List of EASA98 Finalists
Thanks to all the people who took  time to make comments on this web site.
The site is under constant revision; I will try to incorporate your many valuable suggestions.
Thanks again.

This collection of materials, which supported several undergraduate-level psychology courses at the University of Plymouth (UK), won the 1998 Teaching and Learning Award of the Universities and Colleges Information Services Association (UCISA). The site is arranged by course level (years one through three) and by the topics covered in each course. The Year one lecture materials are the most developed, listing each topic, its aim, the content covered, and the learning objectives. Year one coverage includes Neurotransmission, Depression, Schizophrenia, Hormones & Stress, and Animal Behaviour. Most sections (all levels) contain a lecture overview, extensive graphics from transparencies used in class, audio clips, and animated images. Some online interactive learning activities may require JavaScript or Java.

commented :
The Biological Bases of Behaviour Site at the University of Plymouth is a very detailed site of lecture support material for courses taught in the Department of Psychology there. The material has a number of noteable features such as approximate download times for those using a modem, interactive tests and good use of animated gifs to illustrate biological processes ( see this movie of the events thought to be involved in neurotransmission ).

commented ..
One of the best web courses on behavior with a strong background in neurobiology. Appropriate for college students and AP high school biology students.
Extensive, in-depth content that makes excellent use of diagrams, graphs, photos, videos, applets, and audio clips.
To take advantage of everything in this site, you will need to download a number of plug-ins, and you will need to visit this large site several times.

This is undoubtedly one of the best college course sites about behavior on the web! The support materials provided here are extensive; the content is excellent, and the graphs, photographs, biographical materials, and links are of equal quality. Professor Kenyon begins with an extensive discussion of the scientific method, and uses phrenology as the "bad" example, and the dopamine-Parkinson's disease link as the "good" science example. In truth, only the last few topics are directly related to animal behavior, but a firm footing in the comprehensive neurobiology offered in the preceding topics will only make the later material better. Each of the topic-links provide extensive, deep content with all of the graphic, video, and audio "extras."

commented ...Biological Bases of Behaviour - University of Plymouth psychologists have put together a mind-blowing site. Well not quite...but it is an interesting and apparently award-winning site that brings to the Web support material for courses on the Biological Bases of Behaviour, taught by Dr Paul Kenyon. There is plenty on the likes of hormones and stress, stress and behaviour, drugs and anxiety and of course sex. If that caught your attention then you might be disappointed to read what Kenyon has to say as he discusses the role of hormones in sexual behaviour, rather than the nitty gritty. Although he does pose some interesting questions about how to decide on treatment for paedophiles? (8 January 1999) DB support

are from the University of Plymouth comments: I think it is great, I would like to have more information about the neurotransmitters comments: good site. thanks for putting it together. comments: excellent, Robert D.Robinson psych major, U of Calgary comments: PURE,DEAD BRILLIANT, R.D. Laing, 1966 comments: The loading speed was excellent, even on the internet from Babbage, while the overall clarity and organisation of this site, is equally as good. Much more interesting than boring handouts, which require no effort to obtain and are simply filed away and forgotten !.
