This comprehensive collection of multimedia resources and inquiry-based activities tied to the National Science Education Standards help teachers and students learn about the structure, function and cognitive aspects of the human brain. The packet includes a teacher's manual, student manual, DVD of videos, and a CDROM of accompanying materials.
These online teaching modules present case vignettes and video presentations on areas of neuroscience research that are relevant to clinicians. The first module explores research on cognitive deficits, a core feature of schizophrenia, as an example of how translational neuroscience can provide clues for treatment development. The second module describes animal models of fear that have informed human studies of fear/safety, anxiety, and anxiety disorders.
