Good lecture.
By Duong L. on 17. October 2020 for Arterial Supply of the Spinal Cord

This lecture has solved all my problems about spinal cord.

By Alexis Daniel A. on 09. October 2020 for Spinal Cord

He doesn't explain enough the pyramidal tracts and the extrapyramidal tracts.

Simple and Concise
By Dipti N. on 25. June 2020 for Spinal Cord

The lecture was simple. However, way too concise. Not all tracts covered and levels could have being discussed a little more. But my basics got clear.Can use as a reference to study spinal cord in depth

Space to improve
By Haichuan H. on 17. March 2020 for Lesions and Diseases of the Spinal Cord: Brown-Séquard Syndrome and Tabes Dorsalis

I feel the anatomy lectures are rather "static" like simply reading the narrative or bulletin points to the audience. Instead, I think the anatomy lectures, especially as we are not learning by a cadaver to gain the tactile feedbacks, might be better designed in a more inviting/ interactive way. Bringing in more pathological relevance, e.g. showing schema/ video/ autopsy would be largely helpful. Or to the minimum, highlighting the knowledge of "high yield" and compare them on an anatomic picture/schema may also improve the learning experience of these topics. I like many Lecturio lectures nonetheless, but I think anatomy, and especially the neural anatomy lectures has a lot of space to improve in such way. Thanks.
