BrainWaves: A Neurology Podcast

Apr 12, 2018

Ever hit your elbow in just the wrong spot, and you get that strange shooting sensation down your arm? Yep, that's your ulnar nerve. It's telling you to stop hitting yourself. But the elbow is not the only place where you can injure this particular peripheral nerve. Dr. Noah Levinson returns to the program this week to talk anatomy, pathology, and electrophysiology.

Produced by James E. Siegler. Music by Josh Woodward, Ian Southerland, Lee Rosevere, Milton Arias, and Unheard Music Concepts. BrainWaves' podcasts and online content are intended for medical education only and should not be used for clinical decision making.
