6.021J Quantitative Physiology: Cells and Tissues (MIT) 6.021J Quantitative Physiology: Cells and Tissues (MIT)

Description

In this subject, we consider two basic topics in cellular biophysics, posed here as questions: Which molecules are transported across cellular membranes, and what are the mechanisms of transport? How do cells maintain their compositions, volume, and membrane potential? How are potentials generated across the membranes of cells? What do these potentials do? Although the questions posed are fundamentally biological questions, the methods for answering these questions are inherently multidisciplinary. As we will see throughout the course, the role of mathematical models is to express concepts precisely enough that precise conclusions can be drawn. In connection with all the topics covered, we will consider both theory and experiment.

Effective Communication in Partnerships

Description

The objectives for this lesson include identifying particular areas of partnership working where effective communication is important and discussing why effective communication between partners is important. We will also be identifying and evaluating different ways in which partners might communicate with each other. Finally, we will be evaluating the effectiveness of a particular partnership’s communication strategy and also the communication skills and methods that you use as a partnership member.
