Introduction In this unit you will find out that the sensation of pain is caused by the release of a chemical called prostaglandin that stimulates the nerve endings and sends an electrical message to the brain. Inhibiting the formation of prostaglandin reduces pain and we will see, by looking at the specific shape of the molecules involved, how aspirin can so inhibit the formation of prostaglandin. To make the most of the material of this unit you will need to use an organic molecular modelling kit such a

Professor Patrick Duffy Inaugural Lecture: (Sport) Coaching: Blinded or blended in a changing world?
(Sport) Coaching: Blinded or blended in a changing world? Professor Duffy's research work focuses on policy and sport coaching, as well as applied work in sport-business transfer, which is part of a long-term project with Morrisons PLC. Patrick will address the policy and research backgrounds to developments in professional practice in this area.

Neuroimaging: Eyetracking - Everything you need to know
Rob Carpenter (TNS Magasin) presents on the high tech methods used by TNS Magasin, a pioneer in the field of shopper behavioural research. One of a range of research techniques demonstrated included "eye tracking". Eye Tracking utilises an infra-red beam, shone into the back of the retina to track the wearer's eye movements and fixations, offering far superior data on shoppers' attention than cameras that merely record field-of-view. Marketers can benefit from analysing exactly what the eye is
