Sexology Sexology is the interdisciplinary study of human sexuality, including human sexual interests, behaviors and function. The term sexology does not generally refer to the non-scientific study of sexuality, such as political science or social criticism. In modern sexology, researchers apply tools from several academic fields, such as biology, medicine, psychology, epidemiology, sociology and criminology. Sexologists study sexual development (puberty), sexual orientation, sexual relationships and sexual activity, as well as document the sexualities of special groups; for example, child sexuality, adolescent sexuality, sexuality among the elderly and the disabled.

Atavism Early embryos of various species display some ancestral feature, like the tail on this human fetus. These features normally disappear in later development, but it may not happen if the animal has an atavism. Atavism is the tendency to revert to ancestral type. Science Across the World Science Across the World brings an international dimension to science education in schools and colleges. Students gain a global perspective on scientific issues related to their personal lives, their impacts on the environment and the varying cultural impacts of science on people in different countries. How to participate Choose a topicMake contact with other teachers to be partners Decide on the method to use for exchanging ideas and informationWork on the topic with your group of studentsShare the findings with others and encourage students to discuss what they learn from them. Teachers have found better ways of communicating with the help of social networking sites and virtual learning environments (VLEs).
Virtual Fetal Pig Dissection Welcome to the Whitman College Biology Department's Virtual Pig Dissection (VPD)! This site is designed as a supplement to laboratory dissections exploring introductory mammalian anatomy and physiology — it is basic and many details have been omitted for clarity. We hope that it is suitable for AP Biology students or for students of introductory anatomy and physiology at the college level.
Slavic mythology Many generations of Slavic artists were inspired by their national folklore: Ilya Yefimovich Repin, Sadko in the Underwater Kingdom (1876) Slavic mythology is the mythological aspect of the polytheistic religion that was practised by the Slavs before Christianisation. The religion possesses many common traits with other religions descended from the Proto-Indo-European religion. Old Slavic religion evolved over more than a thousand years and some parts of it were from neolithic or possibly even mesolithic times. The Earth was worshipped as Mat Zemlya and there were no temples. Rituals were performed in nature.
Tools for sharing thinking Teachers and students have access to an impressive set of tools for sharing ideas and making thinking visible. The old model of calling out answers to questions has certain limitations and while it remains the mainstay of many classrooms new options allow for a mix of options. Some of our goals are to provide our students with appropriate wait time or think time and to ensure the voice of even our most introverted students is heard. It would also be nice to have a record of our students thinking and a way to easily see patterns of thinking across a group of students.
Drug made in Ireland shuts down the extra chromosome cause of Down Syndrome Researchers at the University of Massachusetts have shown that it is possible to shut down the extra chromosome that causes the developmental problems and intellectual disabilities in people with Down syndrome Photo by: Google Images A new drug manufactured by the Elan Corporation in Ireland that could be used to treat Down Syndrome and the medical problems that accompany it, will soon be tested by the Down Syndrome Program at Massachusetts General Hospital. According to the Boston Globe researchers at the University of Massachusetts have shown that it is possible to do what had once seemed unthinkable, to shut down the extra chromosome that causes the developmental problems and intellectual disabilities in people with Down syndrome. If successful the new approach could perhaps short-circuit some of the manifestations of Down syndrome itself. (People with Down syndrome are born with three, not the usual two, copies of chromosome 21.)
