Introduction to Internet-Based Audio and Video

The following files are available immediately for viewing and listening over the Internet. All you need to do is click on the file link that you are interested in, and a new window will open to play the video or audio file.

Besides being categorized by subject, the files are also divided into "Introductory" and "Advanced" level groups. Introductory programs are intended for lay audiences with little or no background in biology or medicine. Advanced programs are usually geared more towards students, researchers, or clinicians; however, they contain valuable and interesting information for anyone with a background in biological sciences or a good working knowledge of mental illness biology. Most include a slide show that help you follow the presentation.

Most PCs have the Microsoft Windows Media Player pre-installed, so that you should be able to click on any file in "Microsoft" format and it will play. Other file types may be played with the associated "Player" - which can be downloaded for free from the link provided.

Note: If the video or audio quality is not good it may be because your connection to the Internet is slow, or because of other traffic on the Internet is interrupting your file traffic. If a smaller (dial-up) format is available for that file you may try that file, or you may want to try viewing/listening to the file at a later time when there is less traffic on the Internet. Generally speaking, the Internet in the United States (where most of these files are stored) is busiest (and therefore, slowest) during the early morning (California and New York time) as well as during Lunch, and after dinner. If you can access these files at other times you will likely have a better viewing/listening experience.

Note: Special Thanks to Bill Lichtenstein of Lichtenstein Creative Media and "The Infinite Mind" for his support in educating people about brain disorders. If you like the list below of programs by The Infinite Mind, we recommend you also check out the full list of Infinite Mind programs.

Introduction to "Grand Rounds" Videos - What Are "Grand Rounds?"

Grand rounds are lectures/presentations sponsored by medicals schools. They are meant as continuing education for medical students, clinicians, and researchers. The level of information tends to be more technical, but many times the speaker is presenting on a topic that no one in the room is particularly familiar with, so they will go a little slower have explanatory slides to help the viewers. The most difficult parts for the average viewer tend to be the presentations of research study methodology and results, but these are generally a small part of the entire presentation. Most grand rounds end with a general summary of the information presented, and a question/answer session that can be very informative.

While many grand rounds presentations are extremely good, you frequently have to suffer through a long and boring (5 to 10 minute) introduction. Once you get past all the dedications to all the school's administrators, etc, things get interesting very quickly. Well worth the time if you want to learn the state of the art in these areas. These are high-bandwidth (high quality) videos so for best viewing you should watch this from work or school where the Internet connection is fast (DSL, cable or faster). Just click on the link that you're interested in to start the download.
