Texas Tech Continues Research Months After Gulf Oil Spill
Ron Kendall, Director of the Institute of Environmental and Human Health at Texas Tech, discusses the research scientists are doing to better understand how the oil and oil-dispersants mixture affect wildlife.
9.65 Cognitive Processes (MIT)
This undergraduate course is designed to introduce students to cognitive processes. The broad range of topics covers each of the areas in the field of cognition, and presents the current thinking in this discipline. As an introduction to human information processing and learning, the topics include the nature of mental representation and processing, the architecture of memory, pattern recognition, attention, imagery and mental codes, concepts and prototypes, reasoning and problem solving.
Hackerman Hall is Dedicated
Welcome to Hackerman Hall. In this video, our faculty and students introduce you to some of the most exciting research at the Johns Hopkins Whiting School of Engineering. Experts explain how this building, named for Baltimore philanthropist Willard Hackerman, fosters interdisciplinary research in dynamic areas of science.
7.012 Introduction to Biology (MIT)
The MIT Biology Department core courses, 7.012, 7.013, and 7.014, all cover the same core material, which includes the fundamental principles of biochemistry, genetics, molecular biology, and cell biology. Biological function at the molecular level is particularly emphasized and covers the structure and regulation of genes, as well as, the structure and synthesis of proteins, how these molecules are integrated into cells, and how these cells are integrated into multicellular systems and organism

This course covers probability distributions for classical and quantum systems. Topics include: Microcanonical, canonical, and grand canonical partition-functions and associated thermodynamic potentials. Also discussed are conditions of thermodynamic equilibrium for homogenous and heterogenous systems. The course follows 8.044, Statistical Physics I, and is second in this series of undergraduate Statistical Physics courses.
This seminar explores the development and application of qualitative research designs and methods in political analysis. It considers a broad array of approaches, from exploratory narratives to focused-comparison case studies, for investigating plausible alternative hypotheses. The focus is on analysis, not data collection.
This is an undergraduate course on differential calculus in one and several dimensions. It is intended as a one and a half term course in calculus for students who have studied calculus in high school. The format allows it to be entirely self contained, so that it is possible to follow it without any background in calculus.
This comprehensive course on the visual system is designed to ground future researchers in the field of visual science and to provide scientists with an excellent basis for using the visual system as a model in research. In this graduate seminar, anatomical, neurophysiological, imaging and behavioral research is examined in an attempt to gain a better understanding of how information is processed in the primate visual system.
This course uses readings and discussions to focus on a series of short-term events that shed light on American politics, culture, and social organization. It emphasizes finding ways to make sense of these complicated, highly traumatic events, and on using them to understand larger processes of change in American history. The class also gives students experience with primary documentation research through a term paper assignment.
UCL's strength across teaching and research has secured the university's place among the world's leading academic institutions. You'll find our Nobel Prize winners in the history books, UCL inventions in your home (Alexander Graham Bell, inventor of the telephone, was a UCL student) and our name at the top of league tables and research assessments. We even boast Olympic sports stars -- UCL Linguistics graduate Christine Ohuruogu clinched a gold medal at the Beijing games. http://www.ucl.ac.uk/ab
Dr Adam Giangreco views stem cell research as the best promise for medical breakthroughs over the next few decades. Dr Giangreco, a recent recipient of a major European Research Council grant, explains how he is exploring new treatments for lung damage and why funding stem cell research is so vital. 6 October is International Stem Cell Awareness Day.

When you hear the words "Climate Change", what do you think of - last week's, thunderstorm, or something longer-term? Do you think the media gives credence to climate change deniers? In this video Dr Ben Newell from UNSW's School of Psychology talks about the difficulties for climate scientists in cutting through misconception and misinformation to get their messages across. Dr Newell has written a paper on the Psychology of Global Warming with Professor Andy Pitman of the UNSW Climate Chang
Dance, music, theatre, film, writing and more - showcasing a year of research, teaching and production from the Creative Practice and Research Unit of the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences.
Together, this course and its predecessor, 8.05: Quantum Physics II, cover quantum physics with applications drawn from modern physics. Topics in this course include units, time-independent approximation methods, the structure of one- and two-electron atoms, charged particles in a magnetic field, scattering, and time-dependent perturbation theory. In this second term, students are required to research and write a paper on a topic related to the content of 8.05 and 8.06.
Students will study in Perth, Australia at the University of Western Australia (UWA), a member of Australia's prestigious "Group of Eight" leading research-intensive universities. Contact the Office of International Studies for more information. http://www.nd.edu/~ois/
This course introduces students to the conduct of political research using quantitative methodologies. The methods are examined in the context of specific political research activities like public opinion surveys, voting behavior, Congressional behavior, comparisons of political processes in different countries, and the evaluation of public policies. Students participate in joint class projects and conduct individual projects.
