Information About the Brain

This is a free, online textbook/course that provides content as well as illustrations.  "To correctly interpret the information transmitted through these venues, we need a better understanding of basic concepts related to the brain. By providing students with a conceptual framework about the brain, we significantly increase our chances of producing an informed public that has the tools to interpret brain research findings. Accordingly, it is the goal of this supplement to provide teachers and students with correct information regarding the brain, its role in the nervous system, and how it provides us with our sense of self."
