Advanced undergraduate

Brain Biodiversity Bank

Very well done atlases of a variety of animals including humans, sheep, dolphins, and axolotl.  

 

Great vies on most with cell and fiber stains as well as MRI images on human and dolphin.

Lecture Notes in Computational Neuroscience

This is pdf of lecture notes on an advanced class in computational neuroscience.  The notes are extremely well written and comprehensive, and are akin more to a free textbook on the field rather than a set of simple lecture notes.

The Human Brain

Sections, views, histology, and MRI of the human brain.

Measuring salivary cortisol in the behavioral neuroscience laboratory

The authors describe a laboratory exercise that works well with and is very interesting to undergraduate students.  Students  devise an experiment to test the effect of some variable (such as a mild stressor or circadian rhythm) on cortisol ("stress hormone") levels in humans. 

 

 

Learning and Memory: From Brain to Behavior

Environmental estrogens

Laboratory Exercises in Physiological Psychology

This is an out of print resource that is still available used.  Has lab exercises on sexual receptivity after ovariectomy, thirst after angiotensin, rewarding brain stimulation, etc.

Behavioral Endocrinology

From the publisher: "This popular behavioral endocrinology text provides detailed information on what hormones are, how they affect cells, and how such effects can alter the behavior of animals, including humans. Presenting a broad continuum of levels of analysis, from molecular to evolutionary, the book discusses how genes work, the structure of cells, the interactions of endocrine organs, the behavior of individuals, the structure of social hierarchies, and the evolution of mating systems."

An Introduction to Behavioral Endocrinology

From the publisher: "The text describes interactions among hormones, brain, and behavior from a historical perspective, emphasizing connections among key theories and tracing the emergence of important hypotheses.

Hormones and Brain Plasticity

From the publisher: "The nervous system has a remarkable capacity for self-reorganization, and in this first systematic analysis of the interaction between hormones and brain plasticity, Luis Miguel Garcia-Segura proposes that hormones modulate metaplasticity in the brain. He covers a wide variety of hormones, brain regions, and neuroplastic events, and also provides a new theoretical background with which to interpret the interaction of hormones and brain remodeling throughout the entire life of the organism."
