Understanding the Brain and the Nervous System

Understanding the Brain and the Nervous System

This popular publication was produced with the Society for Neuroscience with NIH funding, but all 6,000 copies were distributed within two months of publication. Now, Gail Taylor of the University of Texas at San Antonio has generously placed the entire document on the web for access by everyone. The document is in pdf format for viewing with Adobe Acrobat Reader (available free from Adobe) and each section and activity is a separate file for easy searching, downloading and printing.
