Please Play! Molecules Beckon
UMass Amherst chemistry professor Craig Martin wants the world to know that molecules are beautiful, so he created a unique interactive molecular playground where players can twirl, flip, rotate and re-size colorful models of chemicals including a zero-calorie fat substitute and a flu vaccine. The idea has caught on. There are now molecular playgrounds at the Springfield (Mass.) Science Museum, St. Olaf College in Minnesota and at science centers in San Francisco, Spain and Japan.

2.10 The distribution of repeated measurements

As noted in the previous section, if the same quantity is measured repeatedly, the results will generally be scattered across a range of values. This is perhaps best illustrated using a real example. Table 2 shows 10 measurements of a quantity called the 'unit cell constant' for an industrial catalyst used in the refining of petrol; this is an important quantity which determines how well the catalyst works, and can be measured by X-ray diffraction techniques. Notice that the cell constant is

4 Neural processing of auditory information

In this section we will look at how the frequency selectivity found along the basilar membrane is preserved or modified by the auditory nerve and how information about the intensity of the signal is encoded in the response of the auditory nerve fibres.

The nerve that communicates with or innervates the hair cells along the basilar membrane is called the vestibulocochlear nerve or VIIIth cranial nerve. It enters the brainstem just under the cerebellum and conveys information from