George Etchison The info on neurotransmitters was very interesting and easy to understand , but I would like to know more on how different drugs such as caffein affect that part of the central nervous system. comments: VERY GOOD, ALTHOUGH A LITTLE OVER THE TOP! comments: this website is all very pretty, but relatively useless. The information takes far too long to load - maybe a reduction of irrelevent pictures could speed it up. The print outs were also of little value as these were often too wide for A4 or contained diagrams which spanned between two pages, i suggest aligning the site so that relevant printouts are divided so as to print like a book. Thanks comments: superb! I only wish we had access to the computers in 101 and 133 in the evenings as the Babbage and Library are usually too full! comments: nice presentation, I,m in canada so its a long link. Enjoyed the page. If you can find a PET scan say glucose metabolism during rest and during the solution of a math problem, could be illustrative of functional aspect. again congrats. comments: you need to fix up our chat so people go comments: I found this sight to be very interesting and useful; loading speed excellent, the only suggestion would be to change the background colours to enhance the graphic imaging. comments: EXCELLENT-QUICK TO LOAD, VERY COMPREHENSIVE comments: My friend had to go to a mental hospital because of the drugs that she took so I wanted to learn about it because it made me sad comments: very cool comments: Thanks a lot for all. Ineed to know more about stress hormones as a cause for acute M.I. comments: It was listed in a web search,info is very good here,thanks! comments: when printing the picture of the human brain structure, the right hand side is cut off slightly. Maybe the margins should be changed. comments: The graphs are getting cut off on the right hand side of the page, the margins need to be looked at again comments: The subdivisions of the adrenal gland, the picture is only half complete. comments: The graphs are too big to fit onto a page, when printed. As the keys are getting cut off. comments: excellent, I'm studying for exams and found this page very usefull comments: couldnotaccess the panic-anxiety page, which was what I was looking for comments: Fantastic!!! If I pass my biochem exam tomorrow I will write back and let you know. You've certainly given me a good chance. comments: I hate downloading anything, I would like the audio without download, very frustrated I know I want to know about receptor site stuff but can't find it from here! comments: Why only on rats? comments: very handy to suplement lecture notes, but loading speed is extreamly slow if saving more than one topic! comments: Great, but too slow.. comments: It's very usefull. But coming from the states, it's pretty slow loading. comments: IT IS VERY GOOD. I WILL LIKE TO KNOW THE SPECIFIC EFFCTS OF CERTAIN HORMONES ON THE BRAIN comments: Very informative! comments: it goes off man comments: This just incredible. The Ideas and knowledges are well expresses and written in such a way that a simple professor like me could understand. Thank you comments: terrific comments: very good comments: The resource has been very helpful for my revision program and has been a lot less boring than just reading texts. Thanks comments: Excellent. Thank you for doing this comments: We thorught that the learning resource was absolutely amazing - and we're not being sarcastic! comments: Some of the pages on this site are too much to load into a PC Printer. Perhaps reducing the picture sizes might help. comments: Very useful for the course. Essential reading to understand the subject. Very good! comments: Nicely presented page and graphics. Well done. comments: check spelling; estrus cycle of which organism? comments: positive and negative reinforcement comments: I hoped for more information about especific neurotransmitters, their biochemistry and action. Catarina from Portugal. comments: Thank you- this is very helpful. Good website comments: Interested in the effect of rogesteron antibodies on maternal behviour comments: I "surfed' here while trying to gather information about the effects of amphetamine use. This is a GREAT site. comments: Thank u 4 going 2 the trouble involved in putting together such a site. I appreciate it 4 several reasons. I am a psychology student working on a doctorate, but have been in the communications industry 4 over 20 yrs. I help other students to utilize the resources of the internet a assist in their reasearch etc. thus resources such as yours r greatly appreciated! In addition, I was in a serious automobile accident last year & sustained a brain injury, so I'm having 2 learn 2 accomadate 2 my neuro-deficits, so having access to your information helpes me as I relearn or confirm what I have studied b4. I have several suggestions 4 improvements 2 your site. As u stated, these files can take a long time to access & print out successfully. While it is a convience 2b able 2 pull 1 document, it