Designing Science Presentations guides researchers and graduate students of virtually any discipline in the creation of compelling science communication. Most scientists never receive formal training in the creation, delivery, and evaluation of such material, yet it is essential for publishing in high-quality journals, soliciting funding, attracting lab personnel, and advancing a career. This clear, readable volume fills that gap and provides visually intensive guidance at every step—from the construction of original figures to the presentation and delivery of those figures in papers, slideshows, posters, and websites. It provides pragmatic advice on the preparation and delivery of exceptional scientific presentations; demonstrates hundreds of visually striking presentation techniques, giving readers inspiration for creating their own; and is structured so that readers can easily find answers to particular questions. Clear heading for each section indicates its message, highlighted with graphic illustrations Two summary paragraphs that complement the visual images and clearly discuss the main point Numerous examples of high-quality figures, page layouts, slides, posters, and web pages to help stimulate readers' ideas for their own presentations Numerous "before and after" examples to illustrate the contrast between poor and outstanding presentations

This book offers the first comprehensive guide to poster presentation at academic, scientific and professional conferences. Each chapter explores different factors that impact upon how posters function, and how they fit within today’s conference practices, as well as provides guidance on how to address compilation and presentation issues with the poster medium. Drawing from fields of education, psychology, advertising and other areas, the book offers examples of how theories may be applied to practice in terms of both traditional paper and electronic poster formats. Importantly, the book offers a critical examination of how academic and scientific posters are able to achieve their potential for knowledge dissemination, networking and knowledge transfer. The many new and challenging findings provide an evidence-based approach to help both novice and experienced presenters compile effective poster presentations, and to see how poster presentations can best be used to share knowledge, facilitate networking, and promote dialogue. Additionally, educators, employers, and conference organizers may use this book to re-evaluate how conferences meet the needs of today’s globally connected peer groups, and the benefit they provide at individual and group levels.

Garr Reynolds ist wieder da. Autor des über 150.000 Mal verkauften Bestsellers über Präsentationsde- sign und Vortragskunst. Er zeigt uns in dieser neuen Auflage seines Klassikers "Zen oder die Kunst der Präsentation", dass man sein Publikum mit klarer Darstellung und guten Geschichten am besten erreicht. Garr greift die gängige Vorstellung von "Folienpräsentationen" an und zeigt, wie wir anregende und erfolgreichere Präsentationen gestalten und vortragen können. Er inspiriert mit neuen Beispielen und zeigt Techniken, mit denen wir Lärm und Ablenkung des modernen Lebens ausblenden und die Zuhörerschaft fesseln können. Garr verbindet seine Argumente mit den Lehren des Zen und weist damit den Weg zu einfache- ren und effektiven Präsentationen, die vom Publikum angenommen, erinnert und - vor allem - beherzigt werden. "Presentation Zen änderte mein Leben und das Leben meiner Kunden. Die Philosophie, die Garr in seinem Buch so elegant erläutert, wird Ihr Publikum inspirieren. Denken Sie nicht einmal daran, eine Präsentation ohne dieses Buch zu halten!" (Carmine Gallo, Autor von "The Presentation Secrets of Steve Jobs") "Garr hat hinsichtlich der Art, wie wir über die Macht von Präsentationen denken, Neuland betreten. Noch wichtiger: Er hat eine ganze Generation von Kommunikatoren gelehrt, wie sie ihre Aufgabe besser erledigen. Verpassen Sie dieses Buch nicht." (Seth Godin, legendärer Präsentator und Autor von "We Are All Weird") "Wenn Ihnen Qualität und Klarheit Ihrer Präsentationen wichtig sind - und das sollten sie - nehmen Sie dieses Buch, lesen Sie jede Seite und beherzigen Sie seine Lehren. Presentation Zen ist ein zeitgenössischer Klassiker." (Daniel H. Pink, Autor von "Drive" und "Unsere kreative Zukunft")

Whether you are a university professor, researcher at a think tank, graduate student, or analyst at a private firm, chances are that at some point you have presented your work in front of an audience. Most of us approach this task by converting a written document into slides, but the result is often a text-heavy presentation saddled with bullet points, stock images, and graphs too complex for an audience to decipher—much less understand. Presenting is fundamentally different from writing, and with only a little more time, a little more effort, and a little more planning, you can communicate your work with force and clarity. Designed for presenters of scholarly or data-intensive content, Better Presentations details essential strategies for developing clear, sophisticated, and visually captivating presentations. Following three core principles—visualize, unify, and focus—Better Presentations describes how to visualize data effectively, find and use images appropriately, choose sensible fonts and colors, edit text for powerful delivery, and restructure a written argument for maximum engagement and persuasion. With a range of clear examples for what to do (and what not to do), the practical package offered in Better Presentations shares the best techniques to display work and the best tactics for winning over audiences. It pushes presenters past the frustration and intimidation of the process to more effective, memorable, and persuasive presentations.

Zur Zeit des viktorianischen Englands, getrieben von der Industriellen Revolution, hatte die Gruppe der Präraffaeliten, darunter Maler wie John Everett Millais, Dante Gabriel Rossetti und Edward Burne-Jones, das Ziel zu traditionellen Werten zurückzukehren. Dabei wollten sie die Ideale der italienischen Renaissance wiederbeleben, wobei sie sich am Realismus und an biblischen Themen orientierten.

Guide to Research Techniques in Neuroscience

Neuroscience is, by definition, a multidisciplinary field: some scientists study genes and proteins at the molecular level while others study neural circuitry using electrophysiology and high-resolution optics. A single topic can be studied using techniques from genetics, imaging, biochemistry, or electrophysiology. Therefore, it can be daunting for young scientists or anyone new to neuroscience to learn how to read the primary literature and develop their own experiments. This volume addresses that gap, gathering multidisciplinary knowledge and providing tools for understanding the neuroscience techniques that are essential to the field, and allowing the reader to design experiments in a variety of neuroscience disciplines. Written to provide a "hands-on" approach for graduate students, postdocs, or anyone new to the neurosciences Techniques within one field are compared, allowing readers to select the best techniques for their own work Includes key articles, books, and protocols for additional detailed study Data analysis boxes in each chapter help with data interpretation and offer guidelines on how best to represent results Walk-through boxes guide readers step-by-step through experiments
