Gopalan, Chaya – Advances in Physiology Education, 2019
Flipped teaching (FT) has caught educators' attention due to its success in engaging students through pre- and in-class activities. To learn if FT improved student performance, scores from the quizzes and exams of a fully flipped classroom with retrieval exercises were compared with those of five semesters of traditional lecture-based [unflipped…

Versteeg, Marjolein; Wijnen-Meijer, Marjo; Steendijk, Paul – Advances in Physiology Education, 2019
Misconceptions about physiology are a major threat to accurate scientific and clinical reasoning in medical education. Awareness is often mentioned as a prerequisite to achieve conceptual understanding; however, students are frequently unaware of their incorrect understanding. We explored the multitier approach as a tool to obtain insight into…

Teixeira, André L.; Samora, Milena; Vianna, Lauro C. – Advances in Physiology Education, 2019
The cardiovascular responses to exercise are mediated by several interactive neural mechanisms, including central command, arterial baroreflex, and skeletal muscle mechano- and metaboreflex. In humans, muscle metaboreflex activation can be isolated via postexercise ischemia (PEI), which increases sympathetic nerve activity and partially maintains…

Goodhead, Lauren K.; MacMillan, Frances M. – Advances in Physiology Education, 2019
The authors have experienced increasing demand from undergraduate students, particularly those in the early years of study, to be able to access more "test-style" material to help with revision, as well as guidance on how to approach their university assessments. With increased use of multiple-choice questions (MCQs) in university…

Kleiman, Amanda M.; Potter, Jennifer F.; Bechtel, Allison J.; Forkin, Katherine T.; Dunn, Lauren K.; Collins, Stephen R.; Lyons, Genevieve; Nemergut, Edward C.; Huffmyer, Julie L. – Advances in Physiology Education, 2019
With increasing medical knowledge, procedural, and diagnostic skills to learn, it is vital for educators to make the limited amount of teaching time available to students effective and efficient. Generative retrieval is an effective and efficient learning tool, improving long-term retention through the practice of retrieval from memory. Forty…

Luchi, Kelly Cristina Gavião; Cardozo, Lais Tono; Marcondes, Fernanda Klein – Advances in Physiology Education, 2019
The aim of this work is to describe the "Muscular System Game," created to assist in the teaching-learning process concerning the physiology of the muscular system, and to evaluate its effect on the learning of university students. Participating in this study were first-year undergraduate students of the pharmacy course (game group, n =…

Bintley, Helen L.; Bell, Alexander; Ashworth, Rachel – Advances in Physiology Education, 2019
Evidence shows that biomedical knowledge is more effectively taught within the medical curriculum by teaching in context, to facilitate learning transfer. The purpose of the present study was to evaluate the effect of combining high-technology simulation and physiology teaching on medical student learning and experience. First-year medical…

Langdon, Jody; Botnaru, Diana T.; Wittenberg, Megan; Riggs, Amy Jo; Mutchler, Jessica; Syno, Matthew; Caciula, Manuela C. – Advances in Physiology Education, 2019
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of different metacognitive interventions on knowledge and regulation of cognition, as well as academic performance (i.e., exam and final grades) in three sections of an undergraduate human anatomy and physiology course. All targeted classes were randomly assigned to one of three groups…

Faggioni, Thaís; Ferreira, Natiele Carla da Silva; Lopes, Renato Matos; Fidalgo-Neto, Antonio Augusto; Cotta-de-Almeida, Vinicius; Alves, Luiz Anastacio – Advances in Physiology Education, 2019
The use of computers as a pedagogical resource is currently on the rise. In the case of immunology, students present difficulties in visualizing molecular phenomena. Thus the use of animations and simulations available on the internet might facilitate the learning of complex immunological concepts. In this context, it is important to map and…

Zhang, Xiao-Min; Yu, Jian-Yun; Yang, Yuan; Feng, Cui-Peng; Lyu, Jing; Xu, Shi-Lian – Advances in Physiology Education, 2019
A small private online course (SPOC) supports blended learning on a small scale, enabling students to have a more comprehensive and deeper learning experience. It also provides instructors with a flexible and feasible model to better understand the students' learning needs and to supervise students' learning behaviors. In this study, we adopted…

Eckel, Julia; Zavaritskaya, Olga; Schüttpelz-Brauns, Katrin; Schubert, Rudolf – Advances in Physiology Education, 2019
Recently, medical students' scientific thinking skills have been identified as an important issue in medical education. Scientific thinking cannot be imparted in conventional lectures, but rather requires actively involving students. We modified a practical course in physiology. A study was designed to test whether the new course fosters…

Olson, Jay; Rinehart, Jim; Spiegel, Jacqueline Jordan; Al-Nakkash, Layla – Advances in Physiology Education, 2019
A variety of medical simulators have been developed over recent years for students of all medical professions. These simulators serve to teach basic science concepts, advanced clinical skills, as well as empathy and student confidence. This study aimed to understand the students' perception of the integration of high-fidelity simulation exercises…

Vázquez-García, Mario – Advances in Physiology Education, 2018
The present study examined the relationship between second-year medical students' group performance and individual performance in a collaborative-learning environment. In recent decades, university professors in the scientific and humanistic disciplines have successfully put into practice different modalities of collaborative approaches to…

Robinson, Philip G.; Newman, David; Reitz, Cara L.; Vaynberg, Lena Z.; Bahga, Dalbir K.; Levitt, Morton H. – Advances in Physiology Education, 2018
The purpose of this study is to see whether a large drawing of a nephron helped medical students in self-directed learning groups learn renal physiology, histology, and pharmacology before discussing clinical cases. The end points were the grades on the renal examination and a student survey. The classes in the fall of 2014 and 2015 used the…

García-Vázquez, Francisco A.; Romar, Raquel; Gadea, Joaquín; Matás, Carmen; Coy, Pilar; Ruiz, Salvador – Advances in Physiology Education, 2018
Over recent decades, education has increasingly focused on student-centered learning. Guided practices represent a new way of learning for undergraduate students of physiology, whereby the students turn into teacher-students and become more deeply involved in the subject by preparing and teaching a practical (laboratory) class to their peers. The…
