Download Das Sehen in der Dämmerung: Physiologie und Klinik by Franz A. Hamburger PDF

By Franz A. Hamburger

Kenntnisse auf dem Gebiete der Physiolo ie gehoren zum Bildungsgut des Arztes, ja jedes Naturforschers. Das hier be handelte Thema ist sogar oft Gegenstand von Fragen, die der Laie an den Arzt richtet und die der Arzt manchmal nicht be friedigend beantworten kann. Der Verfasser hat sich deshalb be muht, bei aller Knappheit der Darstellung auch dem fachlich Uneingeweihten verstandlich zu bleiben. Dies um so mehr, als, las Thema einen Ausschnitt aus der Sinnesphysiologie betrifft, der die Augenheilkunde, die innere Medizin und die Neurologie, ja seihst die Physik und die Philosophie miteinander vereinigt. Es ist der Ehrgeiz des Verfassers, auch bei dpn Anhangern die;;er Disziplinen auf Interesse zu stossen. Die Studie stellt die Zusammenfassung von Arbeiten dar, die der Verfasser im Dienste der Deutschen Kriegsmarine in den Jahren 1942 bis 1945 ausgefuhrt hat. Sie gingen zu einem Teile auf Veranlassung und Anregung des Herrn Doz. Dr. E. He i n si u s zuruck, der mit Herrn Hofrat Prof. Dr. A. v. T s ehe r m a ok - S e y sen e g g eine eigene sinnesmedizinische Abteilung einge richtet hatte. Die Versuche dienten praktischen Gesichtspunkten. fuhrten aher zu Ergebnissen, die die Theorie des Lichtsinns nicht unwesentlich beeinflussen. In den drei Jahren entstanden etwa zehn Berichte, die bisher nicht veroffentlicht wenlen konnten

Download Urwaldmenschen am Ituri: Anthropo-Biologische by Martin Gusinde PDF

By Martin Gusinde

Diese Arbeit bringt den Hauptteil memer anthropo-biologischen Forschungsarbeiten im ostlichen Waldbereich der belgischen Kongo-Kolonie aus den lahren 1934/35 zur Darstellung. Sie will nicht mehr sein als eine sogenannte Materialpublikation im strengsten Wortsinne und enthalt demnach ausschliesslich solche rassenkundliche Untersuchungen bzw. Beobachtungen, die ich personlich an den Pygmaen und Negern im Ituri-Walde durchgefuhrt habe. Wenn ausnahmsweise ein vereinzelter Hinweis auf die Beurteilung bedeut samer Tatsachen oder entscheidender Merkmale durch fruhere Forscher einge flochten wurde, so geschah es mit der offenkundigen Absicht, die eigenen Ergebnisse zu stutlen oder die besprochene Eigenart dieser Eingeborenen hervorzuheben. Einer fur spater geplanten Schilderung bleibt es vorbehalten, alle brauchbaren Mitteilungen uber die zentral-afrikanischen Pygmaen aus altester wie neuester Zeit zugleich mit meinem eigenen Forschungsertrag in quellenkritischer Auswertung zu verarbeiten. Das Bild von der rassischen Korperpragung der Pygmaen und Neger im Ituri-Walde erfahrt seine naturhafte Vervollstandigung durch die eingefugte Schilderung ihrer Daseinsweise. Fur die Pygmaen stutle ich mich ausschliesslich auf eigene Beobachtungen. Die nicht minder befremdliche Lebensform der Waldneger zeichne ich zusammenfassend allein nach den wesentlichen Grund zugen und ziehe hierfur auch die Erkundungen einiger Fachleute der Neuzeit heran. Mit alle dem erhellt sich fur unsere anthropologische und ethnologische Erkenntnis das tiefe Dunkel, das bisher auf den Eingeborenen im schwer zuganglichen ostlichen Urwaldabschnitt der zentral-afrikanischen Hylaa los angeles

Download Discovery-Based Learning in the Life Sciences by Kathleen M. Susman PDF

By Kathleen M. Susman

For approximately a decade, scientists, educators and coverage makers have issued a choice to school biology professors to remodel undergraduate lifestyles sciences schooling. As a gateway technology for plenty of undergraduate scholars, biology classes are an important to addressing a number of the demanding situations we are facing, similar to weather switch, sustainable nutrition offer and clean water and rising public overall healthiness issues.

While canned laboratories and cook-book ways to school technology schooling do train scholars to function apparatus, make actual measurements and paintings good with numbers, they don't train scholars how you can take a systematic method of a space of curiosity in regards to the flora and fauna. technology is greater than simply ideas, measurements and proof; technological know-how is necessary pondering and interpretation, that are necessary to medical research.

Discovery-Based studying within the lifestyles Sciences provides a distinct manner of organizing and constructing biology instructing laboratories, to advertise either deep studying and realizing of center ideas, whereas nonetheless educating the inventive technique of science.

In 8 chapters, the textual content courses undergraduate teachers in growing their very own discovery-based experiments. the 1st bankruptcy introduces the textual content, delving into the need of technological know-how schooling reform. The chapters that stick to tackle pedagogical pursuits and wanted results, incorporating discovery-based laboratory studies, real looking constraints on such lab experiments, version eventualities, and exchange how you can improve pupil knowing. The e-book concludes with a mirrored image on 4 imperatives in lifestyles technology research-- weather, foodstuff, strength and health-- and the way we will use those laboratory experiments to deal with them.

Discovery-Based studying within the lifestyles Sciences is a useful consultant for undergraduate teachers within the lifestyles sciences aiming to redesign their curriculum, motivate their scholars and get ready them for  careers as proficient international voters
