The Industrial Revolution: The Steam Engine
By the late 1700s, the coal powered steam engine was widely used in English factories. Its operation, based on valve-piston action, was a great advancement for its time, further increasing industrial productivity. This video does a good job of showing how the steam engine works and its importance in the Industrial Revolution. Best used as part of a study on technology and/or with a drawing of a steam engine as the video is short.

Cu 21, Sn 79 (wt%), peritectic transformation
This microstructure is generated via a peritecticÃ¢â‚¬Â²s reaction (L+ÃŽÂµ = ÃŽÂ·), which bears some similarities to the more familiar eutectic reaction (L = ÃŽÂ±+ÃŽÂ²). Upon cooling from the liquid phase field, primary ÃŽÂµ is formed, which can be seen here as a slightly darker phase than the sheath of ÃŽÂ· surrounding it. The ÃŽÂ· sheath is the product of a peritectic reaction between ÃŽÂµ and liquid. The peritectic reaction rarely goes to completion, si

7.346 Synaptic Plasticity and Memory, from Molecules to Behavior (MIT)
In this course we will discover how innovative technologies combined with profound hypotheses have given rise to our current understanding of neuroscience. We will study both new and classical primary research papers with a focus on the plasticity between synapses in a brain structure called the hippocampus, which is believed to underlie the ability to create and retrieve certain classes of memories. We will discuss the basic electrical properties of neurons and how they fire. We will see how fi

"Regenerative Medicine: from Bench to Bedside, Spring 2010"
"Regenerative medicine involves the repair and regeneration of tissues for therapeutic purposes, such as replacing bone marrow in leukemia, cartilage in osteoarthritis or cells of the heart after a heart attack. In this course, we will explore basic mechanisms of how cells differentiate into specific tissues in response to a variety of biologic signaling molecules. We will discuss the use of such factors for in vitro tissue production. We will also study the cellular mechanisms involved in the c
