WinkingSkull.com: Human Anatomy Study Aid
Source: Thieme (open access)
Description: "Thieme Publishers launched WinkingSkull.com in January of 2008. From Boston to Berlin to Beijing, WinkingSkull.com is rapidly becoming a global phenomenon as interest grows from around the world. This website is a free, interactive resource for medical students and people interested in science.
"An intuitive website design allows quick access to the region of interest. Users can turn labels on or off while studying. A testing feature allows users to drag and drop labels onto the anatomical illustrations while being timed. Users may view test results instantly to measure their proficiency of the material and compare scores with other users.
"In June of 2008, WinkingSkull.com was revised to optimize the studying and testing experience and to facilitate cross-referencing to the newly published Atlas of Anatomy. Here's a quick introduction to some of the new features you'll find once you browse the updated website:
  • "Stunning illustrations taken from Atlas of Anatomy
  • "Regions navigation modeled after the atlas
  • "New technology on the study pages that enables you to magnify images with a zoom function and allows more flexibility when you're on the testing pages (you can now view answer choices one at a time or all together and change your answers)
"Some of these new features require you to have a browser plugin installed called Silverlight. You may install it now or wait to be prompted to do so while you're on the site."
