It is what we think we know already that often prevents us from learning. (Claude Bernard)
With a new flu season upon us, vaccination is a timely topic. Recent research suggests that the time of day at which we receive our vaccination may influence it's effectiveness. At midday, CD8 T cells may respond more strongly than at other times of day.
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. There are a bunch of 1-day regional workshops scattered all over the continent. There's probably one near you coming up this year (or next)!
New evidence suggests that there is a population of neurons that actively erase old, unimportant memories during REM sleep. Hopefully, your memories of past episodes of this podcast will be preserved (as well as the date of my birthday).
Vaping is a timely topic, considering the emergence of vaping-induced lung injury and other vaping-related conditions. Discussing the news about vaping, which is frequently updated, is appropriate in the A&P course. Following the story over the course of a year may helps students better understand human science.
The Master of Science in Human Anatomy & Physiology Instruction—the MS-HAPI—is a graduate program for A&P teachers. A combination of science courses (enough to qualify you to teach at the college level) and courses in contemporary instructional practice, this program helps you power up your teaching. Kevin Patton is a faculty member in this program. Check it out!
HAPS recently released its revised Learning Outcomes for A&P. It's a significant revision, with many improvements. Kevin discusses some of the changes and gives advice on how to navigate and use them in your course.
