Videos, Animations, Images…

Atrial_myocyte_thumb AccessMedicine just added a new animated video to the online version of Goodman & Gilman’s Pharmacological Basis of Therapeutics. It’s a quick visual overview of atrial myocyte electrophysiology, and it’s part of a small but growing collection of animations of concepts from the book. It’s also a reminder of all the other great stuff on AccessMedicine: medical videos, images to download for presentations, self-assessments for the USMLE, and of course constantly updated versions of classic textbooks that you can access anywhere, from any computer with internet access.

And just in case you’re wondering, we do still have a print copy of Goodman & Gilman – it’s on reserve behind the circulation desk, call number QV 4 G653 2006. No videos on those pages though!