is sometimes easier in the long run for it 2b indexed so that the graphics or tables which r frequently large files & if they r accessed seperately can b accomodated by most printers (buffers). U might look @ The Virtual Hospital, internet site @ the U of Iowa, check out the multi-media teaching files & seminars, "Dissection of the Human Brain" & Psychopharmacology seminar". It would b nice 2 have sample questions or interactive testing available, NYU has a good interactive test program associated with their psychiatry department that u might wish 2 look @ comments: excellent comments: I was unable to retrieve some of the information comments: Very nice & clear! Thank you for such a good site on dopamine and schizophrenia. I found it very interesting. However you say that there are two types of dopamine receptors - It is my understanding that there are more than two. Also you say there is no difference in D1 sz vs. D1 control There is a article saying the opposite in Nature Magazine 385, 578-579 and 634 (1997) comments: cool comments: good, I liked the examples the sound bites and animated examples comments: The detail was highly useful...however, the speed at which this page loaded was quite slow. comments: I thought that this resource was too confusing for people tting to do a report on ACTH... Web Page on Sexuality A very nice page and I am appreciative of the time and effort that you put into it. Also, I went to a conference a while back and Richard Green (The second author on the Gladue, et al LH rebound study you cite.) stated in response to a question that there had been no success in trying to replicate the study. Dorner had some earlier data which I think the Gladue study was an attempt to replicate. Bill Dragoin -- William B. Dragoin, Ph.D. Professor and Head Department of Psychology & Sociology Georgia Southwestern State University Americus, Georgia 31709 comments: Excellent comments: I got into here via Macs in room 133 - very fast link up! comments: The Best site yet, congrats! comments: Hi, I'm very interested the lecture, especially the part about testicular feminization syndrome. And I have a favour to ask of you. Could you send me some materials on this syndrome, 'cause if it is possible. My e-mail is Thanks. Svetlana, Russia, Siberian State University comments: wonderful - a wealth of information ; had what I needed and more comments: nice job of putting text and graphics together comments: great comments: fabulous! comments: The internet neuroscience teaching resource is unbelievable. I will use your resource in two ways. First I teach a non-majors biology class at Penn and I use the internet in the classroom to present my notes to the students. ( I haven't put the time into developing the figures the way you have and I can only admire what you have done. (My husband is working on an on-line physics textbook which you might like to see at: I will also use the sheep dissetion resource in a workhop for HS teachers I"m doing with several other faculty members and graduate students from the Institute of Neuroscience at Penn. Thank you so sharing your vision and tremendous resource with the rest of us in the neuroscience community. Jackie Tanaka University of Pennsylvania comments: fast, clear, easy to use. thanks. comments: I thought that this learning resource was very helpful in the fact that you could access it at anytime, whereas in the library the books are not always there. comments: I was really impressed with it! Thanks for putting it on the web! comments: wow...thank you so much! i was looking everywhere for pictures like these. comments: Dear Sir: Im a first year student for PHD in Neurosciences, and i work with 2 grade students, who works with me at my Lab, they were who discovered this site, and the use it in their classes, in secret, after 3 weeks they confess and show me your webb site, its great, really, clear and direct, usefull for students and for teachers, so please recive my congratulations. Med. Vet. Carlos Blanco. Area de Anatomia, Facultad de Ciencias Veterinarias. Universidad de Buenos Aires. comments: Hi - Thanks from Carroll College of Wisconsin. We performed ovariectomies in physiology lab without conclusive results. Our professor left it up to us to find helpful sites like this. It was well organized and very interesting. comments: just fantastic! comments: As an OAC student I found this resource and it' s layout both informative and inovative. It was the originality and creativity which caught my attention and prompted me to look further, Excellent Work! comments: I have just recently begun using the web as a means of resurch and I am amazed at the amount of junk I have to muddel through. However, when I hit on a site like this, it makes it worth my effort. It was clearly presented, contained helpful links, and was even entertaining. Excellent! comments: very helpful and intuitive comments: Very interesting page except for the spice girls...I don't care for them much comments: Very impressive site. I will have a good