The Dolan DNA Learning Center at Cold Spring Harbor, NY has created this fantastic website to explore neuroscience, and it is focused on cognitive disorders, cognitive processes, and research approaches. There are many activities on the site, and each is broken down into six categories of analysis, "Genes", "Biochemicals", "Cells", "Brain Anatomy", "Cognition", and "Environment". Thus, clicking on "Bipolar Disorder" under the "Disorders" tab at the top of the page, will take the visitor to a "subway line" at the top of the page. There are several "stops" on the line, and each allows the visitor to learn about the key areas of bipolar disorder research. Scrolling over the stops opens up a small window with a blurb about the content to view. The blurb also shows whether the content is a video, an application, animation, etc. Visitors wishing to see all the research available, should click on the network map, which is the screen behind the smaller "subway line" page. The "Teacher Feature", under the "Targeted Content" tab, and next to the small model of the brain, offers lessons on such topics as autism, memory, and ethical decision-making. "Teacher Pages," "Student Worksheets", and "Test Items" are offered in PDF form.
