I surveyed several portions on the neurophysiology and drug addiction module. I
have materials of my own that I have prepared and revised since 1996 on this
topic. I have previously drawn on resources from NIH (NIDA in particular) and
find them extremely useful. This new NIH neurophysiology and addiction module
has some new graphics, animations, etc. that are very instructive. The student
portion of the site is excellent, and there are plenty of instructor preparation
materials to guide the teacher.

Technical Remarks:

High quality materials and information based on recent research (e.g. PET Scans)
in the neurophysiology and addiction module. I have not looked at the other
