7.349 From Molecules to Behavior: Synaptic Neurophysiology (MIT)
Like transistors in a computer, synapses perform complex computations and connect the brain's non-linear processing elements (neurons) into a functional circuit. Understanding the role of synapses in neuronal computation is essential to understanding how the brain works. In this course students will be introduced to cutting-edge research in the field of synaptic neurophysiology. The course will cover such topics as synapse formation, synaptic function, synaptic plasticity, the roles of synapses

Vector Calculus - What is Green's Theorem?
This lecture, by Dr. Chris Tisdell, discusses Green's theorem in the plane. Green's theorem not only gives a relationship between double integrals and line integrals, but it also gives a relationship between "curl" and "circulation".
In addition, Gauss' divergence theorem in the plane is also discussed, which gives the relationship between divergence and flux.
Plenty of examples are presented.

2.06 Fluid Dynamics (MIT)
This class provides students with an introduction to principal concepts and methods of fluid mechanics. Topics covered in the course include pressure, hydrostatics, and buoyancy; open systems and control volume analysis; mass conservation and momentum conservation for moving fluids; viscous fluid flows, flow through pipes; dimensional analysis; boundary layers, and lift and drag on objects. Students will work to formulate the models necessary to study, analyze, and design fluid systems through t
Climbing Mt. Evolution
There's no peak in sight - fitness peak, that is -- for the bacteria in Richard Lenski's Michigan State University lab. Lenski, MSU Hannah Distinguished Professor of Microbiology and Molecular Genetics, has been running his evolutionary bacteria experiment for 25 years, generating more than 50,000 generations. In a paper published in the current issue of Science, Michael Wiser, lead author and MSU graduate student in Lenski's lab, compares it to hiking. To learn more, visit http://msutoday.msu

6.637 Optical Signals, Devices, and Systems (MIT)
6.637 covers the fundamentals of optical signals and modern optical devices and systems from a practical point of view. Its goal is to help students develop a thorough understanding of the underlying physical principles such that device and system design and performance can be predicted, analyzed, and understood. Most optical systems involve the use of one or more of the following: sources (e.g., lasers and light-emitting diodes), light modulation components (e.g., liquid-crystal light modulato
