Welcome to Neuroscience Online, the Open-Access Neuroscience Electronic Textbook

This online, interactive courseware for the study of neuroscience is provided by the Department of Neurobiology and Anatomy at The University of Texas Medical School at Houston. The project is being developed under the direction of the Department Chair and Editor, John H. Byrne.

This content is intended to function as an online multimedia resource, and therefore is not supported as a downloadable or printable text. After you have taken the opportunity to explore this electronic textbook, please take a moment to participate in our brief user survey.

You have reached this version of Neuroscience Online by using an iOS or mobile device. Links with the HTML5 badge HTML5 have content optimized for iOS devices, however, not all animations are in HTML5. For best experience with NSO, we suggest use of a desktop computer with Flash capabilities.
