This really is an outstanding resource. I often dislike creating a log-in for sites (I have too many passwords to remember already), but it was well worth it. The material starts from very basic concepts and makes a smooth transition into more complex biological systems. I could see this as a complete textbook replacement for an undergraduate Biopsychology class.
