Neurobiology

The following resources were developed for classroom use by high school biology teachers who participated in MCB-HHMI Outreach's Summer 2005 "Experimental Biology and Multimedia Workshop". This year's topic was "Neuroscience".

Keep in mind that lesson formats vary greatly because each was developed with a particular classroom in mind. All lessons align with state and national science standards as described within the lesson or in an accompanying file.
