We’ve blogged about iPods in the hospital before. Now, with a new atlas of the CNS from Sylvius, educational iPods are heading into medical schools as well:
SylviusVG, iPod Edition is a visual glossary of the human brain and spinal cord containing information on more than 400 neuroanatomical structures and terms.
For each term, Sylvius features:
· a description of the structure’s location and function
· a detailed image and text description of the image
· an audio pronunciation
· links to related terms and structures
The package costs as much as an online music album, and works through the Notes menu system. The only audio supplied is for pronunciation; the rest is text and pictures for hundreds of neuroanatomy terms.
