The anatomy cookbook : 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 a

1 Meet your first active galactic nuclei

Figure 1 compares two nearby spiral galaxies of similar distance and type. NGC 5548, on the left, has a brighter nucleus than that of NGC 3277, on the right. This extra emission from the central regions of NGC 5548 is not generated by stars. Instead this light is thought to be ultimately powered by material falling

Histology
Although a great deal of emphasis of the course is on the structures of the organs and tissues, this is not a course based solely on pure microscopic descriptions. Lectures and laboratory sessions will focus on the integration of structures with functions, drawing from many disciplines (light/electron microscopy, cell biology, biochemistry, physiology etc.). Highlights of the course are its magnificently detailed collections of tissues as represented in the Circulatory Lecture.

Denialism: Media in the Age of Disinformation
A few hundred years after the Enlightenment, western civilization is rushing back to the Dark Ages. The causes are debatable, but, argue these science journalists, the public increasingly rejects the findings of science, from climate change to evolution, and is turning away from rationality and reason in general.

3.3.1 Summary

  • Claims about who is poor are rooted in shared and contested ideas about the basic necessities of life.

  • The experience of poverty is both relative and relational. It is defined by what people have, and what they can do, relative to the opportunities of others.

  • Poverty carries derogatory meanings, so it does not easily provide a basis for collective identity.

Medicine Games: Immune System Defender
Play a game and find out about a Nobel Prize awarded discovery or work! Ilya Mechnikov, one of the pioneers of immune system research, inserted a thorn into a larva and noticed strange cells gathering around the thorn. The cells were eating any foreign substances entering the ruptured skin. He called these cells phagocytes meaning "devouring cells." He later shared the 1908 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine with another pioneer in the same field, Paul Ehrlich.
