Simpson, Melanie Rae – Advances in Physiology Education, 2016
As a newcomer, the philosophical basis of systems biology seems intuitive and appealing, the underlying philosophy being that the whole of a living system cannot be completely understood by the study of its individual parts. Yet answers to the questions "What is systems biology?" and "What constitutes a systems biology approach in…

Walsh, Kieran – Advances in Physiology Education, 2016
There has been much recent commentary on integration in health care professional education. This commentary is of importance to physiology education as integration often touches on integration between preclinical and clinical sciences. There are different forms of integration, from horizontal to vertical to spiral, and different theories underpin…

Drummond, Gordon B.; Vowler, Sarah L. – Advances in Physiology Education, 2012
Most biological scientists conduct experiments to look for effects, and test the results statistically. One of the commonly used test is Student's t test. However, this test concentrates on a very limited question. The authors assume that there is no effect in the experiment, and then estimate the possibility that they could have obtained these…

Richardson, Daniel – Advances in Physiology Education, 2011
This opinion statement points out some of the considerations and pitfalls in using virtual reality computer programs in the teaching of life sciences. Emphasis is placed on the possibility of such programs leading to reductionist thinking including how reductionist thinking could foster the formation of misconceptions. Negative feedback is used as…

Morton, James P. – Advances in Physiology Education, 2009
In the sequel to their guidelines for reporting statistics in American Physiological Society journals, Curran-Everett and Benos highlighted that the initial guidelines of 2004 have had little effect on the statistical reporting practices of authors. In the present article, I suggest that the guidelines have also had little impact on both journal…

DiCarlo, Stephen E. – Advances in Physiology Education, 2009
Teachers often overrate the importance of their content and underrate their influence. However, students forget much of the content that they memorize. Thus, attempts to teach students all that they will need to know is futile. Rather, it is important that students develop an interest and love for lifelong learning. Inspiring and motivating…

Kibble, Jonathan D. – Advances in Physiology Education, 2009
The goal of this article is to reflect on the contemporary ethical standards that should be applied to the publication of physiology education research. As teachers, we are all education researchers to some degree but our appreciation of when and how regulatory requirements apply to our work is variable. A significant number of articles in…

Nordquist, Lina – Advances in Physiology Education, 2008
Life sciences can be complicated enough without getting into the names of all its Dalton-scale participants. For many students, composing a project plan or writing a paper is rather like learning a foreign language. In this article, the author argues that there is a linguistic jungle of science, and it may well discourage students from pursuing a…

Clase, Kari L.; Hein, Patrick W.; Pelaez, Nancy J. – Advances in Physiology Education, 2008
Physiology as a discipline is uniquely positioned to engage undergraduate students in interdisciplinary research in response to the 2006-2011 National Science Foundation Strategic Plan call for innovative transformational research, which emphasizes multidisciplinary projects. To prepare undergraduates for careers that cross disciplinary…

Jason, Hilliard – Advances in Physiology Education, 2007
Few medical faculty members are adequately prepared for their instructional responsibilities. Our educational traditions were established before we had research-based understandings of the teaching-learning process and before brain research began informing our understandings of how humans achieve lasting learning. Yet, there are several advantages…

Rasia-Filho, Alberto A. – Advances in Physiology Education, 2006
The terms "autonomous" or "vegetative" are currently used to identify one part of the nervous system composed of sympathetic, parasympathetic, and gastrointestinal divisions. However, the concepts that are under the literal meaning of these words can lead to misconceptions about the actual nervous organization. Some clear-cut examples indicate…
