-minute video clips outlining practices in several disciplines, including neurology, cardiology, pulmonology among several others.

Neuro anatomy links

Ophthalmology and eye movement disorders 

  • UC DAVIS Neurological Eye Simulator
    This website contains some great simulation programs that allows you to enable or disable various nerves and muscles of the eye and elicit the appropriate response. There are also quiz modules asking you to decipher in which muscle or nerve the lesion lies. This website is helpful for students in the neuroanatomy course for discovering the actions of CN III, IV, and VI, as well as for more advanced medical students and residents - especially in the quiz section that tests knowledge of the particular lesion, symptom, or case study presented. Excellent teaching tool.
  • Handbook of Ocular Disease Management
    This website provides nice boxes of "clinical pearls" that appear to be very helpful for students in clinical rotations and possibly for resident review. There is information on a variety of disorders, including information regarding their signs and symptoms, pathophysiology, and management. There does not seem to be interactive activities on this website and the pictures are not able to be enlarged.

Medicine research links

  • Neurosciences Guide to the Internet¬†
    This site is a search engine designed specifically for the neurosciences. It is helpful in that it allows simulations on selection using 'and/ or' criteria.
  • Harrison's Online
    Online Harrison's, the "authoritative" medicine textbook."
  • PubMed
  • Up to Date
    Quick, easy to search guide to the most current information. Useful only if you are on campus or have personal paid access.

Grant money and organizations

  • NIH
    The NIH is always a good place to look for funding. If you are a medical student, look into the "F31" grants. If you are an MD/PhD student, check out "F30". If you are an upper level resident who is thinking about fellowship or an academic career, look toward the "K" grants.
  • NINDS
    National Institute of Neurologic Disease and Stroke is willing to provide grant money for individuals conducting research that will further neurology research.
  • American Heart Association
    The AHA is concerned with vascular function and may be willing to fund stroke research.

MD/PhD candidates

  • American Physician Scientist Association
    Good resource for MD/PhD students. Provides opportunities to become involved and contribute to the clinician/scientist community as we continue to bridge the gap from bench to bedside.
  • Medical Scientist Training Program
    Student written guide to what the MD/PhD application process and a basic outline of the programs.
  • MD/PhD.org
    Another basic outline web site. Lists all of the programs in the United States.

Other links

  • American Medical Association
    Medical student organization that is heavily involved in the political aspect of medicine. Offers opportunities to students to be involved in health care policy making.
  • Brain Awareness Week
    The DANA foundation sponsors Brain Awareness Week in March of each year. Make an effort to get involved and support neurology!
  • Student Doctor Network
    Good website for students to interact with other students from across the country and around the world. The Neurology Forum often discusses cases and residency programs.
  • Sylvius Neuroanatomical Reference
    Nice site showing neuro-anatomy structure and function. Very good teaching tool. Need to purchase to view the most helpful components. **iPod friendly version available**
  • Neuron Art
    Very nice 3D and AV representation of neurons and ganglia! It's good to use the right side of your brain once in a while.
