Welcome – From the Editor

Welcome to the MERLOT Psychology Portal! The Psychology collection provides access to nearly 20 different types of materials (including online texts and online courses) across 15 psychology disciplines. The MERLOT Psychology Editorial Board manages the collection and oversees a peer review process that evaluates the applicability of the materials within the collection. We invite you to explore all that our collection has to offer. Our Board strives to review every Learning Object (LO) submitted for review. We have a multi-level review process for each LO, and use a standardized review form in assessing all LOs submitted to the Psychology collection.

The Brain from Top to Bottom!

A MERLOT CLASSIC

This site devoted to the brain includes an incredible amount of information. You can browse the site by topic, level of explanation (beginner, intermediate, & advanced), level of organization (cellular, molecular, neurological, psychological, & social), module, or guided tour.

The site already contains over 70 presentations on the brain (and it is still under development)! To give a sampling, the topics include: neurons, neural transmission, glial cells, memory, long-term potentiation, amnesia, how drug impact neurotransmitters, fear, anxiety, the evolution of the brain, the neuromuscular junction, and vision.
