Host Kevin Patton discusses the many ways case studies can be used in teaching, why they enhance learning, and where to find them. Also, updates in factors underlying left-handedness, functional maps of the brain, and reversing biological age, plus some tips on responding to student questions. 00:44 | Left-handedness 02:54 | Responding to Students 22:30 | Sponsored by HAPS 22:59 | Mapping Brain Functions 26:55 | Sponsored by AAA 27:14 | Reversing Age 30:32 | Sponsored by HAPI Online Graduate Program 31:18 | Case Studies in Teaching A&P 47:59 | Staying Connected If you cannot see or activate the audio player click here.

(W.C. Fields)   1 | Left-Handedness 2 minutes A new report suggests that left-handedness, which one in ten of us exhibit, is partially influenced by genes. One effect of these genes is to change the structure of our body cells' cytoskeleton. Of course, a lot more work has to be done. By left-handers and right-handers alike. Left-handed DNA found - and it changes brain structure (brief summary article) my-ap.us/2AfTLAQ Handedness, language areas and neuropsychiatric diseases: insights from brain imaging and genetics (research article) my-ap.us/2AbWACQ     2 | Responding to Students 19.5 minutes Half of students don't read the syllabus, don't read directions, don't listen to us—which can produce some frustrations when they reach out to us with questions that they already have the answer for. Somewhere nearby them. Kevin gives some tips on how to to handle these with grace and ease (taking barely any time or effort), as well as advice on heading them off before they are asked.

Anatomy & Physiology Society  theAPprofessor.org/haps     4 | Mapping Brain Functions 4 minutes We've all see various functional maps of the human brain. But once you get down to the smaller regions, or parcels, it gets weird. Beyond a certain resolution, things are very flexible. Because functions of tiny parcels vary with the state of that region of the brain in any given moment, we will probably not be able to produce a high-resolution functional map of the brain—even for any one individual. There is no single functional atlas even for a single individual: Parcellation of the human brain is state dependent (research article) my-ap.us/2Aighc0 Brodmann areas (maps and explanation) my-ap.us/2Qc2COA     5 | Sponsored by AAA 0.5 minutes A searchable transcript for this episode, as well as the captioned audiogram of this episode, are sponsored by the American Association for Anatomy (AAA) at anatomy.org.

(John Dewey)   1 | Special Series of Episodes 4.5 minutes This and the next few episodes will be super, spectacular, and special. So I'm calling them "specials" just like the grownups in the media world do. These specials are single-topic-ish recasts of some of the major themes from the past 18 months of this podcast. A mix of old and new. But mostly, the classic stuff that we'll benefit from reviewing and reflecting upon. The general topic of this special episode revolves a recurring theme of this podcast: teaching as a form of storytelling     2 | Storytelling in the A&P Course 15 minutes Kevin explains why he thinks storytelling is the heart of effective teaching, especially in the A&P course. He outlines the “storytelling persona”; making sure there is a beginning, middle, and end to our stories, applying storytelling to both lectures and the entire course, using drama, conflict and resolution, and other techniques. First released as Segment 3 in Storytelling is the Heart of Teaching A&P | Episode 12 Educational Uses of Digital Storytelling (website with many resources) my-ap.us/2uwk6ul Crash Course in Storytelling (book on the basics of storytelling) amzn.to/2GprR6B Long Story Short: The Only Storytelling Guide You’ll Ever Need (book; the title says it all) amzn.to/2GYXm8Q   3 | Teachers vs. Robots | AI in Teaching 2 minutes Artificial intelligence (AI) is seen by some as the emerging technology to replace teachers. Really? How should we respond? In Episode 47, I suggest that developing the uniquely human (and humane) skills—such as storytelling—is our best strategy. This is a clip taken from the middle of that segment. First heard as part of Segment 1 of The Human Microbial System | Episode 47 3 Necessary Skills for Educators in the Era of A.I. (Article posted by Raj Shah at Getting Smart) my-ap.us/2ZUdjFo How Storytelling Works in the Brain and Why We Need Stories (another post at Getting Smart) my-ap.us/2ZUuhUh Storytelling is the Heart of Teaching A&P | Episode 12 Actin & Myosin – A Love Story | Episode 15   4 | Sponsored by HAPS 0.5 minutes The Human Anatomy & Physiology Society (HAPS) is a sponsor of this podcast.  You can help appreciate their support by clicking the link below and checking out the many resources and benefits found there.

