Essentials of Cognitive Neuroscience

Welcome to the companion site for Essentials of Cognitive Neuroscience. This website gives you access to the rich tools and resources available for this text.

On this website you will find resources for both instructors and students:

    For Instructors:
  • Sample syllabi
  • Exam questions

Please note that the resources for instructors are password protected and can only be accessed by instructors who register with the site.

    For Students:
  • Web clips. Brief presentations (6 to 12-or-so minutes long) by an expert in cognitive neuroscience or an allied discipline that further elucidate or elaborate on content presented in the text.
  • Author-narrated summary videos
  • Glossary
  • Interactive multiple choice questions
  • Web links. A curated collection of Web sites and video clips (many from YouTube), freely accessible on the internet, whose content complements content presented in the text. Web Link 1.1 deserves a special note because it accesses a 3D, rotatable, “dissectible” human brain with labels and descriptions, developed and hosted by Genes to Cognition Online.
    Resources are displayed in two ways:
