PediNeuroLogic Exam: 18 Month Old: Normal: Fine Motor/Coordination - Beads in Cup
He is able to pick up small beads and place them in a small container with good fine motor control. By using both blocks and beads, one is testing increasing levels of difficulty of fine motor control and coordination. A neuroscience tutorial focusing on those aspects of the pediatric neurological examination that are unique to the child's nervous system, with an emphasis on important neurodevelopmental milestones.
Students are introduced to chemical engineering and learn about its many different applications. They are provided with a basic introduction to matter and its different properties and states. An associated hands-on activity gives students a chance to test their knowledge of the states of matter and how to make observations using their five senses: touch, smell, sound, sight and taste.
"Biomedical Information Technology, Fall 2008"
" This course teaches the design of contemporary information systems for biological and medical data. Examples are chosen from biology and medicine to illustrate complete life cycle information systems, beginning with data acquisition, following to data storage and finally to retrieval and analysis. Design of appropriate databases, client-server strategies, data interchange protocols, and computational modeling architectures. Students are expected to have some familiarity with scientific applica
Save the Oysters - Introducing Non-native Species to the Chesapeake Bay
Since the introduction of MSX and Dermo in the 1950’s, two infectious diseases that played a large role in the decline the Chesapeake Bay’s oyster population, several oyster hatcheries along the Eastern seaboard are working with scientists across many fields to develop innovative restoration programs. One idea is to introduce a non-native oyster from China called Crassostrea ariakensis. In this video podcast, MicrobeWorld talks about current research underway with C. ariakensis, the potentia
EE 120 - Lecture 27 - Signals and Systems
Structure and Interpretation of Systems and Signals - Spring 2007. This course is an introduction to mathematical modeling techniques used in the design of electronic systems. An important keyword here is "mathematical." Subjects we will cover include continous and discrete signals, with applications to audio, images, video, communications, and control; State-based models, beginning with automata and evolving to LTI systems; Frequency domain models for signals and frequency response for systems,
Numbers needed to treat and numbers needed to harm
This RLO considers how to measure and interpret the magnitude of effect in clinical trial results using number needed to treat (NNT) and number needed to harm (NNH).
Small Regulatory RNAs May Sharpen Spatial Expression Patterns
The precise establishment of gene expression patterns is a crucial step in development. Formation of a sharp boundary between high and low spatial expression domains requires a genetic mechanism that exhibits sensitivity, yet is robust to fluctuations, a demand that may not be easily achieved by morphogens alone. Recently, it has been demonstrated that small RNAs (and, in particular, microRNAs) play many roles in embryonic development. Whereas some RNAs are essential for embryogenesis, others ar
Greeks protest austerity measures
June 18 - Greeks protest a new belt tightening measure that they say will mean financial ruin for the average citizen. Deborah Gembara reports.
Children in Shakespeare
The director of the CAPITAL centre at Warwick, Professor Carol Rutter, talks about her book entitled Shakespeare and Child's Play: Performing Lost Boys on Stage and Screen.
8.321 Quantum Theory I (MIT)
8.321 is the first semester of a two-semester subject on quantum theory, stressing principles. Topics covered include: Hilbert spaces, observables, uncertainty relations, eigenvalue problems and methods for solution thereof, time-evolution in the Schrodinger, Heisenberg, and interaction pictures, connections between classical and quantum mechanics, path integrals, quantum mechanics in EM fields, angular momentum, time-independent perturbation theory, density operators, and quantum measurement.
INTERACTIVE LOOK AT THE AMERICAN GOTHIC WITH A WHITEBOARD
THIS IS A BRIEF LOOK AT A FEW INTERACTIVE SLIDES MADE WITH MIMIO STUDIO SOFTWARE FOR USE WITH AN INTERACTIVE WHITEBOARD. THE VIDEO LASTS THREE MINUTES AND DISPLAYS VARIOUS WAYS TO USE THE PAINTING TO CREATE INTEGRATED UNITS OF STUDY. A GOOD WAY TO GET STUDENTS TO THINK ABOUT ART IN DIFFERENT WAYS.
Forests and Chases of England and Wales c. 1000 to c. 1850
The website "Forests and Chases of England and Wales, c. 1000 to c. 1850" is a project pursued by dr. John Langton and dr. Graham Jones from the University of Oxford, a multidisciplinary survey into mapping medieval forests and their survival into the modern era. The groundbreaking research reveals the landscape history of Britain and Wales throughout the centuries but also social, economic and cultural aspects of human relationship with the forests and the environment. Detailed information abou

The Formation of the Solar System
Seems to me Mr. Bighead is as much an actor as he is a scientist in this animated video. Here he plays two roles in which he debates with himself how our solar system was formed. You will learn about the nebular theory and planetesimal theory of formation.
Architectural Composition in Digital Space
In this paper the possibilities of using the computers at course of architectural compositions are considered. As the start point of the new teaching method of architectural composition we used the course of tradition architectural composition, elaborated at our Faculty. The course of Digital Architectural Composition was finished in 2002. The main goal of using the new digital media for modelling architectural forms was checking the new possibilities of form creation. Traditionally, searching o
The Early Years Transition and Special Educational Needs (EYTSEN) Project: Technical Paper 2 - Speci
The Early Years Transition and Special Educational Needs (EYTSEN) research builds on the work of the Effective Provision of Pre-School Education (EPPE) project, a major longitudinal study of a national sample of young children's progress and development through pre-school and into primary school until the end of Key Stage 1 (age 3+ to 7 years) (Sylva et al 1999). The Department for Education & Skills (DfES) funds both the EPPE and EYTSEN research. The EYTSEN study focuses on special education
Winners and Losers in the Debt Ceiling Deal
In a last-minute attempt to stop the U.S. from defaulting on its loan obligations, Congress voted this week to increase the country's debt ceiling by at least $2.1 trillion. The deal includes $917 billion in spending cuts over the next 10 years, and the establishment of a congressional committee to reduce the deficit further by $1.5 trillion. Questions remain, however: Where will these cuts come from? How will social safety nets such as Medicare be affected? And can the country continue to recov
