Neuroscience for Pre-Clinical Students

Contributor: LeClair

Publisher: Virginia Tech Publishing

Neuroscience for Pre-Clinical Students is designed to fill a gap in undergraduate medical education (UME) and support preclerkship education in the content area of biochemical neuroscience. Its content is aligned to USMLE(r) (United States Medical Licensing Examination) providing coverage of topics including: neuroenergetics, neurotransmitters, neuropeptides, and amino acid metabolism and heritable disorders of degradation. Unlike traditional textbooks, the organization of this resource is driven by curricular structure, rather than subject area. As the format and design of UME differs across many programs, this resource is purposefully brief and flexible, allowing for rapid adaptation across programs. The resource is organized into small chapters that can be used to support student preparation in any arrangement. The sections are not intended to be all-inclusive, but rather primers for applied content delivery. Similarly, clinical context is only briefly discussed allowing the user to apply the basic content in the clinical context used by their specific curricular structure.

A Practical Approach to Understanding Music Theory

Contributor: Brooks

Publisher: University of North Alabama

A Practical Approach to Understanding Music Theory is a textbook designed for the non-music performance major or music business/audio engineer who needs to professionally interface with musicians without needing to write or compose music. The material is designed around a spiral learning model in which a very simple straightforward concept is introduced, defined and explained. From this point and forward the book adds one element of music theory after another until a broad base of musical understanding and application is achieved. Even though the spiral learning model has a linear approach, the book is also laid out in a manner that any music student or hobbyist may treat it as a research manual to search out specific explanations of musical situations they encounter. This text is meant to be an all-inclusive explanation of how music is created, graphically distributed and performed for those who are not majoring in music theory, performance or education. It is aimed at those who are seeking a career in audio engineering, music business, artist representation, minoring in music, teaching lessons in a local community or someone who just wants to learn to play and understand music on a deeper level.
