Why we should encourage A&P students to say the difficult terms out loud before reading. Will we ever pin down the number of genes in the human genome? Get a free book of brain facts from the Society for Neuroscience. Please help Kevin extend the reach of TAPP Radio! Summer is a good time to binge listen all the episodes of this podcast, perhaps enjoying the beverage of your choice (mine is iced tea...unsweet).

(0:43) New research increases the number of coding genes in the human genome up from around 19,000 or so genes to just over 21,000 genes.
(4:12) Brain Facts book: great summary of basic concepts of neuroscience (with great pictures).
(6:50) I ask your help to spread the news and share this podcast with others who might be interested. Or complete strangers. Okay, maybe just folks you know who are actual A&P teachers or have related interests.
(10:23) It sounds wacky, for sure, but reading complex terms out loud before reading the textbook can helps speed up reading and improve comprehension.
(20:57) Even if you've already heard them all, it's worth your while to listen again, starting at Episode 1 and working your way through. If you know you've missed some previous episodes, that's an even better reason to binge!
