Cell Membranes - role, function and problems

I have just finished posting a series of four videos on the cell membrane:

The videos are an introduction to membranes and cover:
  • Why do cells and organelles have membranes?
  • The function of membranes in the cell
  • The structure and components of the membrane
  • The problems solved by having membranes
  • The problems caused by having membranes
  • The role of proteins in the membrane
  • How cells move material actively and passively across membranes
  • How cells move information across the membranes - the receptors
Each video comes with a free information sheet that summarises the key points in the video and defines the key terms used.