look around, Vernon Tupper, CSU Bathurst, NSW, Australia, comments: I am currently doing a behavioral study on the effects of amphetamine microdialysis into the nucleus accumbens, and found some very useful information on your learning resources page. My name is: Pedro Galvan, and I am dong this work in the laboratory of Dr. Joe L. Martinez, Jr. at U. of Texas San Antonio. comments: The learning resource is great, however I would like to see more info on the research findings about the role of neurotransmitters in schizophrenia . D.T 1997 comments: Excellent coverage, thank you ! comments: very impressive comments: GREAT!! comments: You must have descended from Heaven. Only just started looking but can already see very useful materials for many courses (I'm a Psychology lecturer on Biological side.) If I manage to sort out the other relevant sites, etc we are finding I'll ask our WWW person to see about setting up a link so your students can benefit as well as ours. (One obviously relevant connection here - which I'm sure you will already have - would be to the human equivalent. I've got the address but I'll check through what you've already collected first. Thanks, Keith Morgan. comments: I find your site very interesting, useful and well done; I couldn't however find the reference for the Geller-Seifter paradigm. comments: This resource has been exceptionally helpfull to back up your lectures, especially the inclusion of other research articles and alternative sources of information. One area that may help when it comes to revision could possibly be the listing of a wide variety of exam questions as the past papers rarely give questions that can be related to each topic area. Thanks. comments: Really liked your page. The information hit home on the CAH women. When I saw the episode John Stossel did about 3 years ago and then the updated version this past week (1/98) I had wanted to find out more information on this subject and gosh, you provided a gool deal. I am totally hetro but ALWAYS felt different from my peers. I had little or no interest in children, marriage, and have always HATED fussing with my hair. Thank god I have beautiful hair. Anyhow your site is very interesting and a wealth of information. comments: I think this is a wonderful learning resource - entertaining as well as informative and the best I've seen of the university home pages on the web.
Dr. Anna E. Ross, Associate Professor of Biology I've just discovered your Biological Bases of Behaviour web site. What a wonderful resource. I'm teaching Animal Behavior this term and I'll be referring my students to your site. The material on the history of the field and the ethological experiments is wonderful. (Many of the same examples I use in class.) I really like the illustrations you have compiled. I hope it's ok if I use some during a class presentation... of course I will include a complete citation and documentation... Showing a couple of the images should whet my students' appetites so they'll want to see you materials for themselves. 05comments: An excellent presentation of information and relevant links. The site acts as an excellent starting point in this area and in fact covers a great deal of the material already in fairly comprehensive detail. Thank you. comments: very informative and interesting comments: fenomenal! congratulations! one of the best I ever saw! comments: Your information was very informative bit it takes so long to load, at the moment I'm still waiting for it to load. Other than your information is really interesting and helpful my research paper I have to do. Thankyou! comments: Very good, much better than my own professor's. was lots of help. Just visiting from UC Davis. comments: BRILLIANT WORK.....I SHOULD THANK YOU !!!!!! comments: well organized and thorough comments: Excellent resource. (Might be useful to break up into smaller linked pages.) - David at comments: Please upgrade previous comment from "Excellent" (A) to A-double-plus. I had hit your animal behaviour page -- hadn't understood extent of your superb work. -David (again) teaching biopsych in Fredericton, Canada comments: AWESOME!!!! comments: I thought that it was very informative comments: excellent-fast and informative
suppressed 05comments: More easily understood than my lecturer this morning!!! comments: I found this learning resource a great help! It was very informative and easy to read. comments: You have got to be kidding. SHORTEN THIS (*^*(^& PAGE!!! Have you never heard of subdirectories?!? With one of the fastest modems and the best pentium on the market, this took all night to load. comments: Wow! Very interesting!!! I'm a Psych major at OSU and found this fascinating, thanks! comments: How many neurotransmitters has science dicovered up until now? comments: Very good comments: I object to the necessity of including the dated and sexist photos of women to illustrate direction in an otherwise very useful site. 05comments: I think is very carefully and toughtfully done; I suggest to use more references where possible. comments: It's great! comments: i felt that it was very informative
