Title: Science Study Break - House M.D.
Author: Field, Leanne
Description: Audience members relished this close examination of "House M.D." Field discussed three popular episodes, which ranged in scientific accuracy from not bad to just dreadful. Attendees also learned how to play "The House Game" - an at-home entertainment where viewers can check correctness of diagnoses by searching in Stat!Ref or Gale Virtual Reference Library.About Science Study Break: Pop culture and the academy collide as Science Study Break features researchers from The University of Texas at Austin discussing the science reality in books, television and film. Past presentations have examined bioterrorism and its treatment in the Fox thriller “24,” artificial intelligence gone wild in “2001: A Space Odyssey,” the comic realities of Spider-Man and epidemiological models for the proliferation of zombies. Science Study Break takes place twice each semester.
