The anatomy cook book : a dissection guide with recipes
The Anatomy Cookbook has been written to accompany an anatomy and physiology course for bioengineers who would otherwise have missed out on the opportunity to study real organ systems at first hand. It is not an alternative to a standard anatomy text, it acts more as a laboratory supplement. The fun bit is that your kitchen takes the place of the dissection room. Each recipe provides an insight into one or more organs, and all you need to do is go to the supermarket and be prepared to think abou

Interactive Atlas of the Larynx by Ahmet Sinav, M.D.
This site is a copyrighted site. A physician by the name of Ahmed Sinav, M.D. originally authored it. It appears he is no longer in the employ of Columbia University in the City of New York. The information provided herein is general information to the College of Physicians and Surgeons Department of Otolaryngology. The site is wonderfully crafted and accurate. It features point-click interactive labeling which would serve as a solid tool for education in classroom undergraduate anatomy phy

The importance of the kidneys is most clearly demonstrated in the presence of pathophysiologic states. The kidneys play a central role in the maintenance of the internal milieu by balancing fluid, electrolytes, and hydrogen ions to provide optimal conditions for molecular, cellular, and body system function. They also serve as the major excretory organ for metabolic byproducts, drugs, and other organic substances. Finally, the kidneys are an important endocrine organ, producing vasoactive factor

New microscope 100 million times stronger than MRI - IBM research IBM scientists have demonstrated MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) with volume resolution 100 million times finer than conventional MRI. This will enable the study of complex 3D structures at the nanoscale level.

Dog examination techniques
This presentation has been developed to introduce veterinary students to the process of carrying out a systematic physical examination in canine patients. It is designed to act as an introduction to these processes and procedures only, giving the students a framework from which to work as they develop and refine these skills throughout the veterinary course. Physical examination is a key skill which will be used throughout a veterinary surgeon's career and is a key determinant in selecting diag
The Brain of the Future
The Graduate School Centre at the University of Nottingham was formally opened on 12th October 2006 by Baroness Susan Greenfield, Director of the Royal Institution of Great Britain and Fullerian Professor of Physiology and Comparative Anatomy at Oxford University. In this key note speech, Baroness Greenfield considers how humans will communicate and learn in the future, as technology becomes increasingly sophisticated, and the pace of change within society becomes ever faster.

This study is a preliminary work before the development of the CoPEX software that helps students and teachers to design experimental procedure. To this date, there are no other intelligent learning environments for this task. An experiment was done in two high schools during an immunology course (a lecture and a practical work). It is done in ecological conditions during a laboratory session with students majoring in science (ISCED level 3A-16/18 years old). Students designed (imagined, wrote a
Innovative pedagogical and psychological perspectives of podcasts
Podcasting, being a new form of audio distribution offering the possibility to be loaded on personal mobile devices from teachers, student, universitys websites and blogs, is discussed as an activity with potential in learning and teaching. The existing and potential varieties of podcasts represent sources for learning, converging, socializing. In this paper, podcasting is supported as an innovative approach to stimulate university students reflection, specifically on epistemic quest
Design approaches in technology enhanced learning
Design is a critical to the successful development of any interactive learning environment (ILE). Moreover, in technology enhanced learning (TEL), the design process requires input from many diverse areas of expertise. As such, anyone undertaking tool development is required to directly address the design challenge from multiple perspectives. We provide a motivation and rationale for design approaches for learning technologies that draws upon Simon's seminal proposition of Design Science (Simon,
Knowledge, the keystone of TEL design
This talk outlines the arguments supporting the claim that knowledge is the keystone of the design of Technology enhanced learning (TEL) environments. First, I consider the meaning we could attach to knowledge and knowing, and I introduce the notion of conception. Second, I explore how far the problématique of validation is central in our research. And to conclude, I introduce a characterisation of conceptions, which could help in addressing the problem of TEL design at a theoretical level.

Mind Over Matter
This Web site from the National Institute on Drug Abuse focuses on the brain's response to drugs. Students navigate through a series of colorful and informative pages that describe certain regions of the brain and how the chemicals in drugs like marijuana, stimulants, hallucinogens, inhalants, opiates, and steroids can harm them. To aid teachers with the brain anatomy and function, a helpful teacher's guide accompanies the site, as well as more detailed information on the drug effects.
Geometric Methods in Structural Computational Biology
This course is a short series of lectures on Structural Computational Biology, with an emphasis on geometric algorithms. Topics covered include basic data structures for modeling proteins; kinematics and inverse kinematics of protein chains; distance measures and alignment algorithms for protein structures; motif finding for the functional annotation of proteins; the application of robotics-derived methods to problems in protein modeling; and protein-ligand docking. The development of this cours
