The role of diagnosis in counselling and psychotherapy
This unit explores the role of diagnosis in the treatment of mental health problems. It considers the history of our current understandings of 'mental health' and 'illness' with focus on the concepts of anxiety and depression, and looks at potential gains and losses in using diagnostic labels in counselling and pyschotherapy.
This exercise introduces students to analysis of evolutionary relationships both by analysis of molecular similarity and by cladistic techniques. The molecular analysis uses both paper-and-pencil and bioinformatics comparison of the amino acid sequence of the hemoglobin beta chain of eight vertebrates. The cladistic exercises introduce students to cladistic principles, and then allow students to solve hypothetical problems both with and without homoplasy. Students then test their cladistic abili
One reason why caecilians are considered to be amphibians is because they go through metamorphosis to reach adulthood. Caecilians are unique amphibians because some of them lay eggs, but some of them give birth to live young.
Breathing tube of a mosquito larvae
The breathing tube is one organ of the respiratory system (along with the lungs in animals). The breathing tube allows for the intake of oxygen and the disposal of carbon dioxide.
Boy on trampoline
The boy would feel less secure if the safety net around the trampoline wasn't there. Humans have an innate need to feel secure in their environments.
Blood flow of moving Lumbriculus
Observe blood flow and muscle contractions in each body segment of Lumbriculus variegates (note how blood flows in relation to the worm turning in the capillary tube).
Aquatic Animal Skeleton - Backbone
The backbone of an aquatic animal allows it to be very flexible under water. It usually extends into a tail and is classified as a gliding joint.
Apple Screen 1
The apple has just fallen from the tree and rests on the ground.
Celery in pure water
The celery stalks take up the water and continue to live in this environment.
EPTOMS Ozone (7-26-96 - 12-4-00)
This animation shows the total ozone as measured by Earth Probe TOMS since the earliest measurements by that instrument. Days on which no data was taken appear as blank.
Arctic Ozone from February 1, 2003 through March 30, 2003
This visualization shows the northern hemisphere ozone hole from February 1, 2003 through March 30, 2003.
A Texas Dust Storm
A Texas dust storm that measures 200 miles across is captured by the SeaWiFS instrument.
Annually Occurring Aerosol Features: Biomass Burning in Southern Africa from July to September 1986
Aerosol index over Africa from July 2, 1986 through September 7, 1986 as measured by the Nimbus-7 Total Ozone Mapping Spectrometer (TOMS)
High Resolution 2-D Numerical Simulation of Emergence of Magnetic Flux Through the Solar Atmosphere
This series of animations (animations 107, 1416, 1417, and 1418) show sheets of magnetic flux undergoing velocity perturbations. The conditions for each simulation are outlined within the video.
Great Zoom Mosaic - Zoom Out
This is a mosaic of zooms out of 20 different locations prepared to support a paper given at IEEE Visualization 2002. The locations are: Long Beach, CA; New York City, NY; San Fransisco, CA; NASA-Goddard, Boston, MA; New Orleans, LA, Salt Lake City, UT; Sabie River, Africa; Park City, UT, Chicago, IL; Mongu, Africa; Salt Lake City, UT; Amazon, Brazil; Los Angeles, CA; Baltimore, MD; Snow Basin, UT; Atlanta, GA; Washington, DC; Orlando, FL; and Seattle, WA. Using data from different spacecraft an
Great Zoom into Siberia
Using data from different spacecraft and some powerful computer technology, visualizers at the Goddard Space Flight Center present you with a collection of American cities in a way you have never seen them before. Starting with our camera high above the Earth, we rush in towards the surface at what would be an impossible speed for any known vehicle. Passing though layers of atmosphere, the colors of our destinations shimmer with their own unique characteristics, and suddenly we find ourselves fl
Pearl River, China (with window)
Zoom down to land reclamation from the river delta. Dissolve between data collected in 1988, 1992, and 1995.
Family Planning Policies and Programs
Introduces issues and programmatic strategies related to the development, organization, and management of family planning programs, especially those in developing countries. Topics include social, economic, health, and human rights rationale for family planning; identifying and measuring populations in need of family planning services; social, cultural, political, and ethical barriers; contraceptive methods and their programmatic requirements; strategic alternatives, including integrated and ver
The Space Between Workshop, Fall 2004
This workshop explores how designers might become as sensitive to space as they are to objects. Through a number of projects and precedent studies, architectural design is studied in relation to the Space Between. The design process is studied in reverse, considering space first and objects second. This is not to imply that objects are not important, but rather that space is equally important.
Defrag: So You Just Got a New PC This being our first show post-holidays, we've decided to talk about the steps that each of us take when getting a new PC. What's the first thing you do?
