?The exhibits and materials collected here are intended to make it possible for you to share some of the kinds of experiences which suggest that indeed the nervous system may be the heart of the matter and to think about the implications and the new questions this raises.??? This website from neuroscience professors at Bryn Mawr College contains links to interactive exhibits, resource pages, essays, and lecture notes.

Literature, Cognition, and the Brain: (http://www2.bc.edu/~richarad/lcb/)

?a web page featuring research at the intersection of literary studies, cognitive theory, and neuroscience. This page includes abstracts, reviews, accounts of work forthcoming or in progress, links to related web sites, and a regularly updated annotated bibliography?

Neuroscholar: http://www.neuroscholar.org/

“A neuroscientific knowledge management system for the published literature” (http://ostatic.com/neuroscholar ).?? Development of this software is the flagship project of the Biomedical Knowledge Engineering Research Group.? They specialize in computational approaches to computing, using “Natural Language Processing and Knowledge Engineering”, in order to process information from the published scientific literature.?? Their quest is to apply this methodology to extracting, organizing and storing scattered knowledge fragments in order to build representations of knowledge out of facts, interpretations and relations, by developing stable, open-source software.???? As they put it, “The subject of neuroscience is complex, broad and deep. It uses data from many disciplines: anatomy, physiology, chemistry, physics, molecular biology, cognitive science and ethology to name a few. It traverses many temporal and spatial scales; from milliseconds to generations, and angstroms to meters. The brain itself has been called ‘the most complex object in the known universe’ (by Nobel-Prize winner James Watson) and the number of individual cells, and connections between cells is (literally) astronomical. The biggest challenge to understanding the large-scale organization of the brain across systems, modalities and scales is therefore complexity of our own data. We contend that knowledge management systems could be built that address this challenge.”
