    "A study of visual culture in the teaching of the life sciences The creation and processing of visual representations in the life sciences is a critical but often overlooked aspect of scientific pedagogy. The Educated Eye follows the nineteenth-century embrace of the visible in new spectatoria, or demonstration halls, through the twentieth-century cinematic explorations of microscopic realms and simulations of surgery in virtual reality. With essays on Doc Edgerton's stroboscopic techniques that froze time and Eames's visualization of scale in Powers of Ten, among others, contributors ask how we are taught to see the unseen."--Project Muse.

    Trained judgment, intervention, and the biological gaze -- Facing animals in the laboratory -- Photography and medical observation -- Cinematography without film -- Cinema as universal language of health education -- Screening science -- Optical constancy, discontinuity, and nondiscontinuity in the Eameses' "Rough Sketch" -- Educating the high-speed eye -- On fate and specification -- Form and function -- Neuroimages, pedagogy, and society -- The anatomy of a surgical simulation.
