The Brain in Health and Disease — By Michael Rebhan, this site focuses on recent developments in the understanding, treatment and diagnosis of brain disorders (Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's
disease, Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease, schizophrenia, drug addiction, etc.). Includes information about major principles underlying the development of brain diseases, including a glossary, news articles, and links to brain science sites (news, databases, discussions, clinical trials, drugs, organizations, meetings, jobs for neuroscientists, pictures and videos).
Brain Mapping (Newton's Apple) — A few facts about early, and current, efforts to map the brain.
BrainPoke! — Incredibly neat! Tell the surgeon where to poke the brain. See the effect.
Brain Awareness Week 1998 — You missed it, but this is an ongoing project.
Center for Human Simulation
Cerebral Cortex I — More detail about neurons than you will probably ever need, but a great source of information.
Cerebral Cortex II — More detail about the structure of the cortex and the functions of the cortical lobes, than you will probably ever need, but a great source of information.
The Columbia Virtual Body — Columbia/HCA Healthcare provides elaborate presentations on a variety of systems of the body including the brain, digestive system, heart and skeleton. You must have the Macromedia Shockwave Player Plugin installed on your computer.
Comparative Mammalian Brain Collection — Major national resources for the study of brain anatomy from The National Museum of Health and Medicine,The University of Wisconsin, and Michigan State University.

The Nervous System — Explore the nervous system, with a little help from Jay Doc and your other friends at KU Med school.
The Nervous System — Yet another page that describes the nervous system, but includes some good photographs. Slow to load.
Neurolab Online — NeurOn (Neurolab Online) is a project that invites classrooms around the world to join NASA personnel on Neurolab space shuttle mission, STS-90, which launched April, 17, and landed May 3, 1998.
NeurOn Background — President George Bush and the Congress of the United States declared the 1990s to be the "Decade of the Brain." The Neurolab mission will conduct brain research to study neurological and behavioral changes in space.
