After nourishment, shelter, and companionship, stories are the thing we need most in the world. (Philip Pullman)

 

1 | Measles and Immune Amnesia

8.5 minutes

Measles (MV) is very contagious and can be deadly, even though some cases are mild to moderate. However, it can also "erase" some or all of our immune memory!

3 | Bone Growth Update

4 minutes

How we understand growth of a long bone at the epiphyseal plate may be changing a bit. Check out the audio and the links below to find out more.

5 | The Wallenda Model of Homeostasis

26 minutes

Multiple models of homeostasis may be needed for students to fully understand the important core concept of homeostasis. Here, Kevin describes an analogy he uses—a person on a highwire. Listen to why he calls this model The Wallenda Model and find out how he uses it to better understand homeostasis.

    • The Wallendas are a family of highwire artists famous for very high/long "sky walks" and human pyramids on the wire
      • Karl Wallenda, the most famous of the clan, died from a fall off the wire during a sky walk
      • The famous 7-person pyramid was also marred by a tragic fall
    • Elements of The Wallenda Model
      • Variable: position of body
      • Set point: directly over the wire
      • Sensors: nerve receptors (eyes, inner ears, muscle stretch receptors, etc.)
      • Integrator: brain
      • Effectors: skeletal muscles
    • Where to send students:

A few years ago, the city council of Monza, Italy, barred pet owners from keeping goldfish in curved bowls... saying that it is cruel to keep a fish in a bowl with curved sides because, gazing out, the fish would have a distorted view of reality. But how do we know we have the true, undistorted picture of reality? (Stephen Hawking)

7 | Fishbowl Model of Homeostasis

12.5 minute

Multiple models of homeostasis may be needed for students to fully understand the important core concept of homeostasis. Kevin uses the typical thermostat model (feedback loop or engineered control system) along with several other models. Here, he describes the fishbowl model of homeostasis.

fishbowl model

  • Optional equipment for demonstration/storytelling
  • A physiologist's view of homeostasis (article in Advances in Physiological Education related to the HAPS workshop I mentioned, this paper proposes a particular way to represent homeostasis in a diagram) my-ap.us/2HSJL5b
  • BONUS: The TAPP APP has a sample handout you can use with your students (app only)

For once, maybe someone will call me "Sir," without adding "...you're making a scene."
(Homer Simpson)

 

1 | Right and Left, Oh My!

3.5 minutes

In Episode 43 (the previous full episode), I mistakenly swapped my "left" and "right" when describing situs inversus in a body donor from the 1800s. Oops. I corrected it later in the audio file, but the corrected audio may not play in all platforms.

This mistake does bring up how easy it is to get even the simple stuff wrong without realizing that's what's coming out of our mouth! Yikes.

3 | Semi-Identical Twins

6.5 minutes

Semi-identical twinning, where two sperm and one egg unite to form two offspring, both sharing 100% identical maternal genome but not sharing an identical paternal genome. Also called sesquizygotic twinning (a term not used in the podcast), there's more to it than Kevin could discuss here, so check out the resources:

  • Semi-identical twins 'identified for only the second time' (plain English summary) my-ap.us/2WLupnS
  • Molecular Support for Heterogonesis Resulting in Sesquizygotic Twinning (full article from New England Journal of Medicine; includes diagrams and video) my-ap.us/2WPsBdt

6| Stickers? Really?

6.5 minutes

stickersYeah, kindergarten teachers put stickers on student papers to motivate them. But this minimalist form of "gamification" can help motivate college and university students, too. Try it! It's cheap and easy. If it doesn't motivate your students, at least it will make your course's culture a bit more fun and positive, right?

8 | How Our Students Address Us

17.5 minutes

A conversation with Mike Pascoe got me to thinking about different preferences we have for how we want our students to address us. Professor? Mr. or Ms.? Doctor? or just Kevin. As long as they don't call me late for dinner, eh?

There's more to this question than meats the eye (and ear)!

  • Some different takes on this:
    • Do You Make Them Call You ‘Professor’? | Why I began to rethink my views on classroom decorum (opinion article) my-ap.us/2WQFYue
    • Doctor, Professor or 'Hey, You'? (opinon article)my-ap.us/2WMBFQD
  • Weigh in now (while it's still up) on Twitter: What do you prefer that your students call you?
