Many areas under The Nervous System would be useful in many Psychology courses including Introduction to Psychology, Physiological or Biological Psychology, and Sensation and Perception.

I am a nursing student and was required to sign up with MERLOT and navigate around. I completed the nervous system exercise and quiz. I like the self-paced learning. The animations in the exercise were simple, which makes learning easier. The fact that the quiz isn't a pass or fail creates less anxiety. A good exercise

(Faculty) Good overall review of many difficult topics. The self-paced capability should encourage those students who need additional time to review a subject to use this site for review.

Technical Remarks:

Ease of use is a plus and should encourage the use of this site for a review.

I like the simplicity of the animations and the little quiz at the end. I have linked it from my "Notes on the Web" and will also give it a go in a class lecture.

Technical Remarks:

Loads moderately fast on a 56K phone line. I think my students would stick to it after they see what it has to offer.
Used in course? Yes

This site has nice, simple, attractive animation that is easy to navigate. My students love it and have spontaneously commented to me about it. I like to use it as a supplement to my regular lecture notes, and as something they can work with on their own at home to reinforce what they're learning in lab and lecture.
