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
Corruption in Business and Government
This video is accompanied by text. "In the decades between the end of the Civil War and the turn of the twentieth century, new technologies, cheap immigrant labor, maturing methods of industrialization, and a mechanized, streamlined transportation system of railroads and steam-powered ships proved a formula for astoundingly rapid growth in the business sector. Government, however, could not keep pace with these changes. Governments were naive about business and the ways that individuals and comp
Space for Architecture [Audio]
Speaker(s): Sheila O’Donnell, John Tuomey | Editor's note: We apologise for the poor quality of this recording. O’Donnell + Tuomey Architects won the LSE international architectural competition for the Saw Swee Hock Student Centre in June 2009. Five years later, with the building completed and the Student Centre thriving in use, Sheila O’Donnell and John Tuomey will discuss the ideas behind their architectural design. The lecture will be followed by the book launch of Space for Architectur

1.63 Advanced Fluid Dynamics of the Environment (MIT)
Designed to familiarize students with theories and analytical tools useful for studying research literature, this course is a survey of fluid mechanical problems in the water environment. Because of the inherent nonlinearities in the governing equations, we shall emphasize the art of making analytical approximations not only for facilitating calculations but also for gaining deeper physical insight. The importance of scales will be discussed throughout the course in lectures and homeworks. Mathe
Cnoidal and sinusodail wave reflection from a laboratory sand beach
This study focuses on the evolution of accretional beach profiles under cnoidal and sinusoidal waves and on the reflection of those waves from the sand beach. The SUPERTANK test, STi0, conducted at Oregon State University in 1991 was reproduced at three different scales, 1:10, 1:8.5 and 1:11. Two tests were run at each scale by using sinusoidal and cnoidal waves. The results are compared and differences discussed for: energy spectra, reflection coefficients, phase angles between incident and ref

McMaster University convocation ceremony for the Faculty of Sciences
Welcome to this Futures workbook on finding work. It is split into several sections describing different techniques for finding work. You can dip in and out of the different sections; however it is not wise to rely on only one mechanism for finding work. It is a competitive market for final year students and new graduates and so you should try many alternate ways to find work.
21L.460 Medieval Literature: Dante, Boccaccio, Chaucer (MIT)
The course explores the literary masterworks of three of the most celebrated authors of the Middle Ages in their original literary and historical contexts. The various themes they take up - the importance of writing in the vernacular; the discourse of love as a form of discipline practised upon the self; the personal and political aspirations of the self in society; the constitution of ideal forms of social organization; the role of religion in the life and works of lay authors - transformed the
7.345 Vascular Development in Life, Disease and Cancer Medicine (MIT)
The growth of blood vessels, a process known as angiogenesis, is one of the earliest events in mammalian development and is regulated by a sensitive interplay of growth factors and other molecules. In this course, we will discuss the key molecular regulators of blood vessel development as well as the techniques and experimental systems that have been utilized by vascular biologists. We will also examine the success of several anti-angiogenic treatments that have been approved by the Food and Dru

Puzzle-Making : What Architects Do When No One is Looking
The thesis of this paper is that architects work in a manner that is antithetical to problem-solving because they cannot explicate desired effects prior to their realization through the design process. In an attempt to clarify architecture's uncommon mode of action the author suggests that instead of specifying what they are trying to accomplish prior to their attempts to accomplish it as problem-solver do, architects treat design as a search for the most appropriate effects that can be attained
7.22 Developmental Biology (MIT)
This graduate and advanced undergraduate level lecture and literature discussion course covers the current understanding of the molecular mechanisms that regulate animal development. Evolutionary mechanisms are emphasized as well as the discussion of relevant diseases. Vertebrate (mouse, chick, frog, fish) and invertebrate (fly, worm) models are covered. Specific topics include formation of early body plan, cell type determination, organogenesis, morphogenesis, stem cells, cloning, and issues in

Q methodology is a technique for modelling viewpoints, that was developed by William Stephenson (1902-1989). This animation, intended for a general audience, provides a short non-technical introduction to the methodology, outlining the different stages involved in conducting a Q study. The animation was funded by the UK Higher Education Academy, as part of the National Teaching Fellow 'Assessing Students at Masters level' project, Assimilate.
Causes of the English Civil War.
This is a slideshow giving reasons for the English Civil War. The King´s personality, the problems with parliament and the need for money due to war are listed. His marriage to Catholic Henrieta Maria and his religious policies are also presented. The main events in this historical period can be read and there is background music but it does not belong to the time studied. (Amateur video) (07:55)
21L.422 Tragedy (MIT)
"Tragedy" is a name originally applied to a particular kind of dramatic art and subsequently to other literary forms; it has also been applied to particular events, often implying thereby a particular view of life. Throughout the history of Western literature it has sustained this double reference. Uniquely and insistently, the realm of the tragic encompasses both literature and life.Through careful, critical reading of literary texts, this subject will examine three aspects of the tra