Anatomy & Physiology Society  theAPprofessor.org/haps     5 | Playfulness & Seriousness 14 minutes Segment 1 explained Kevin's view that effective A&P teachers are good storytellers. This segment "continues the story" by discussing analogies. Analogies can be stories that help students understand complex concepts. Sometimes, they are most effective when they are playful, which helps engage students and makes the stories easy to remember. Kevin relates his use of "phosphorylation frogs" in a story that can be referred to every time ATP generation comes up in the course. What are the pros and cons of using analogies? First released as Segment 3 of Playful & Serious Is the Perfect Combo for A&P | Episode 13 Refers to Storytelling is the Heart of Teaching A&P | TAPP Radio 12 (where the story of storytelling in A&P begins) Frog pop-ups (toys similar to those described by Kevin in this episode) amzn.to/2J7o2Vw Books by John Dewey (book sales help defray podcast expenses) amzn.to/2JaAQdF Metaphors & Analogies: Power Tools for Teaching Any Subject (book that addresses many issues, including English-language learners) amzn.to/2E8MIcH   6 | Sponsored by AAA 0.5 minute The searchable transcript for this episode, as well as the captioned audiogram of this episode, are sponsored by The American Association of Anatomists (AAA) at anatomy.org.

(Philip Pullman)   1 | Measles and Immune Amnesia 8.5 minutes Measles (MV) is very contagious and can be deadly, even though some cases are mild to moderate. However, it can also "erase" some or all of our immune memory! Measles and Immune Amnesia (article from American Society for Microbiology) my-ap.us/2F0Chew Watch: The tricks that make measles so infectious (video you can use in your class) my-ap.us/2EWugar Notes In this segment, the necessary step of memory cells producing effector cells (that engage pathogens) in subsequent exposures to the "remembered" pathogen is glossed over for simplicity of discussion. Presumably, the "live" attenuated MV used in vaccination triggers formation of memory cells against MV without causing the full-blown infection that impairs immune memory of other pathogens.     2 | Sponsored by HAPS 0.5 minutes The Human Anatomy & Physiology Society (HAPS) is a sponsor of this podcast.  You can help appreciate their support by clicking the link below and checking out the many resources and benefits found there.

Here, Kevin describes an analogy he uses—a person on a highwire. Listen to why he calls this model The Wallenda Model and find out how he uses it to better understand homeostasis. The Wallendas are a family of highwire artists famous for very high/long "sky walks" and human pyramids on the wire Karl Wallenda, the most famous of the clan, died from a fall off the wire during a sky walk The famous 7-person pyramid was also marred by a tragic fall NOTE: The balance pole is normally up to about 30 pounds or so. The 80-pound figure given in this episode would be unusually heavy. Elements of The Wallenda Model Variable: position of body Set point: directly over the wire Sensors: nerve receptors (eyes, inner ears, muscle stretch receptors, etc.) Integrator: brain Effectors: skeletal muscles Where to send students: lionden.com/homeostasis.htm A summary of all three models Kevin uses to teach homeostasis Includes photos and links to videos Survival Guide for Anatomy & Physiology lionden.com/tips-survival-guide.htm Includes a short, illustrated summary of The Wallenda Model of Homeostasis     6 | Sponsored by HAPI Online Graduate Program 0.5 minute The Master of Science in Human Anatomy & Physiology Instruction—the MS-HAPI—is graduate program for A&P teachers.
