New Video-Based Resource Subscriptions: Acland Anatomy, JoVE Neuroscience

Due to high demand, the library has added two new video resources to the collection just in time for the start of the school year.

ACLAND ANATOMY

This video atlas was originally intended to be used by individual medical and dental students. Because of its realism, simple language, and three-dimensional quality, the Video Atlas has become popular with students and teachers in many other fields and also with people not on a professional learning path who are looking for information about human anatomy.

JoVE NEUROSCIENCE

Part of the JoVE video journal suite, JoVE Neuroscience includes techniques from a wide variety of fields, focusing on those intended to lend insight into the structure, function, physiology and pathophysiology of the central and peripheral nervous systems.
