Type of Research Project
- Basic science
What is the background of the project?
Teaching and learning 3-D anatomy have traditionally been done with 2-D media and cadavers. The limitations of 2-D media are obvious. Cadavers are good for conveying 3-D relationships but have problems. Computer-based 3-D models cannot replace cadavers but they can address some of the problems.
What is the aim of the project?
Our overall aim is to develop high-quality, open-source interactive 3-D models that can be delivered over the Web.
What techniques and methods are used?
-
What is the role of the student?
- The student will observe the practical experiments but will be highly involved in the analysis of the results
- The tasks of the student will be performed on his/her own
- The tasks will be done under supervision
What are the tasks expected to be accomplished by the student?
-
Will there be any theoretical teaching provided (preliminary readings, lectures, courses, seminars etc)
-
What is expected from the student at the end of the research exchange? What will be the general outcome of the student?
- No specific outcome is expected
What skills are required of the student? Is there any special knowledge or a certain level of studies needed?
None
Are there any legal limitations in the student’s involvement
No
