Animated Tutorials: Neurobiology/Biopsychology

Sumanas Inc has created a number of animations to help explain the basics of neurobiology/biopsychology. A complete list of animations can be found below.

Please be aware some of the animations need the Adobe Shockwave plug-in which can be downloaded at Shockwave. Intel-based Macintoch users should be sure to read the special TechNote regarding the Shockwave Player.
