Foundations of Human Memory and Learning, Spring 2002
Surveys literature on human memory and learning. Focuses on the organization of memory at cognitive and neural levels, the basis of remembering and forgetting, and false memories. Cognitive theory and behavioral evidence are integrated with data from neuro-psychology and neuroimaging.
New Physics Sandwiched Between Two Oxide Insulators By Dr. Karen Michaeli Her lecture notes: The continuous search for novel electronic and spintronic devices recently came to fruition in the form of oxide interfaces. Combining two boring oxide insulators can result in an unexpected highly-conducting layer at the interface. At present, similar conducting layers are used with great success in silicon-based computer chips. However, the oxide interfaces exhibit a much larger variety of phenomena, which may lead to additional applications, particularly in the field of

Resolving some Ambiguities in Real-time Design Drawing Recognition by means of a Decision Tree for A
In this paper, we present a theoretical study on automated understanding of the design drawing. This can lead to design support through the natural interface of sketching. In earlier work, 24 plan-based conventions of depiction have been identified, such as grid, zone, axial system, contour, and element vocabulary. These are termed graphic units. Graphic units form a good basis for recognition of drawings as they combine shape with meaning. We present some of the theoretical questions that have
Station Crew Talks To Reporters About Dragon Spacecraft
Expedition 31 Flight Engineers Don Pettit, Andre Kuipers and Joe Acaba discuss Dragon's mission with reporters during a crew news conference. Dragon is scheduled to spend six days berthed to the station before being detached and released on May 31.
Newbie Lesson S5 #20 - You’re Going to be Late for the Flight in Japan!
Learn Japanese with JapanesePod101.com! As you dream merrily of kittens and puppies in rainbows in your comfortable Japanese bed, suddenly you hear screaming in Japanese. Certainly the kittens aren’t that angry…or at least, they aren’t speaking in Japanese if they are! Rousing from slumber, you open one eye cautiously to make sure a ferocious Japanese [...]
Unintended Chemical Exposures (Interactive)
In this interactive slideshow produced for Teacher's Domain, learn why health officials are concerned about the safety of some of the chemicals contained in products we use and foods we consume every day. The slideshow features images of common items accompanied by descriptions of the type or class of chemical they contain: phthalates, PCBs, BPA, PBDEs, organochlorine pesticides, lead, or cadmium. The descriptions explain why scientists think these chemicals may be toxic, and detail their k
CAD in Architectural Practice
A leading architecture/engineering firm has made use of in- house computer system since 1963. This paper discusses some special topics in using computers for the design of HVAC systems, and the process of implementing CAD in the HVAC engineering practice
Classroom Rainforest Tour (Part 3 of 3)
Third grade students from Mr. Salsich's class at Deans Mill School turned their classroom into a rainforest to share what they had learned with others. They gave tours of the rainforest and raised money to protect rainforest habitats. This is a virtual tour of the classroom. This is part 3 of 3. This is a helpful resource to build background knowledge and to help make real world connections between nature and the classroom. (7:12)

1st "Robert E. Lee"
The Robert E. Lee was built at New Albany, Indiana in 1866 for $200,000. She was 297 feet by 49 feet by 9 feet. June 30, 1870 she left New Orleans in a race against the Natchez to St. Louis. The Henry Tate, MayFlower, Mary Alice and Tahlequah preceded them up the river for a way with excursionists to see the race. The Lee won with the time of 3 days, 18 hours, 14 minutes. She was dismantled at Jeffersonville, Indiana, in the spring of 1876, to build the Robert E. Lee (2nd).
