This site is Tutorial 2 in a set of online tutorials that
have been developed for the Centre for Psychology at Athabasca University. The main tutorial page describes the sites three main sections as:
- an initial section in which students work with an image-mapped graphic to
identify visually based information such as brain structures. In this section
students also read descriptions associated with the graphical information to
develop a verbal knowledge of the material.
- a second section in which students do a self-test matching visually based
information (e.g., brain structures) to labels;
- a third section consisting of multiple-choice self-test items that test student knowledge of the material presented in the tutorial.
This tutorial focuses on the structure of the neuron and includes references, suggested readings, and related links sections.
