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.

6.3 Summary of Sections 4 to 6

Hair cells do not have axons and therefore do not generate action potentials.

The nerve that communicates with or innervates the hair cells along the basilar membrane is known as the vestibulocochlear nerve or VIIIth cranial nerve. The cochlear portion of the nerve contains afferent fibres that carry information in the form of action potentials from the organ of Corti to the brain, and efferent fibres that bring information from the cerebral cortex to the periphery.

"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
