This is a fantastic material really understand the brain parts and sections. It is fully recommended for biology and related courses.

Technical Remarks:

In the class, the use is simplified enough for students and makes the material of the brain straightforward for learning. Since most learners are visual, it sticks absolutely for most student.

This site is a great resource for reviewing brain structures as it includes explanations of the different parts of the brain as well as pictures of each structure and how they fit together.  It is easy to navigate and provides a great deal of information without putting too much on each page.  It also provides quizzes following each section with answers and explanations for each question.  It does not include any sort of print-out that students could hand in though.

This is a great sight for the basics of the structure and function of the brain. It is easy to use. There are quizzes at the end of each section. I particularly like the way the brain is separated and then put back together. As each piece is placed where it belongs an explanation of the function of that part is provided. Great for into courses.