Lisa Wood I happened upon your web page in looking at Plymouth as a possible stop during my travels this summer (with my six year-old daughter). I'm a psychology professor at a small liberal arts university near Seattle, Washington (USA). I'm very impressed with the student questionnaires on the web...great idea for survey research and for screening subjects for experiments. I also enjoyed my brief scan through your materials on aggression and gender. A few years ago I taught a course on aggression and have been considering a resurrection of the seminar. In any case, my family lived in Plymouth before the turn of the century and are listed at the old synagogue there. So I may head that way by rail. In any case, I've marked your web page and will return to it when I have more time. comments: The loading speed was a bit slow, it depended on how I accessed it. The material is amazing, organised well, and loads of interesting info. Cheers Alex Murphy comments: NOT enough INFO. 05comments: Excellant diagrams! comments: brilliant fantastic 05comments: As a college student doing research, I found this resource incredibly helpful. Thanks. comments: I am a level 3 student of psychology with the OU. I already have a PASS degree in psychology but want to improve my degree. This psychology site, you have, is really first rate. I just wish that many other University's inc. the OU had such an interesting and usefull site. Thank you Maurice Turner. comments: It is too big! split it up a bit comments: Damm good site. Wish I was on the course!! What about listing course literature on your website? Hey - what about being able to offer students abilitiy to BUY the books then and there?? Hey - want more information? Please see and help out a litte Plymouth student. Cheers. comments: Very informative as far as introduction to new information, would like more info about the topic. Great graphics. 05comments: very impressed comments: most informative site on rat courtship and reproduction found comments: excellent visual images 05comments: I came across your site on accident while studying for Psy.Phy.-VERY HELPFUL - Thank you!!!! comments: let us download your pictures
Reply from PK - feel free to download any pictures you find helpful.
Right click on your mouse to bring up a sub-menu with a 'Save Image as ... ' option comments: The out line that is important for the exam is not clear you have lots of different net works going of in all sorts of different dirrections . I also have a problem with byte space and cannot down load this information. Although my field of expertise is physiology of perception, I've been asked to teach a summer school course on sex and gender. I'm looking for well-written reference and textbooks on this subject, and I thought you might have some suggestions, since your web site/course seems to be particularly well thought out! Any ideas? I am also wondering if you could give me information on sources for interesting slides/videos. Such visuals always enliven the subject.
Reply from PK. Please send me your e-mail address so that I can reply to this query comments: Thank god I've finally found something relevant to my degree , informative and useful for my immunology exam revision on the net - got any more of the same on other topics ?
Reply from PK. Try comments: I like to know something about relationship between adrenal hyperplasia ( adrenogenital syndrome) and food, esp. animal proteins. Thank you.
Reply from PK. I am not aware of any research linking the genetic condition CAH/AGS to food. comments: good info!!! thx a lot for ur help comments: What the heck is nalorone and how is it used to study the effects of neurotransmitters?
Reply from PK. I think you may mean naloxone rather than nalorone. Naloxone binds to receptor sites occupied by morphine. Here is an an example of how it is used to study the effects of neurotransmitters.
Some Principles for Decoding Local Neuronal Systems in the Mammalian Central Nervous System by Stanislav Reinis Department of Psychology University of Waterloo comments: Good overall, but you should consider splitting the content over several pagees, rather than on one page. This page alone (neurotransmitters), gets turned into a 50MB print file when trying to print, which knocked my print server over!! Also, the page is _not_ 384kb, as the neurotransmission gif animation (pk1rendered2.gif) is nearly 3MB in size!! Reply from PK. This large animation has now been given its own page. comments: VERY ORGANISED, INFORMATIVE & USER FRIENDLY comments: very good comments: I was very pleased with the information. I am studying chemical dependency and we need to know how the brain functions and how drugs deplete neutrotransmitters and stop production. comments: Good idea to place the animated GIF on a separate page !! comments: What are career and educational opportunities for animal psychology? or can you direct me to find the answer? Thanks!
