  • Neurology, Neuroscience, and Neurosurgery Websites -- Queen Square Library, University of London
    ["For neuroscience professionals, educators, and students, the University of London's Queen Square Library has compiled this extensive resource list of websites related to the history, science, and practice of neurology, neuroscience, and neurosurgery. These resources are helpfully annotated and sorted into categories. For example, in the Neuro-websites category, visitors will find a diverse selection of educational websites as well as links to more specific research lists. Meanwhile, in Neuro-history, visitors will find resources related to the history of neurology as well as the history of science and medicine more broadly. Educators may be especially interested in the Neuro-images section, which highlights sources of photographs and videos that may be of use in the classroom. Many of these images may also be appreciated by members of the general public interested in learning more about neuroscience. [MMB]"] -- MMB, The Scout Report, January 13, 2017, Volume 23, Number 2)

  • BrainCraft -- PBS Digital Studios
    ["How do your limbic systems and prefrontal cortex inform your tendency to procrastinate? How has art played a role in human evolution? Why do so many people love sugar - and can it actually be an addiction? These questions and more are explored in BrainCraft, a PBS Digital Series dedicated to "psychology, neuroscience, and why we act the way we do." Created by science educator and report Vanessa Hill, new 4-6 minute episodes of BrainCraft are released each week. These highly entertaining and informative episodes may be viewed on BrainCraft's YouTube Channel, a link to which is provided in the Episodes section of this website. Those active on Facebook or Twitter may also want to follow the show via social media to learn about new episode topics."] -- MMB, The Scout Report, November 18, 2016, Volume 22, Number 45

  • Neurophilosophy -- The Guardian
    ["The Guardian hosts a regular Neurophilosophy blog dedicated to news stories and research related to Neurophilosophy. Authored by neurobiologist Mo Costandi, the Neurophilosophy blog covers a wide range of topics, including new research about the relationship between gut bacteria and the brain; research about the relationship between both conscious and unconscious thoughts and the experience of pain; and the development of artificial skin that can recognize heat and touch. Costandi writes in an engaging, accessible style and covers topics that will be of interest to anyone fascinated by human biology. There are also reference links for those who want to further pursue a given topic. Neurophilosophy contains all of Costandi's most recent articles; but visitors may want to check out Costandi's personal blog (which readers can find a link to by clicking on his name at the top of the page) for information about his other writing endeavors." -- MMB, The Scout Report, August 26, 2016, Volume 22, Number 34]

  • Neurohacks: BBC Future-- Since 2012, BBC Future, a special section of available to non-UK visitors, has presented in depth coverage on the latest trends in science, technology, environment, and health by way of various thematic columns. Neurohacks, a delightful colmun form contributor Tom Stafford, discusses neuroscience and the psychology of everyday life, with an emphasis on the complexity of the theories that underly the experiences most people take for granted. Recent articles have explored the psychology of why we forget names (and what to do about it), the deleterious effects of the Internet (it makes us think we're smarter than we actually are), an explanation for why babies laugh (we don't really know), and why we make such bad choices while gambling (because we don't understand probability). For readers who are looking for entertaining insights from an academic psychologist (Stafford teaches and does research at the University of Sheffield), Neurohacks will not disappoint.
