Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory’s Genes to Cognition (G2C) provides information about modern neuroscience. This interactive website is designed for users to learn about cognitive disorders and processes, as well as research approaches for such disorders. Neurological disorders include ADHD, autism, schizophrenia, and others. G2C presents interactive diagrams and maps, making it easy for users to explore and learn. For example, G2C Brain, an interactive 3D model of the brain, has 29 structures that can be rotated in three-dimensional space. Each structure has information on brain disorders, brain damage, case studies, and links to modern neuroscience research. The website also provides teachers with free resources, including teacher pages, worksheets, and test items.
Plus: A free iPad/iPhone app called 3D Brain accompanies the website. The app enables users to view sections of the brain, along with labels and explanations for each of the brain’s functions.
