Henry Markram
EPFL/BlueBrain
The Emergence of Intelligence in the Neurocortical Microcircuit
on: Google Video
Markram discusses microcolumns in the brain, and shows several video animations of computer models of neurons communicating in a microcolumn. His model includes 10,000 neurons, which is a *very* large number of neurons to model. Lecture 2 of 12 of IBM Almaden series.

Shane Ross
California Institute of Technology
Shane Ross: The Interplanetary Transport Network
on: Caltech
Shane Ross, graduate student in control and dynamical systems at Caltech, discussed how to identify and traverse a vast array of low-energy passageways that winds around the sun, planets, and moons that is created by the competing gravitational pull between celestial bodies. Space travel along these corridors would slash the amount of fuel needed to explore and develop our solar system.

Rice University
Logic in Computer Science
on: U. of Washington TV
During the past thirty years there has been extensive interaction between logic and computer science. The argument is that logic plays a fundamental role in computer science, similar to that played by calculus in the physical sciences and traditional engineering disciplines.

Jordan Mechner

Then and Now: Computer Graphics in Games
on:
Besides being a lot of fun to play, video games are also a major driver of innovation in computer graphics. Join us for a fascinating evening with three famous game designers -- Jordan Mechner (Prince of Persia), Rand Miller (Myst), and Will Wright (SimCity) . who will discuss how their games have pushed the boundaries of graphics development over the years. Moderated by Vince Broady of CNET GameSpot, the panelists will show and tell how their games have helped move us from simple pixel painting to lavish 3-D simulation.

Diffusion-Mediated Regulation In Endocrine Cell Networks
on: Caltech
Donald S. Cohen, Charles Lee Powell Professor of Applied Mathematics, Emeritus, Caltech; Danny Petrasek, Senior Research Fellow, Applied and Computational Mathematics, Caltech; and William Goodman, Professor of Medicine, UCLA, presented this lecture as part of the 0.1 Seminar series. They discuss a computational model that demonstrates diffusion-mediated regulation and that shows qualitative agreement with published experimental results. Such a signaling mechanism may regulate other networks with similar biochemical and geometric properties.

Insights into the Origins of Human Brain Tumors
on: Caltech
Houman Hemmati, a graduate student in biology at Caltech, discussed the recent advances in leukemia research that have identified bone marrow-derived stem cells as a source for brain-tumor cancers. Based on this work, scientists have taken a novel approach to identifying the origins of brain tumors. Their findings suggest that targeting tumor-derived stem cells is a promising approach to treating brain tumors.

The Pleasure of Finding Things Out

Speaker: Richard Feynman
Time: 50 minutes

Fifty minutes of PURE Feynman! This is the original Horizon Nova interview - essential for any Feynman fan... and for everyone else too!
THE PLEASURE OF FINDING THINGS OUT was filmed in 1981 and will delight and inspire anyone who would like to share something of the joys of scientific discovery. Feynman is a master storyteller, and his tales -- about childhood, Los Alamos, or how he won a Nobel Prize -- are a vivid and entertaining insight into the mind of a great scientist at work and play.
'The 1981 Feynman Horizon is the best science program I have ever seen. This is not just my opinion - it is also the opinion of many of the best scientists that I know who have seen the program... It should be mandatory viewing for all students whether they be science or arts students.' - Professor Sir Harry Kroto, Nobel Prize for Chemistry
