FERNANDEZ-VEGA, Iván. Neuronews Universal: the online newspaper created by the students of neuropathology's subject. FEM (Ed. impresa) [online]. 2020, vol.23, n.2, pp.59-62.  Epub May 04, 2020. ISSN 2014-9840.


A newspaper is an integrating element of communication that can be used in classrooms at all educational levels.

Subjects and methods:

With ( we have created a newspaper in an automated way with specific contents related to the neuropathology, using social networks, especially Twitter. All students have completed a satisfaction survey.


All the students of the neuropathology subject of the fourth year of Degree in Medicine have edited seven issues of the Neuronews Universal newspaper. The results of the survey have been very satisfactory, with an overall assessment of 8.4 (95% CI: 7.5-9.3). The worst valued part was the relationship with the search and curation of the articles to be published (7.1 points out of 10) and the item with the best score was for the one related to the implementation of this type of initiatives in teaching innovation in other subjects (9.1 points out of 10).


It has been fostered the proactivity of the student oriented to the creation by themselves an online newspaper such as Neuronews Universal, with seven issues edited and published in the 2018-2019 academic year. This fact is an unique experience in the teaching world of pathology in general, but particularly in neuropathology.
