I navigated this site for a total of 96 minutes and was very pleased with the results. This site is directed toward many age levels and could be used in the classroom by students ranging from the elementary level to the high school level. This site helps the user develop the key concepts in neuroscience and employs interesting and fun ways to explore the dynamics of the field by providing interactive experiments, charts, and illustrations. This site is obviously designed for students at a higher reading level, as some of the information is somewhat extensive. However, for the most part, this site could easily be adapted for use by younger students through teacher guidance and instruction, as it provides clear and concrete illustrations and entertaining demonstrations to help students develop the basic concepts of neuroscience. Although I did not use this site in a classroom, I believe it could easily be adapted for use in a classroom and could be a very useful tool that teachers could use to introduce the basic ideas found in the field of neuroscience, which would more than likely prompt students to want to find more infromation within the field on their own.Technical Remarks: This site is well organized and is very specific, breaking down topics into many subcategories that could be focused on by the instructor if used in a classroom. The site is easy to navigate as well. The use of color and entertaining photos also make the site asthetically pleasing and would definitely draw the interest of younger students who use the site.
