This resource is designed for students new to neuroscience. The content is simple, covering foundational concepts, and is accompanied by a video version of the text (reinforcing UDL), "test yourself" questions, and additional resources. This resource is ideal for students to use prior to class discussion on the topics so they can learn vocabulary and start thinking about the basics. Additionally, it is clear how to navigate the resource. I will definitely be using this resource in my introductory classes moving forward.
