eBrain+ is a unique, interactive software application for neuroanatomy students. It includes a virtual dissection of the sheep brain that can be used either stand-alone or in conjunction with a laboratory course. Labeled photographs, dissection videos, and audio pronunciations introduce the content, which focuses on structure–function relationships. Quizzes, an interactive glossary with photographs and hyperlinks, activities, and games engage students in learning neuroanatomy. A comprehensive laboratory manual and the complete glossary are included in a printable format.

The “plus” in eBrain refers to several new features, in addition to compatibility with mobile devices.

  • eBrain+ incorporates gamification strategies to enhance the learner’s experience. eBrain+ has been redesigned to provide more engaging activities requiring user input. The active participation is followed up with constructive feedback on all quizzes and interactions.
  • Modules have the new Structure Synopsis feature that alphabetically lists neural structures, the functions mediated, and tips to help identify where the structure is located on the brain. Users simply select a structure of interest from that Module.
  • Anatomy Pin Quizzes feature embedded light boxes with descriptive feedback and close-up photos attached to each pin.
  • The new Concepts Quizzes let learners examine their global understanding of the brain’s structures and how they are integrated to mediate functions.
  • Word Quizzes have a more dynamic graphic interface and reward with correct answers.

eBrain+ is still in the same easy-to-use, relaxed format. All of the pronunciations, feedback, and additional information on the anatomy is available on demand, as is the enhanced NeuroGlossary, so users can easily access it when wanted.

Penelope L. Kuhn received her Ph.D. in Neuroscience from Georgetown University in Washington, DC. She has participated in research in the Lab of Viral and Molecular Pathogenesis of the NINDS under Monique Dubois-Dalcq, and in the Lab of Neuropsychology of the NIMH under Mort Mishkin. Currently, she is a professor in the Psychology Department at California State University, Chico. She is the director of the Laboratory of Neuroscience at CSUC where her career focus is on mentoring undergraduate students in neuroscience research methods and developing their research experiences in order to continue on into graduate studies. The majority of her students are awarded IRTA fellowships at the NIH and gain entry into MD or Neuroscience PhD programs. Her research areas of interest are the molecular mechanisms underlying the injury response in brain and spinal cord, and the cellular mechanisms underlying addiction.
