This course serves as an introduction to the structure and function of the nervous system. Emphasis is placed on the cellular properties of neurons and other excitable cells. Topics covered include the structure and biophysical properties of excitable cells, synaptic transmission, neurochemistry, neurodevelopment, and the integration of information in simple systems and the visual system.
Being Different Together: Case Studies on Diversity Interventions in Some South African Organisation
There are few contexts where people are not confronted by difference in the workplace, in organisations and public spaces, and as an aspect of the general body politic. The challenge, therefore, is how to value what different groups may bring to the collective while, at the same time, maintaining cohesive societies. Contemporary South Africa is no exception in facing realities such as these although the specific contours that the challenges take are obviously shaped by South Africa's history, it

In this course, we will explore the specific ways by which microbes defeat our immune system and the molecular mechanisms that are under attack (phagocytosis, the ubiquitin/proteasome pathway, MHC I/II antigen presentation). Through our discussion and dissection of the primary research literature, we will explore aspects of host-pathogen interactions. We will particularly emphasize the experimental techniques used in the field and how to read and understand research data. Technological advances

The objective of our research is to introduce a new formulation to model the Traveling Salesman Problem, a combinatorial optimization problem.
What is the difference between a simile and metaphor? Answering that question is the goal of this student-created video. Metaphors are direct comparisons; similes use like or as to make the comparison. Shakespeare's famous metaphor," All the world is a stage," is used as an example. ( 1:24)
Students analyze Shakespeare's Hamlet in a creative way in this selection. The format is that of a news program with "live" action coverage and an interview with a friend. ( 4:39)

Integrating Wells and 3D Seismic Data to Delineate the Sandstone Reservoir Distribution of the Talang Akar Formation, South Sumatra Basin, Indonesia Robet W. Widodo M.S. Candidate Department of Geological Sciences San Diego State University Advisor Dr. Gary Girty ABSTRACT This study describes the distribution and depositional environment of selected sandstone body reservoirs in the Oligocene-Miocene fluvial-deltaic Talang Akar Formation (TAF), Delta (DLT) area1, Jambi Sub-Basin, South Sumatra
The aim of this material is to introduce the student to two notions of convergence for sequences of real-valued functions. The notion of pointwise convergence is relatively straightforward, but the notion of uniform convergence is more subtle. Uniform convergence is explained in terms of closed function balls and the new notion of sets absorbing sequences. The differences between the two types of convergence are illustrated with several examples. Some standard facts are also discussed: a unif
This is a module framework. It can be viewed online or downloaded as a zip file. As taught in Autumn Semester 2009. This module introduces global politics through the major theoretical, historical and empirical ways of seeing international relations. Different claims, about, for example, human nature, power, war, peace, the state, society, law and politics are offered by thinkers who exercise a major influence on our contemporary understanding. These claims contribute to different approaches t
This is a module framework. It can be viewed online or downloaded as a zip file. This module introduces students to a range of approaches in social analysis. Through introductions to key concepts, theorists and research studies in the disciplines of sociology, cultural studies and social policy, students will be equipped with the skills necessary for more advanced study of contemporary society. Two routes to reading this module's contents are offered. Those who prefer to read on screen can na
