1 | Adult Brain Neurogenesis
A recurring topic in this podcast, here’s some recent evidence for adult neurogenesis in the brain.
- A Common Embryonic Origin of Stem Cells Drives Developmental and Adult Neurogenesis (recent research published in Cell) my-ap.us/2CS0qTk
- Researchers discover the source of new neurons in brain’s hippocampus: Findings extend understanding of how a continuous supply of neurons throughout life is connected with learning and memory (summary of the research) my-ap.us/2CZPaUU

3 | Finding Media for Teaching A&P
Adam Rich sparks another look at Barbara Waxer’s advice in Episode 28 about finding and using media in our teaching. Barbara’s “bonus” list of collections has now been added to a new page at The A&P Professor website. And you are asked to contribute!

5 | Eponyms Again!
After recalling that in the previous episode, Kevin forgot that when discussing Broca’s massive sideburns, he could have mentioned that the term “sideburn” is itself an eponym. Then Mike Pascoe calls in with a tip and triggers additional conversation about how to handle eponyms in our teaching.

6 | Sponsored by HAPI Online Graduate Program
The Master of Science in Human Anatomy & Physiology Instruction—the MS-HAPI—is graduate program for A&P teachers. A combination of science courses (enough to qualify you to teach at the college level) and courses in instructional practice, this program helps you power up your teaching. Kevin Patton is a faculty member in this program. Check it out!
7 | Personal Names and Pronouns
Learning, using, and properly pronouncing students names is worth the effort to connect with learners personally and build mutual trust and respect. Likewise, introducing our own preferred gender pronouns opens the door for including the personal pronoun preference of student (should that be important to them) and can help connect with our students in ways that improve the learning environment.
