The simulation program is based on the Nobel Prize winning Hodgkin-Huxley model for excitation of the squid axon. The program simulates an excised squid axon by applying stimuli or clamps after setting the environment of the axon, changing its properties, and/or adding drugs or toxins. By using the program tools, experiments can be developed that explore a variety of nerve properties, ranging from classical phenomena such as threshold, summation, refractory period, and impulse propagation to mo
EM Radio: Episode 2: Ghostly tale from Cheyenne

Environmental Decision Making
Using the Extend 'connect-the-components' visual programming, students can model and simulate ecosystems including social and economic forces as well as study parameter variations to develop an understanding of ecosystem function and productivity. By making 'what if...' changes in the model, the effects of various proposed decisions about the environment can then be shown. EDM includes three ecological systems: Ponds, Grasslands, and Logging. Students can predict results of changes in the mode

Food Interaction Study
This dataset comes from a study of 8 healthy males randomly assigned to a two-period crossover design, in which they either fasted and then ate, or ate and then fasted. They were given one dose of a drug, blood samples were collected and data on plasma levels were collected. Questions from this study refer to the absorption of the drug. A text file version of the data is found in the relation link.
Hysteria Over Pfiesteria
Students will be guided through an investigation of the Pfiesteria outbreaks through a variety of approaches employing writing, math, drawing, summarizing and deductive skills. As students assimilate details of the Pfiesteria problem, they will begin to develop a multifaceted understanding of the issue and its potential links to nonpoint source pollution. In Exercise II, they study the spatial and temporal distribution of Pfiesteria outbreaks in an effort to explore reasons for the connection be
Foto: Modernity in Central Europe, 1918-1945
During and directly after World War I, four great empires (Germany, Austro-Hungary, Russia, and the Ottomans) crumbled precipitously, to be replaced by more than one dozen fledgling nation-states. The largely agrarian, in some cases semifeudal, societies of central Europe were thrust nearly overnight into crises of civil war, unemployment, or inflation — and beyond these crises into a world propelled by mass media and consumer economies. Becoming modern was attractive but also anxiety-provokin
Element Concentration Game
The computer will display a number of cards with the names and symbols of the elements. After you have had time to study the cards, the computer will flip them over and ask you to find a particular element. Click on the card that contains that element.
