Descriptions: Genes to Cognition (G2C) Online examines thinking and disorders of thinking across six levels of analysis: Genes ~ Biochemicals ~ Cells ~ Brain ~ Cognition (Behavior) ~ Environment. This interactive resource focuses on cognitive disorders, cognitive processes, and research approaches. A dynamic map of a network of connected topics facilitates exploration of a library of more than 750 unique items. A linear Selected Items menu above each map can be used to tour selected content. Links to other sites, to video short lectures and to news items are included. This site also has a blog. Note: Adobe FlashPlayer required for full use.

Descriptions: This atlas is a neuroimaging educational tool, showing trans-axial, saggital and coronal views of the brain in cross-sectional MRI, CT and nuclear imaging techniques, with side-by-side navigation. Image series are provided for the normal brain and for its disease states: cardiovascular, neoplastic, degenerative and inflammatory/infectious. In disease states, clicking a link reading "clinical" will bring the user to a page of text explaining the case being viewed. The "Top 100 Brain Structures" feature is a study tool allowing the user to view structures individually, or to view a group of brain structures marked with pointers, labelled or unlabelled. The site is co-sponsored by the Departments of Radiology and Neurology at Brigham and Women's Hospital, Harvard Medical School, its Countway Library of Medicine and the American Academy of Neurology.

This online, interactive courseware for the study of neuroscience is provided by the Department of Neurobiology and Anatomy at The University of Texas Medical School at Houston. The project is being developed under the direction of the Department Chair and Editor, John H. Byrne.
A companion resource to this textbook, Neuroanatomy Online, has been created in collaboration with Medical Neuroscience course director, Nachum Dafny, and is easily accessible from the text.
Descriptions: This collection of images by Frank Netter, M.D. and other excellent medical illustrators is the online version of the CIBA collection. Some collections can be browsed here, along with two texts: Netter's Concise Atlas of Orthopaedic Anatomy and Netter's Head and Neck Anatomy for Dentistry. Note: Although many of these illustrations can be viewed free of charge, downloading them- for use in presentations or for publication, for instance- can only be done at a substantial cost.
