Two new multimedia resources for the research community are now available on JEFFLINE:
Henry Stewart Talks – Biomedical & Life Sciences Collections
Henry Stewart Talks is a collection of seminar style presentations by world authorities in the biomedical and life sciences. These specially-commissioned presentations cover both the fundamentals and the latest advances in a simple format – animated slides with accompanying narration, synchronized for easy listening. The collection is constantly updated and will expand to over 1,000 talks. These talks are an excellent way to stay up to date on the latest developments in a field, or a great way to become quickly immersed in a new area.
Examples of recently added talks:
- Siblings of children with autistic spectrum disorders – Part 1 (43 minutes)
Prof. Bryna Siegel – University of California, San Francisco, USA
Series: Autism and Autism Spectrum Disorders – History, Diagnosis, Neurobiology, Treatment and Outcome
- The neural bases of cognitive control (58 minutes)
Prof. Jonathan Cohen – Princeton University, USA
Series: Cognitive Neuroscience – Emergence of mind from brain
- KATP channels and insulin secretion (50 minutes)
Prof. Frances Mary Ashcroft – Department of Physiology, Anatomy and Genetics, University of Oxford, UK
Series: Ion Channels – Mediators of ion currents across cell membranes
Journal of Visualized Experiments (JoVE) is a peer reviewed, PubMed indexed journal devoted to the publication of biological, medical, chemical and physical research in a video format. JoVE enhances the communication of experimental data and research results, overcoming the inherent limitations of traditional, static print journals. Jeffersonians have access to the General and Neuroscience sections of the journal, indicated by:
Scientists from leading research institutions demonstrate techniques and procedures, using video technology to capture and transmit the multiple facets and intricacies of life science research. Visualization greatly facilitates the understanding and efficient reproduction of both basic and complex experimental techniques, addressing two of the biggest challenges faced by today’s life science research community: poor reproducibility of biological experiments, and the time and labor-intensive nature of learning new experimental techniques.
