Welcome to JoVE Science Education, the revolutionary video database dedicated to teaching laboratory fundamentals through simple, easy to understand video demonstrations.
This premier collection exhibits how to use standard pieces of laboratory equipment essential in many experiments, as well as how to perform basic laboratory functions. Each video is paired with additional video resources for you to view practical applications of the technique and other complementary skills.
This Science Education video collection demonstrates how to execute basic techniques commonly used in cellular and molecular biology. To enhance your understanding of the methods each video is paired with additional video resources to show practical applications of the techniques and other complementary skills.
This unique Science Education collection features three model organisms commonly used in life sciences research: S. cerevisiae (Baker’s Yeast), D. melanogaster (the fruit fly), and C. elegans (nematode roundworm). In addition to discussing the current and historical significance of these organisms, the collection includes concepts and methodology relating to how they are maintained and reproduce in the laboratory.
This fourth installment of JoVE’s Science Education series features three vertebrate species commonly used in life sciences research: M. musculus (laboratory mouse), G. g. domesticus (chick), and D. rerio (zebrafish). In addition to discussing the current and historical significance of these organisms, the collection includes methodology relating to how they are maintained in the laboratory and reviews important concepts relating to their development.
JoVE’s fifth Science Education collection provides an introduction to the field of neuroscience. These videos offer a glimpse of neuroscience at the professional level, through an exploration of five major branches of study: neurophysiology, neuroanatomy, cell and molecular neuroscience, behavioral neuroscience, and developmental neuroscience. In addition to presenting the key questions asked by scientists from these subfields, the collection describes some prominent methods used by today’s most brainy researchers, while making exciting discoveries regarding nervous system function.
This sixth Science Education collection introduces the field of developmental biology. Researchers in this discipline endeavor to understand the developmental processes that occur in organisms at every stage - starting from the single-celled embryo to the aging adult. Based on current science, this collection is divided into five sub-categories: developmental genetics, molecular developmental biology, stem cell biology, organogenesis, and aging and regeneration. The following videos provide a brief history of developmental biology research and discuss the common lab techniques used to answer key questions asked by experts in this field.
Behavior is a complex phenomenon and scientists are trying to decode the neural mechanisms by which our systems produce and are affected by behavior. JoVE's seventh Science Education collection presents the fundamentals of behavior neuroscience. This collection is sub-divided on the basis of different aspects of human behavior such as learning, memory, cognition, movement, addiction and behavioral disorders. The videos briefly explain the neurobiology of behavior, discuss concepts behind prominent techniques, introduce important questions being asked by scientists and provide protocols to run behavioral experiments.
