Dr. George Rutherford discusses the general concepts of disease emergene and re-emergence with specific reference to Ebola virus disease, influenza and anthrax, how we track changing patterns of these diseases around the world and how we approach their diagnosis and control. Influenza in particular is a prototype of an emerging infectious zoonotic disease with complex social and biologic factors that can lead to its epidemic spread. We'll also discuss personal preparedness and general ideas about how to avoid contact with these diseases. Recorded on 03/19/2015.

Clara Deser from the National Center for Atmospheric Research, an internationally recognized expert on global climate variability will address a longstanding challenge for climate communicators - articulating the reasons for differences between projections of global scale climate change, which are strikingly consistent across climate models, and projections of regional change, which are not.

Many elderly people say they feel their brain slowing down with age, that their memory has grown weaker and their ability to concentrate is diminished. Certainly conventional wisdom says the older you get the less fit you are mentally. Neuroscientists at the University of Bochum wanted to test whether brain structures change with age. Working with test subjects aged 65 or over from a wide range of professional and social backgrounds, they studied a whole range of characteristics such as concentration, sense of touch, memory, and reaction times. Their tests produced some surprising results.

Social dysfunction is a universal feature of autism spectrum disorder (ASD) that emerges early in childhood. Research in the McPartland Lab explores the developmental interaction between early-occurring vulnerabilities in social behavior and subsequent experience in children with ASD. Dr. McPartland will describe an approach using clinical insights to guide neuroscientific study towards the development of translational applications. The lecture will review a series of studies to test and expand upon the predictions of the social motivation hypothesis of ASD. This developmental model offers direct implications for meaningfully characterizing subgroups of individuals with autism, designing targeted treatments, and elucidating the neural underpinnings of effective intervention.

Overview of the effects and implications of implementation of the California Common Core State Standards on schools with students with ASD, autism spectrum disorder. Social and intellectual deficits impede the students' ability to learn through traditional teaching methods and techniques, so teachers are urged to devise their own lesson plans and tailor instruction to the individual needs of the students in their classrooms. Recorded on 8/8/2014.

Comorbidity among neurodevelopmental disorders is more common than not because they share etiologic and cognitive risk factors. Methods will be presented for finding these shared risk factors, which are relevant for diagnostic formulation. Disorders discussed include dyslexia, speech sound disorder, Language Impairment and ADHD. Recorded on 8/8/2014.

The Artist's Field Library is a series of video essays performed as academic lectures that explore the mutually transformative relationship between art and the university. Part One uses the analogy of artists as talking birds and draws on research from cognitive ethology, linguistics, and film studies to ask, what kind of knowledge does art produce? The visuals for the lecture consist of drawn diagrams and short structural videos that illustrate, but perhaps complicate, various points of the lecture.

V.S. Ramachandran, PhD is looking to solve life's big questions by taking a different path. In studying the oddities and anomalies of the brain he hopes to illuminate the mysteries of normal brain function. A pioneer in the study of phantom limbs, Ramanchandran joins William Mobley, MD, PhD to discuss his fascinating career and his scientific process. Hear the latest on xenomelia, sleep paralysis, synesthesia and more.

Swiss scientists have developed equipment that can use solar-generated electricity to produce methane gas from CO2 and water, and the fuel can in turn be used to power cars. What's different here is that the carbon dioxide was previously filtered from the air, so the fuel it produces is CO2 neutral. Tomorrow Today features the concept of driving without emissions.
