Why is Nanotechnology Multidisciplinary? A perspective of one EE
The field of nano-science and nano-technology covers a broad area of expertise. Classical fields of Physics, Chemistry, Material Science, Electrical/Mechanical/Chemical Engineering all are involved in the "new" field f nano. Research and development in that area is by its very nature multi-disciplinary, since I bridge a large length scale from atoms to systems and timescales from femto seconds to eternity. This presentation will give a personal perspective of an electrical engineer in the area o

The effect of metacognitive strategies on subsequent participation in the middle school science clas
Metacognitive activities allow students to monitor the way in which they think, which encourages sustained thinking about science concepts. Teachers can sanction procedures that allow students to articulate the thinking process which in turn may foster greater voluntary participation. Research has shown that metacognitive strategies allow students to link concepts together, resulting in deeper understanding of science concepts. This promotes more in-depth questioning and understanding. In this r

Neil Segil uses stem cells to seek treatments for hearing loss
USC Stem Cell researcher Neil Segil seeks ways to treat hearing loss and balance disorders through the regeneration of inner ear cells. His lab explores why lost sensory cells don’t naturally regenerate in humans, even though they do in non-mammals such as birds and lizards. To better understand these delicate cells, the lab studies how they develop and shape the complex structures of the inner ear, and can later be damaged by environmental factors, including loud noises, antibiotics andchem
