Molson Medical Informatics Sampler

A Media Sampler showcasing illustrations, animations and build overlays designed for the enhanced version of the McGill Basis of Medicine Notes.

Introduction

The McGill Molson Medical Informatics Project is committed to enhancing medical teaching and learning through the integration of technology, art and pedagogy.

This conversion of teaching material to electronic format has required multiple iterations. The following link demonstrates the evolution of this process from the perspective of the development of multimedia images: Before and After

Illustrations

Static illustrations employ colour and design to help elucidate concepts or clarify anatomy.

Figure 1

From Dr. G. Mandl: Lecture on The Autonomic Nervous System

The precise location of the autonomic ganglia differs for sympathetic and parasympathetic divisions.

For the sympathetic system, synaptic contact between pre- and post-ganglionic neurons frequently takes place within the para-vertebral ganglia located in pairs right next to (para = near, beside) the spinal cord segments, forming neural chains that run up and down both sides of the spinal cord (sympathetic trunks).

Builds

In a media element we call a "build", a complex image is divided into various layers in order to isolate certain elements or aspects of the image at a time.
