The aim of this study was to define the effects of glutamate release on cell death in an eleven vessel rat occlusion model. Male Sprague-Dawley rats (250-350g) were used for the 11 vessel occlusion ischemic model, which was induced by a 5- and 10-min transient occlusion. During the surgical procedure, the extracellular glutamate concentration was measured(More)
PURPOSE Most students choose the same option to questions in course evaluation surveys. Identical answers to each question render the results unreliable. The purpose of this study was to analyze the trend of medical student' consistent responses to course evaluations. METHODS The data of this study were the results of a course evaluation over 3 years(More)
Vertical light-emitting diodes (VLEDs) have attracted considerable attention owing to their improved thermal, electrical, and optical performance compared to conventional LEDs. To fabricate VLEDs, a bonding technique is required following laser lift-off. Eutectic bonding techniques are preferred owing to their low-heat mechanism and production safety.(More)
PURPOSE To determine whether disclosure of scoring rubric for objective basic clinical skills can improve the scores on the objective structured clinical examination (OSCE) in medical students. METHODS Clinical performance score results of one university medical students (study group, n=345) were compared to those of another university (control group,(More)

강의 내용에 대한 해박한 지식은 좋은 강의를 위한 전제 조 건이다. 그러나 그것만으로는 충분하지 않다. 강의중 학생들 을 집중시키고 학습을 자극하는 분위기를 조성하는 것도 교 수자의 몫이다. 교수자는 이를 위해서 언어적 및 비언적 의사 소통 방법을 모두 동원해야 한다. 의과대학 수업평가에 관한 연구에 의하면[1], 의과대학 학 생들은 교수자의 ‘강의 전달 능력’을 수업평가의 가장 중요한 요소로 꼽았다. 눈 마주침, 표정, 제스처, 자세, 목소리의 특 성, 말투, 빠르기 등 교수자의 비언어적 의사소통 방식에 따라 서 수업의 성공 여부가 크게 좌우된다는 것이다. 교수자의 이야기 방식, 즉 비언어적 의사소통은 교육 과정 에서 매우 중요하다.(More)
