HST.161 Molecular Biology and Genetics in Modern Medicine (MIT) HST.161 Molecular Biology and Genetics in Modern Medicine (MIT)

Description

This course provides a foundation for understanding the relationship between molecular biology, developmental biology, genetics, genomics, bioinformatics, and medicine. It develops explicit connections between basic research, medical understanding, and the perspective of patients. Principles of human genetics are reviewed. We translate clinical understanding into analysis at the level of the gene, chromosome and molecule; we cover the concepts and techniques of molecular biology and genomics, and the strategies and methods of genetic analysis, including an introduction to bioinformatics. Material in the course extends beyond basic principles to current research activity in human genetics.

Abnormal Behavior

Description

This course will help to define abnormal and normal behaviors and to group these abnormal phenomena into “disorders.” It will cover the basic concepts surrounding the diagnosis and treatment of abnormal psychological phenomena. The student will investigate the characteristics, epidemiology, controversy, and treatment of individual disorders. This free course may be completed online at any time. See course site for detailed overview and learning outcomes. (Psychology 401)

Description

Where do new drugs and treatments come from? This class will take you from the test tubes and mice of the laboratory to the treatment of patients with deadly blood disorders. Students will learn how to think as a scientist through discussion of primary research papers describing the discoveries of several novel treatments. Topics such as gene therapy, the potential of drugs based on RNA interference and the reprogramming of somatic cells into stem cells for regenerative medicine will be discussed. This course is one of many Advanced Undergraduate Seminars offered by the Biology Department at MIT. These seminars are tailored for students with an interest in using primary research literature to discuss and learn about current biological research in a highly interactive setting.

Mental Health: Anxiety

Description

It is normal for people to feel anxious from time to time in everyday life. It is also quite common for people with other mental illnesses to experience anxiety as an additional symptom. This is why it is important to have a clear understanding of what the Anxiety Disorders are, and how they differ from normal experience as well as from other disorders. This module will focus on the 3 most prevalent Anxiety Disorders: Generalised Anxiety Disorder, Phobic Disorders and Panic Disorder.

MAS.771 Autism Theory and Technology (MIT) MAS.771 Autism Theory and Technology (MIT)

Description

Includes audio/video content: AV selected lectures. This course illuminates current theories about autism together with challenges faced by people on the autism spectrum. Theories in communicating, interacting socially, managing cognitive and affective overload, and achieving independent lifestyles are covered. In parallel, the course presents state-of-the-art technologies being developed for helping improve both theoretical understanding and practical outcomes. Participants are expected to meet and interact with people on the autism spectrum. Weekly reading, discussion, and a term project are required. Includes audio/video content: AV selected lectures.

3.012 Fundamentals of Materials Science (MIT) 3.012 Fundamentals of Materials Science (MIT)

Description

This course focuses on the fundamentals of structure, energetics, and bonding that underpin materials science. It is the introductory lecture class for sophomore students in Materials Science and Engineering, taken with 3.014 and 3.016 to create a unified introduction to the subject. Topics include: an introduction to thermodynamic functions and laws governing equilibrium properties, relating macroscopic behavior to atomistic and molecular models of materials; the role of electronic bonding in determining the energy, structure, and stability of materials; quantum mechanical descriptions of interacting electrons and atoms; materials phenomena, such as heat capacities, phase transformations, and multiphase equilibria to chemical reactions and magnetism; symmetry properties of molecules and s This course focuses on the fundamentals of structure, energetics, and bonding that underpin materials science.
