Biological Bases of Behavior

  • http://faculty.washington.edu/chudler/neurok.html
    This site was created by a professor at the University of Washington. This particular page is geared for kids but has many activities that are appropriate (and fun) to use with an introductory psychology class. The page includes links to neuroscience on the internet as well as experiments and activities. In addition, there is an "Ask the Neuroscientist" that is helpful for those obscure questions that students generate.   Some of the activities include building a model of the brain using modeling clay. There is a printable coloring book, useful for exams and identifying parts of the brain.   The site includes directions for games that must be played outside such as "synaptic tag" that would be a good way to take a class outside during nice weather.  It is also a way to help visual and kinesthetic learners grasp these concepts.

    This is a compendium of interactive sites related to the biological bases of behavior. The site contains a number of tutorials as well as interactive exercises. There are even some discussions in which students can participate. There are links to many other sites, many at other universities. It contains a wealth of information that will help students better visualize the brain and the connection between brain and behavior. The site is exceedingly well organized and easy to navigate.
