With her scientific expertise and crystal clear prose, she illuminates how intimately the brain and the immune system talk to each other, and how we can use place and space, sunlight and music, to reboot our brains and move from illness to health." -Gail Sheehy, author of "Passages" For more on the book, visit http://www.hup.harvard.edu/catalog.php?isbn=978
Max Mathews Radio Baton Demonstration
[Recorded: April 7, 2010] In the late 1950s computer music pioneer Dr. Max Mathews created MUSIC, the first widely used music synthesis program while working in the Acoustic Research Group at Bell Telephone Laboratories. Over the next forty years at Bell Labs and then at the Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics at Stanford University, Mathews advanced and refined digital computer music synthesis. In this video Mathews describes and demonstrates his Radio Baton Controller and Cond
Seth Shostak interviews stars of "2001: A Space Odyssey"
Seth Shostak, SETI astronomer, interviews Keir Dullea ("Dave Bowman") and Gary Lockwood ("Frank Poole"), the stars of "2001: A Space Odyssey". We were at Spacefest 2009, a meeting for space aficionados. I got to hang with Keir and Gary for quite a bit of time, swapping stories and basically cracking each other up. It was an incredible, amazing thing. Seth's audio interview - considerably easier to hear, too - is on the "Are We Alone" radio show website at http://radio.seti.org/episodes/Bodies
Measuring the Impact of Media on Architectural Design (Measuring the Impact of Media on Architectura
The relationship between the media and architectural design can be an important factor and can influence the design outcome. However, the nature, direction and magnitude of this relationship are unknown. Consequently, there have been many speculative claims about this relationship and almost none of them are supported with empirical research studies. In order to investigate these claims and to provide a testable framework, an empirical study has been conducted. A set of quantitative measures was

Above the Clouds: Telescopes on Mauna Kea
Astronomical research is dependent on technology that allows astronomers to see the universe. Telescopes act as giant eyes, capturing the light from celestial objects and processing it for astronomers to study. Generally, a space-based telescope will offer the clearest views of the universe. However, astronomers have found an ideal site for ground-based telescopes. In this video segment adapted from First Light, learn about recent telescope technologies and one of the best ground locations — M
