7.349 Stem Cells: A Cure or Disease? (MIT)
Have you ever considered going to a pharmacy to order some new cardiomyocytes (heart muscle cells) for your ailing heart? It might sound crazy, but recent developments in stem cell science have made this concept not so futuristic. In this course, we will explore the underlying biology behind the idea of using stem cells to treat disease, specifically analyzing the mechanisms that enable a single genome to encode multiple cell states ranging from neurons to fibroblasts to T cells. Overall, we ho
EE 120 - Lecture 22 - 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,
Dynamic Generation of Design Plans at the Brief Stage
The traditional approach to design and construction suffers from many limitations. As the technology becomes more available to the average users, the need for an effective and efficient solution has never been greater. This paper introduces an alternative approach to the life cycle of construction projects "application controlled process". Based on this approach, a framework for an Integrated Construction Environment (ICE) has been developed and implemented in a prototype demonstrator "SPACE" (S
Describes the inflammatory response - a series of local cellular and vascular responses which are triggered when the body is injured or invaded by micro-organisms or antigen.
SI Units and calculating unit changes
To identify what SI units are, when they are used, and how to calculate unit changes.
This RLO provides an introduction to the basic concepts of meta-analysis, which is an important and valuable tool for summarising data from multiple studies.
Dyslexia and Workplace Learning
How dyslexia affects student nurses on placement and their mentors. Includes guidelines and strategies for mentors and students.
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).
Positive and negative predictive value of diagnostic tests
This RLO explains how diagnostic test results are a combination of true and false positive, or true and false negative.
Determining the clinical importance of trial results
This RLO demonstrates how to interpret and use clinical trial data (ARR, RRR, NNT, NNH, and confidence intervals) in practice.

Tidal Streams in Massive X-ray Binary Systems: Neutron Star Close-up
A tiny neutron star orbits incessantly around a massive star with a diameter a million times larger than its own. The high luminosity of the massive star drives a strong wind from its surface. The neutron star crashes through this wind at over 300 kilometers per second. The gravity and X-ray luminosity of the neutron star act to disrupt the wind, producing an extended wake of dense gas trailing behind the neutron star. In this simulation, the tidal distortion of the primary star and the resultan
