- Neurosciences on the Internet: extensive database of links to neuroscience sites (courtesy of Dr Neil Busis)
- BioInteractive: wonderful interactive animations of lots of things, including elements of the nervous system (courtesy of the Howard Hughes Medical Institute)
- Cell-Tissue-Body Explorer: more interactive animations, including elements of the nervous system (courtesy of Dr Tomaz Amon)
- The Joy of Visual Perception: an on-line book by Peter Kaiser
- Movement Control 1: models and movies of movement, including a lamprey swimming (from the SANS group at KTH, Stockholm)
- Movement Control 2: models and movies of movement, including a salamander swimming and walking (from BIRG, EPFL, Switzerland)
- Quicktime movie of cursor movement to target, from the paper, Instant Neural Control of a Movement Signal by Serruya et al, Nature 416:141-142, 2002 (as talked about in the Neural Coding lectures).
- The red circle represents a target 0.6 ° visual angle (13 mm on the screen). The green circle represents the neural control cursor. Each time the subject touches the target, he receives a reward and a new target appears at a random location.
- Bee foraging: the work of Dr Read Montague's group.