Reply from PK. I assume you are living in the US. If so, try the Amercican Psychological Society Employment Bulletin and the Graduate Student Resources for educational opportunities. In the UK try the British Psychological Society web site. They have a Careers in Psychology section comments: excellent organisation and detail/ clarity of information comments: Absolutley wonderfull!!!! Great Job. I've been a psychology major for 3 years and wish I would have found your site earlier! comments: This is a wonderful learning experience! Please, keep up the good work. D. Scranton comments: Very impressing- by the way- this should have been translated- I would like. comments: I am interested in learning more about physionomy in general. Please direct. comments: Found your site very interesting but was curious as to when you wrote this. We are currently studying five D receptors and the newer antipsychotics which affect all of thesse as well as histamine ans serotonergic receptors. Loading speed was fine and organisation of your page likewise. Reply from PK. Thanks for your comments. You are quite right to point out the multiplicity of receptor sites, and the availability of drugs which act as agonists and antagonists on them. I simplify the picture when I introduce this area to second year students, but some students elect to study the area in more depth in their final undergraduate year. comments: Check your pharmacology before disseminating information on the mechanism of action of Viagra. Erection occurs following dilation of the afferent blood vessels of the penis and the cGMP responsible for this is generated locally. It is almost certainly not due to a direct action of brain-derived cGMP Reply from PK. Thanks for pointing this out. The explanation for Viagra's action is given in quotes as it appears on the Virginia Urology Centre Viagra page. I will check out the issue you raise. Thanks again. comments: This is excellent. Probably the best, most thorough coverage of a subject on the internet. Loads a bit slowly for me, but not overly so. comments: Excellent! Links well to my research and thinking on developing individual and organisational learning strategies. The individual rules! Great page! Here's the new url for the F.A.S. article: comments: Excellent format and simplicity of presentation comments: excellent, i have a child with autism who has recently experienced psychotic episodes and is currently taking risperdal(sp?) and dexedrine alternating with adderal. Dexedrine is about the only thing that works consistently. Don't even like the rispirdal, but only thing that has helped with psychotic episodes. I would like to try lithium or depakote. Child is 6 1/2 yr old boy.
  Hi, there. I happened upon your article http:// on the web, because a newborn niece has CAH. I found it confusing that you have several pictures labeled CAH in the HTML text, and AGS in the graphic. I take it from this (and other reading) that they are the same syndrome? Perhaps a word or two about whether they are equivalent, and more consistent language would be a help. Thank you for sharing this helpful resource with others on the Web. Reply from PK. Sorry about this confusion, you are quite right, AGS and CAH refer to the same syndrome. I will make this point clearer on the page. comments: excellent job. must have taken a lot of time and energy. Not many people would bother COngratulations comments: Excellent material! What foods or nutrients stimulate ACTH in the human body? Reply from PK. As far as I know, ACTH levels are not sensitive to food intake, but I could be wrong. I'll check it out and add what I find here. wonderful!!! one of the really important matters on the web. congratulations GREAT JOB! excellent job!! I like it very much. Most the explanation with help of the Spice Girls. It's more easy to learn when you have something to laugh about!! Excuse my bad english, I'm from germany. Best wishes, Sabine Hackenberg, Wuppertal, Germany this was a totaly groovey web site. I wish I could take your class!!!! I have some psychology question. I would like for someone to help me answer about 25 qestion. If you can not help me, could you please tell me who can. Reply from PK. If you are a psychology student at Plymouth, e-mail me your questions. If you are not a Plymouth student then I am sorry but I am really busy at the moment- our teaching semester has just begun. Can your tutor not help you? I took a look at this site because of its title thinking some of our Psyc faculty might be interested. I was so impressed that I sent it to all of them as well as to a few behavioural biologists. I'm glad I took a look from top to bottom or I'd have missed your Internet sites and I liked the links to local places. I didn't actually click on anything but it appears very well laid out. I showed my friend the yellow background feature- 'not on the exam,' Loved the whole thing. Flora Grabowska - Science Librarian Vassar College i would like to say "well done" for producing such a great web site. i particularly enjoyed the