Choice architecture is the practice of influencing choice by “organizing the context in which people make decisions.”
To understand how to design a good system using choice architecture we need to understand how our brains operate.

How To Create A Scientific Illustration
Simple steps to ensure correct creation of scientific illustrations.
This short instructional video was created as part of a biology practicum at Ryerson University under the supervision of Dr. Karen Puddephatt &
Dr. Charlotte de Araujo. Support was also received from the Ryerson University Learning and Teaching Office.
Sex Reversal as a Reproductive Strategy
Adult sex-reversal is the change of primary sex characteristics to another sex during adulthood. It is an extreme example of phenotypic plasticity – the ability of an animal to change its form due to a cue from the environment.
This video is targeted to university students interested in evolutionary patterns. It is geared towards students that already understand basic evolution principles.
Intro to Mendelian Genetics & the Punnett Square
This video offers an introduction to genetics. It covers terms such as loci, gene, allele, homozygous, heterozygous, genotype, phenotype, dominant, recessive, and the Law of Segregation.
It was made specifically for people that are visual and tactile learners.
Organization - Visually Explaining Entropy
The amazing thing about physics is that it is constantly seen in our daily life. You constantly live with entropy acting upon you every day. The ability for life to organize is a powerful and often overlooked characteristic.
At first glance, it appears that life can counteract entropy. It can build complex, large molecules, organelles, tissues, or organs. This is incredible to me and therefore was in inspiration for the video. I recognize, however, that this piece is an oversimplification of the process, because it implies life always works in the direction of organization, which is not the case. It harnesses it.
