Quotes from a Neurologist

The anti-Whipple.  Sometimes, the professors "get" what it's like to be a med student a little toooo well.

It was just like the Milgram experiments:

During our lecture on how to conduct a neurological exam, an ARS (audience-response system) question read, "What's your favorite cranial nerve?"  This was obviously more of an attendance question than knowledge-testing question, but interestingly enough (although besides the point), the vagus nerve won with a wide margin.  The professor (jokingly?) says, "This was actually a psychological test to see how much stress is created when you ask a group of med students a question with no right answer."  Sigh, he really does know us too well...
