Communicating Science Through Visual Media: Synaptic Pruning
 
03:54
This animation project was created by Elisabeth Evans, Denali Schmidt, and Alexandra Urban through the class "Communicating Science Through Visual Media." This class, offered jointly by professors at RISD and Brown and in partnership with the Science Center and the Creative Mind Initiative, explores and develops the pedagogy of using visual media to convey scientific concepts. "Synaptic Pruning" 2014 Elisabeth Evans, Denali Schmidt, Alexandra Urban You look at a coffee cup, you see a coffee cup. But what if when you looked at the cup, your eyes sent signals to the auditory center of the brain? Not only would you see the coffee cup, you would start hearing things too… How distracting! Now imagine how confusing an entire city would be with all this overlapping sensory information. Well, this might actually happen if we didn’t have synaptic pruning.

Tom Shapiro, "Black Wealth/White Wealth..."
 
41:41
Full Title: Tom Shapiro, "Black Wealth/White Wealth: Hidden Costs of Being Black" "Race Today: A Symposium on Race in America" brought a group of the nation’s most respected intellectuals on race, racial theory and racial inequality together to consider the troubling state of black life in America today. What are the broader structural factors that shape race today? How do these factors work on the ground and institutionally and what are the consequences? What are the ideas about race, and racial identities that enable the normalcy of stark racial differences today? In particular, what role do key ideas such as “colorblindness” and “post race” play in shaping perception and outcomes? What can be done to challenge ideological and structural impediments to a racially egalitarian society? Tom Shapiro is the Pokross Professor of Law and Social Policy and the Director of the Institute on Assets and Social Policy at Brandeis University. Shapiro is a leader in the asset development field with a particular focus on closing the racial wealth gap. He is the author of The Hidden Cost of Being African American: How Wealth Perpetuates Inequality, and with Dr. Melvin Oliver, he wrote the multi award-winning Black Wealth/ White Wealth.
