Update for Spetzler-Martin/Ponce grade

I just released a new version of the Spetzler-Martin/Ponce decision support module on NeuroMind.cc.

This is done…Continue Reading…

Error in PHASES calculator

Professor Stephen Lownie informed me about an error in the PHASES calculator of NeuroMind, and he was right.

As these MOOC courses are…Continue Reading…
