Research Channel

ResearchChannel was an educational television network based at the University of Washington in Seattle, Washington, and operated by a consortium of leading research and academic institutions which contributed science-related programming to viewers in the United States and in other countries via satellite and cable television.

The University of Washington subsidized the operation of ResearchChannel since its founding, without direct compensation from the ResearchChannel consortium. This included providing all staff time and efforts, satellite uplink, and commodity internet bandwidth.

In March 2010, citing budget issues, the University of Washington informed the ResearchChannel Board that UW would end this subsidy; and cease programming and uplinking the channel and maintaining the website. The Research Channel board was unable to find a new sponsor and service provider. At midnight on August 31, 2010, ResearchChannel was shut down on Galaxy 18, along with its broadcast on Dish Network, Comcast, and other terrestrial broadcasting services.

KUJH-LP channel 31, is an independent student television station owned and operated by the University of Kansas. The Student television station broadcast predominantly local news programs produced by University of Kansas students, as well as talk shows surrounding pop culture and sports. The station also airs club sports events.

Its primary purpose is to serve as a hands-on "laboratory" for its journalism students. Unlike KOMU-TV of Columbia, Missouri, it is not affiliated with any network (though it did air the Research Channel when local programming was not scheduled) and only utilizes cable TV channel 31 on Knology (formerly Sunflower Broadband) and channel 99 on AT&T U-Verse in Kansas City, Missouri to transmit its signal. Residents in the Residential Halls in the University of Kansas can also view it on RESNET 31 and digital channel 2-1.

Its signal reaches AT&T U-Verse subscribers in the Kansas City Metro, the broadcast area in which Lawrence, KUJH-TV's city of license, is located. It also reaches viewers in western Kansas City, Kansas through Midco on channel 31, a cable company which serves parts of Northeast Kansas.

NeuroNames is an integrated nomenclature for structures in the brain and spinal cord of the four species most studied by neuroscientists: human, macaque, rat and mouse. It offers a standard, controlled vocabulary of common names for structures, which is suitable for unambiguous neuroanatomical indexing of information in digital databases. Terms in the standard vocabulary have been selected for ease of pronunciation, mnemonic value, and frequency of use in recent neuroscientific publications. Structures and their relations to each other are defined in terms of the standard vocabulary. Currently NeuroNames contains standard names, synonyms and definitions of some 2,500 neuroanatomical entities.

The nomenclature is maintained by the University of Washington and is the core component of a tool called "BrainInfo". BrainInfo helps one identify structures in the brain. One can either search by a structure name or locate the structure in a brain atlas and get information such as its location in the classical brain hierarchy, images of the structure, what cells it has, its connections and genes expressed there. Information can be accessed by any of some 16,000 synonyms in eight languages.

NeuroNames is a source vocabulary of the Metathesaurus of the Unified Medical Language System. It is described in depth in the following three scientific articles:
