Lumbar Nerves
By Astrocyte C. on 19. October 2017 for Somatic Nerves – Posterior Abdominal Wall

For the slide about the lumbar nerves, only subcostal (T12) is listed. It would be helpful to list other nerves, such as iliohypogastric (T?) and ilioinguinal (T?).

good lecture overall
By Edward K. on 27. August 2017 for Inguinal Canal – Abdominal Walls and Inguinal Canal

good lecture- lost a star because illustrations are in latin. I do appreciate latin is completely acceptable to use in the context of anatomy, but in practice nobody uses latin terms and it feels outdated and counter-productive to learn the latin nomenclature. It would be much easier to follow if everything was in english ; a small point but it did slow me down when following this lecture.
