The development of the neurons that are the foundation of our learning and memory.
Details: Development of the axon and dendritic arbors in cultured hippocampal neurons after 7 days in vitro. MAP2 staining (red) highlights the dendrites, while microtubule staining (green) reveals both the axons and dendrites in the field of view. Neurons at 2, 3, 5 and 7 days in vitro are represented in this image group.

I have my first A&P exam on tuesday. I feel like I know nothing. Is there any advice you can give for last minute cramming? Just too much information :(

Aagh, it’s been so long since I took A&P so I can’t give you any specific studying advice. That being said, here goes: use as many mnemonics as you can.  I remember using them and creating my own for A&P and through nursing school.  Only study for increments of time supposedly no more than an hour at a time then a break or you won’t absorb the material. I also liked to quiz myself and my study friends.  It helped me to learn if I had to teach or explain it to someone else.  I hope this helps, maybe some followers who have taken this more recently have some better tips?  Good luck!

Severe digital ischaemia

A 56-year-old woman with diabetes admitted with abdominal pain and in septic shock and had developed disseminated intravascular coagulation and cyanosis of toes and fingers. A necrotic gallbladder was the culprit. 

She made a good recovery, however, the lesions of the right hand and right foot progressively necrosed, and amputation was required on hospital day 15. She was discharged on hospital day 24.
