ABOUT THIS WEBSITE...

The "PEDIATRIC NEUROLOGIC EXAM: A NEURODEVELOPMENTAL APPROACH" uses over 145 video demonstrations and narrative descriptions in an online tutorial. It presents the neurological examination of the pediatric patient as couched within the context of neurodevelopmental milestones for Newborns, 3 month-olds, 6 month-olds, 12 month-olds, 18 month-olds, and 2-and-a-half year-olds. Use the Table of Contents on the left to access these tutorials.

In assessing the child’s developmental level, the examiner must know the age when key social, motor, and language skills are normally acquired. The normal neurological findings one would expect for a newborn are certainly different than a 2, 6 or 12-month-old infant.

Obtaining developmental milestones is an important reflection of the maturation of the child’s nervous system, and assessing development is an essential part of the pediatric neurological examination. Delay in obtaining developmental milestones and abnormal patterns of development are important indicators of underlying neurological disease.

This "Internet Accessible Tutorial for Medical Neuroscience in the Pediatric Neurologic Examination" is authoredby the University of Nebraska Medical Center (Paul D. Larsen, MD) and the University of Utah School of Medicine (Suzanne S. Stensaas, PhD).


ABOUT VIEWING MOVIES...

ONLINE VIEWING OF MOVIES:
Along with companion text, each of the 145 movies in the Pediatric Neurologil Exam can be viewed online in a small 320x240 frame size that works well if you have a limited bandwidth connection to the Internet or are using cellular service. Otherwise, you can view the movies online in a larger 640x480 size. Blue buttons next to each movie give you the options. You must download QuickTime to view movies online.
If your web browser fails to display the movies (even after downloading QuickTime) try a different web browser.

DOWNLOAD MOVIES:
If you prefer to download our movies for later viewing or for re-use, we offer four different video formats to meet your needs:

  • QuickTime, 320x240, Optimized for playback performance on any computer.
  • QuickTime, 640x480/640x360; High Quality MPEG-4, H.264 compression (good for Macintosh-based PowerPoint or Keynote presentation software, now captioned in English Closed Caption icon
  • Windows Media, 640x480/640x360; High Quality WinMedia v9 compression (good for Windows-based PowerPoint presentation software).
  • Mobile Devices & SmartPhones, MPEG-4 baseline compression for many portable devices.

ABOUT CLOSED CAPTIONS IN ENGLISH...

We are pleased to announce that as of November 2012 the QuickTime 640x480 versions of the movies now include closed captions in English. Complete instructions for turning captions ON or OFF are available from the page "HOW TO SHOW CLOSED CAPTIONS Closed Captions icon." There is also a link in the left-hand side Table of Contents.

Summarized below is the quick version of the instructions for turning captions ON or OFF:

  • VIEWING FROM THE WEBSITE: Any movie listed in a website page has three blue buttons: VIEW ONLINE SMALLER, VIEW ONLINE BIGGER "CC", and DOWNLOAD MOVIE.

    Viewing options for movies

    View Online Smaller
    View Online Bigger CCDownload Movie

    If you click the VIEW ONLINE BIGGER "CC" button, a larger sized movie opens in a new window. By default, the closed captions do not automatically show.
    • Simply right-mouse-click anywhere over the movie itself (or Control + Click with early versions of a Macintosh mouse).
    • From the sub-menu that appears, select "SHOW CLOSED CAPTIONING." Wait a few seconds for the captions to begin.
  • VIEWING IN QUICKTIME PLAYER AFTER DOWNLOADING A MOVIE: If you download one of our movies, and choose the QuickTime 640x480/640x360 size, the downloaded movie can be viewed directly in Apple's QuickTime Player. To reveal the closed captions:
    • Select the player's menu item named "VIEW."
    • Then select "SHOW CLOSED CAPTIONING."
    • Please be sure you are using Apple's QuickTime Player and not Windows Media Player. Our captions cannot be revealed when watching the movies with Windows Media Player.
  • MOBILE DEVICES: Additional instructions for revealing closed captions in mobile devices, such as iPhones and iPads, are found on the page "HOW TO SHOW CLOSED CAPTIONS Closed Caption icon."





ADDITIONAL RESOURCES...

ABOUT ADULT NEUROLOGIC EXAM...

A companion website to the Pediatric Neurological Examination is the Adult Neurologic Exam: An Anatomical Approach, where the anatomical foundations of the neurologic exam are presented and examples of both normal and abnormal patient conditions are exhibited.

To access the Adult Neurologic Exam use link in the left-hand side Table of Contents.


ABOUT NEUROLOGIC CASES...

A complementary site attached to Neurologic Exam is Neurologic Cases. In a step-by-step method, Neurological Cases allows the learner to practice anatomical localization of neurologic pathologies. The six steps are...

  • (1) View the Case History;
  • (2) View the Neurological Exam;
  • (3) Select from the Checklist of Finding;
  • (4) Localize the Level(s) of the Lesion;
  • (5) Identify the damaged Structures; and
  • (6) View the Case Discussion.

To access NeuroLogic Cases, use the link in the left-hand Table of Contents.


ABOUT NEUROANATOMY VIDEO LAB: BRAIN DISSECTIONS...

An additional resource has been added to the Neurologic Exam website in 2013. Suzanne S. Stensaas, Ph.D., shares her years of expertise and teaching experience by showing us dissections of the human brain and its structures that are important for understanding neurological principles and localization (deciding where in the brain a disease process is occurring).

There are 14 videos in the Neuroanatomy Video Lab: Brain Dissections, and they are found on their own web page within the Neurologic Exam website. To access the page, use the link in the left-hand side Table of Contents (under ADDITIONAL RESOURCES).


ABOUT NEUROANATOMY ONLINE TUTORIAL: HYPERBRAIN...

An Online Neuroanatomy Tutorial, called "HyperBrain," has also been linked to the Neurologic Exam website. It is designed as a supplement to textbook and class learning or as a lab substitute when human specimens, slides and models are not available.

HyperBrain includes thousand of images and hundreds of linked illustrated glossary terms, as well as movies, quizzes and interactive animations. 

To access the website HyperBrain, use the link in the left-hand side Table of Contents (under ADDITIONAL RESOURCES).


ABOUT LUMBAR PUNCTURE TUTORIAL: THE PROCEDURE AND CSF ANALYSIS...

An online tutorial, called "Lumbar Puncture: The Procedure and CSF Analysis," is available from Paul D. Larsen, M.D., The University of Nebraska School of Medicine.

This tutorial is a comprehensive overview of the procedures related to lumbar punctures and the followup analysis of the cerebralspinal fluid. Topics include:

  • Indications
  • Contraindications
  • CSF Anatomy
  • CSF Physiology
  • Anatomy of LP
  • LP the Procedure
  • Pediatric Considerations
  • CSF Lab Evaluation
  • CSF in Selected Diseases
  • Complications of LP

To access the website Lumbar Puncture: The Procedure and CSF Analysis, use the link in the left-hand side Table of Contents (under ADDITIONAL RESOURCES).
