Why Winterize in Mid Winter?

3.5 minutes
We are now in a flu (influenza) season and on the verge of a coronavirus pandemic. Maybe we should have talked about this earlier, eh? But better late than never!

Learning From Past Epidemics and Pandemics

4 minutes
Back in the Spanish flu pandemic of 1918, St. Louis had a much lower impact than other major U.S. cities. The key was implementation of "social distancing," which we can implement in our personal lives—and in our courses.

Making Mistakes Teaching Anatomy & Physiology | Episode 63

 

Host Kevin Patton discusses the fact that mistakes in teaching anatomy & physiology happen—and that it's okay. And how to deal with the embarrassment. Also: how stress makes our hair turn gray and a newly discovered immune lymphocyte.

It's discouraging to make a mistake, but it's humiliating when you find out you're so unimportant that nobody noticed it. (Chuck Daly)

Stress Grays Our Hair

4.5 minutes

The leading cause of premature graying of hair in humans is teaching A&P. Not really. Perhaps. Just seeing if anybody actually reads these notes! But we do know that stress can do it. Here's the mechanism...

  • Stress speeds up hair greying process, science confirms: Fight-or-flight response nerves pump out hormone that wipes out pigmentation cells (news story) my-ap.us/3bPZ8s5
  • How the stress of fight or flight turns hair white (editorial summary from Nature) https://my-ap.us/2V8Pmeo
    Hyperactivation of sympathetic nerves drives depletion of melanocyte stem cells (research article from Nature) my-ap.us/2V7edPP
  • The five: factors that affect early greying (news feature) my-ap.us/2T5AmLI

New Type of Immune Cell

6 minutes

We know about B lymphocytes and T lymphocytes, right? What happens when we find a combination lymphocyte? A "CatDog" of lymphocytes?

  • Novel Type of Immune Cell Discovered in Type 1 Diabetes Patients (news feature) my-ap.us/2v1g1iN
  • A Public BCR Present in a Unique Dual-Receptor-Expressing Lymphocyte from Type 1 Diabetes Patients Encodes a Potent T Cell Autoantigen (research article from Cell) my-ap.us/2SZz453
