7.340 Learning and Memory: Activity-Controlled Gene Expression in the Nervous System (MIT)
The mammalian brain easily outperforms any computer. It adapts and changes constantly. Most importantly, the brain enables us to continuously learn and remember. What are the molecular mechanisms that lead to learning and memory? What are the cellular roles that activity-regulated gene products play to implement changes in the brain?How do nerve cells, their connections (synapses), and brain circuits change over time to store information? We will discuss the molecular mechanisms of neuronal plas
Video discusses the nervous system. It shows what the nervous system is responsible for. It discusses what the nervous system is made of, how big it is, and what it controls. It is called the nervous system because it is made of billions of nerve cells. The brain is divided into the right side and the left side. It also shows the different parts of the brain.
Anatomy: Central Nervous System
This video, from StudyBeat.com, is for older middle school students and high school students. The central nervous system is told through animation.
The Anatomy of the Central Nervous System
This is an excellent, concise video giving information through simple animation and commentary. A quote from the video: "The nervous system is a complex network of nerve cells and nerve fibers spread throughout the body. Its function is to interpret, store, and respond to information received from inside and outside."
Learn about the communication system of your body. What lies beneath how you respond to everyday stimuli? How does your nerves process information? Video discusses what the nervous system does and how it works. This discussion of the nervous system is split into two parts; the central nervous system and the peripheral nervous system.

Atoms, elements and molecules are the building blocks of everything that makes up our world, including ourselves. In this unit you will learn the basic chemistry of how these components work together, starting with a chemical compound we are all very familiar with – water.
3.3 Quantitative and qualitative evidence The Tables above provide official quantitative evidence: evidence, data or information which is expressed in numerical terms. On the face of it, this clearly shows that recorded crime increased significantly throughout the twentieth century, albeit with some ‘dips’ in recent years. Common sense is confirmed. But there are problems with these data. Remember, we are looking here at crimes recorded by the police. Do you think that all crimes are recorded? There might be different
