  1. I find this web and app resource from Cincinnati Hospital extremely useful to teach students/ trainees and during parent consultations to explain the condition in 3D (saves me the embarrassment from drawing!) Weblink Link to play store to download the Android version.

  2. An astoundingly lyrical introduction of "Spitzer's Laws of Neonatology" written by none other than the great neonatal-web pioneer Ray Duncan resonates like this: “Spitzer's Laws have been handed down to us from the very dawn of Neonatology, or perhaps one should say from the meconium-stained birth of our fine specialty. In those days, men were men, women were women, giants walked the earth, computers were the size of moving vans, and neonatology fellows were on call every other night but still found time for basic research on prostaglandins in fetal sheep. The subtler interpretations and corollaries of these laws have been lost in the mists of time, but they still contain useful kernels of truth for the post-modern pediatric house officer”. http://www.neonatology.org/pearls/spitzer.html This link culminates with a fascinating communication by Spitzer himself dated back to January 18, 1997. And of course here goes the so called tongue-in-cheek study Tony Ryan as well: https://www.nature.com/articles/jp2013103 ending up with the famous Oscar Wilde quote: ‘Experience is merely the name men give to their mistakes’.

  3. The "PEDIATRIC NEUROLOGIC EXAM: A NEURODEVELOPMENTAL APPROACH" uses over 145 video demonstrations and narrative descriptions in an online tutorial. It presents the neurological examination of the pediatric patient as couched within the context of neurodevelopmental milestones for Newborns, 3 month-olds, 6 month-olds, 12 month-olds, 18 month-olds, and 2-and-a-half year-olds. Use the Table of Contents on the left to access these tutorials. In assessing the child’s developmental level, the examiner must know the age when key social, motor, and language skills are normally acquired. The normal neurological findings one would expect for a newborn are certainly different than a 2, 6 or 12-month-old infant. Obtaining developmental milestones is an important reflection of the maturation of the child's nervous system, and assessing development is an essential part of the pediatric neurological examination. Delay in obtaining developmental milestones and abnormal patterns of development are important indicators of underlying neurological disease. This "Internet Accessible Tutorial for Medical Neuroscience in the Pediatric Neurologic Examination" is authored by the University of Nebraska Medical Center. College of Medicine (Paul D. Larsen, MD) and the University of Utah School of Medicine (Suzanne S. Stensaas, PhD).

  4. A collective of the world’s leading newborn brain care providers have come together and launched the Newborn Brain Society (NBS). This new organization is focused on advancing newborn brain care through international multidisciplinary collaboration, education, and innovation. With founding leadership representation from prestigious programs such as Yale, Duke, Harvard, and UCSF, international representation from Canada, Brazil, and Ireland, and parent collaboration through the Hope for HIE Foundation, the goal is to bring together the resources of many programs to move the field forward in previously unattainable ways.
