Abstract

The field of neuroscience has experienced enormous growth over the past few decades. Educators look to neuroscience to become better teachers; lawyers and judges explore the literature to gain insight into court cases; and marketers consider the use of brain scans to glean information about consumer preferences. With this increased interest in brain research, neuroscientists are often invited to share their work with lay audiences. Chudler and Bergsman use this "Feature" article to showcase Internet-based resources that can help neuroscientists explain their work to the general public and K-12 audiences. These Internet resources feature videos, images, animations, and other outreach tools that are accessible to lay audiences and that speakers can adapt for their own presentations. The abundance of online resources provides a wealth of material for neuroscientists seeking to teach the public about brain research.
