Genes to Cognition - great brain site

I was checking out iPhone apps when I stumbled upon one that teaches the parts of the brain. When I went to the maker's website I saw this incredible resource! Genes to Cognition is created by the Dolan DNA Learning Center at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory and I feel like I could spend days here. Have you tried it? If so, please share what you have done in the comments!

For me, the online or iPhone version of the brain simulation is pretty awesome, but I imagine there will be people salivating over these cognitive maps. The topics really range far from just the brain, including schizophrenia, autism, thinking and attention.

P.S. The Dolan DNA Learning Center also offers workshops for teachers!
