Neuroanatomy Atlas

  • New Assignment: Provided by Supervisor

Begin to create an atlas that integrates the embryonic staging as well as the development of cranial nerve morphology. This is expected to be built throughout the summer. To be done collaboratively between Malisha and Reuben.


Here is a list of the articles we will began to extract and collate the appropriate images and information from:

  • I continued to work on wikieducator focusing on generating tables, internal links/external links, uploading pictures from the computer and practising some of the techniques learnt the day before. We had a discussion on different licenses including copyright and confidentiality . We then got briefed on our new benchmark, creating an embryology atlas to aid our dissections during the lab sessions. The instructions are above--Malisha Hettiarachchi 15:34, 18 November 2010 (EST).


  • I completed tutorial 4 on the wikieducator site--Reuben Cutfield 20:11, 30 November 2010 (EST)
