Both short and detailed -- a good mix
By Alex S. on 29. July 2018 for Brachial Plexus – Axilla and Brachial Plexus

Dr. Pickering pointed out a few things that even my anatomy professor (who is excellent) did not. A very good lecture on the brachial plexus -- both short and detailed.

I found this lecture to be clear, concise and suitable as a complement to lectures, textbook and cadaver work. Could you make the diagrams and their labels a bit larger, as they are difficult to see on smartphone, and there is no zoom facility.
