Cell Processes

Producer: Cytographics Pty., Ltd.

Featuring living plant and animal cells photographed in the laboratory of Prof. Jeremy Pickett-Heaps at The University of Melbourne, Australia, this video introduces students to the relationship between internal structures within cells and the processes that enable life to continue, minute to minute, generation to generation. Brilliant, microscopic footage, time-lapse photography and graphic animations complement the video sequences and provide detailed explanations on topics such as mitosis, diffusion, cell size, cell division, photosynthesis, cellular respiration, sectioning and visualising cells directly. All these are introduced with familiar organisms. The microscopical images of organelles and cellular activity are drawn from a wide variety of cells. They are remarkably vivid and will stimulate students’ imagination. Accompanied by Instructor’s Note.
