Description of project
Localizing a neurological lesion requires an understanding of the human nervous system and complex crisscrossing paths. It is a difficult skill for UCSF medical students and residents to master, and even for non-neurologist attending physicians to maintain, especially for who do not use the skill regularly. However, we believe that some of the complex thought process behind localizing a neurological exam can be captured and executed by a handheld application that can aid both students learning the skill and clinicians providing patient care.
