Journal of Biocommunication


JBC announces Issue 41-2, 2017. In the feature article: Visualizing the Neurobiology of Trauma by Sarah Kim, Leila Lax, Dana Ross, et al, the authors evaluate 2D animations in a case-based eLearning module. Complexities of post-traumatic stress disorder are difficult to teach, talk about, and visually portray. Results of this study elucidate effective design dimensions of graphic narratives, keywords, and animations. Visual works are displayed in the Showcase: Sue Seif, Gallery: 2016 & 2017 BioImages Winners. JBC is free to read - no login required.

Physicians, lawyers, and plumbers are board certified, what about you?
