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.
Keywords: anatomy, animation, biomedical ethics, blog, brain mapping, genetics, images, links, neurology, neuroscience, news, physiology, video
Provider: Whole Brain project - UC-San Diego
Descriptions: The Whole Brain Catalog is the flagship project of the Whole Brain Project at the University of California - San Diego. It is an open source, downloadable, multi-scale virtual catalog of the mouse brain and its cellular components, providing zoomable 3D views of structures and their surroundings deep inside the mouse brain. The data is also brought to life with simulation and animation. "In providing open source and collaborative tools, the Whole Brain Project allows neuroscience researchers to make new connections with collaborators and newly discovered data. Combining previously unconnected databases across a single network make possible new and exciting insights about the brain."

Provider: Dept. of Neurobiology and Anatomy, UT Medical School, Houston
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.
Provider: Network for Computational Nanotechnology
Descriptions: Supported by the National Science Foundation, this site is designed for and by the nanotech research community, providing tools and support for nanotech theory, modeling and simulation, and a forum in which to share knowledge within and between different nanotech research areas. This site is also a good resource for teachers, supplying curriculum items in the form of images, videos and learning modules.
