Overview: This module involves a short 15 minute demonstration and teaching session about neural pathways underlying a specific disorder utilizing the iCard with images of the brain drawn from the 3D Brain app. This is followed by paired role-plays where each participant uses the iCard and knowledge gained from the demonstration to explain the neural systems underlying a specific disorder to a patient based on a vignette. Each role-player get the opportunity to be the doctor and is able to experience and reflect on the different styles and techniques used.
This can be done with a live demonstration and teaching session for any disorder or domain of brain function.