animations which aided my understanding of the topic. thanks i have a question. why do people with this type of disorder (schiz)put there hands up to their mouths with their hand clinched in a fist? Reply from PK. As far as I know this behaviour is not seen in all schizophrenics. Some of the drugs used to treat schizophrenia can cause extrapyramidal side effects. These are described at effects of classic antipsychotics I have been researching information for my final year project and have come across your web site which is very interesting as it holds similarities to my project.....I am also interested in the site as I will be studying Biological Basis of Behaviour this semester and will be tuning in for further information. I must say though that the site looks very good. The grathics are great and very eye catching. It loks like you have done a good job! Very good brilliant no helpful essays
suppressed I have been in a class on The psychology and physiology of chemical dependency. This page was better organized, clear, and had great graphics - easy to understand. Keep up the good work. My instructor ought to be ashamed he didn't discover it. comments: loading - excellent structured organisation info.- high quality thank you - very useful Cristiano Pires Animal Behaviour Pedagogical University- Maputo Your site is not only good but also very informativ. It seems to be one of the best materials within animal behaviour pages. Thank you for this portunity. Dear Paul, I thought this was extremely useful. I was wondering if you would mind if I borrowed parts of it and/or included the link on our Neural Bases of Learning and Motivation course (which has one lecture on sex). I'll assume you don't mind unless I hear otherwise. When my lecture notes are complete, I'd be more than happy to send you the URL in return! Many thanks, Kate Jeffery Dept. of Anatomy University College London Reply from PK. Kate, You are very welcome to use anything you find useful Excellent layout, content, speed and structure, BUT printing out for later study using NAV 4.07 and others causes the images to move around, if printed at all, often covering text! Any tips to get around this would be appreciated. ps. i was printing the first section of behaviour resource Reply from PK. Sorry yopu had printing problems. One thing to try is pressing the Stop button on the top of the Navigator window before printing Really useful information and good links to otherinformative sites.Loading was quite slow but this is probably due to the large amount of information available. Brilliant information,especially as I havejustbegun a coursein Animal behaviour Only problem is it took quitea long time to load but it was worth the wait!! good Unbelievable. Thank you so much! very good, informative, but also fun! Thanks for the excellent little abstracts. There is an important gap to be filled between professional, academic research and that of the serious amateur, author or armchair philosopher - a broader, searchable base with its own search engine would be valuable. A "new developments" section would be wonderful. I leave here with optimised motor programs and will visit again... It has been found to be very enlightening. The presentation was clear and understandable . I will return to this site for further reference. Tried to use the link to essay writing provided on the page titled 'Essay writing What is it and how do I do it.' URL: However the link does not appear to be working. Reply from PK. I checked this link & it appears to be working This site is excellent! Well organized, easy to understand. I especially appreciate the page on sectioning of the brain, as that wasn't covered in our Psych 101. Thanks a lot! - Shannon You site is wonderful! It is a very student-friendly learning experience. Thanks for including my book (the second edition should be out soon). Cordially, Randy J. Nelson, Professor of Psychology & Neuroscience The Johns Hopkins University Baltimore, MD 21218-2686 USA
  Reading this made me decide to call my doctor and make an appointment. I am 17, I am female and Anxity runs in my family. I started to have attacts 6 months ago and they seem to be getting worse, now I know that I must get help fast! Thank you so much for explaining these attacts they way you did! Excellent! The web as it ought to be -not as 99.009% actually is. Like the light at the end of a very darkened and empty abyss of glitzy flashs, whistles,voids and time comsuming fun and frustration . Thank you. Excellent information - graphics were very helpful - thank you! Excellent. Lots of appropriate material and easily accessible. sweet! this was very informative and relavant to my coarse. well done dudes Really original! Glad I found it. Thank you. Great detail. I am a reviewer in Cellular and Gene Therapy at the FDA that must try to sift through the facts to review the safety of the neural implants. Very impressive. A little slow in loading, but worth the wait. John Bishop Beautiful. Just Beautiful I am a student of biochemistry, and i'm very impressed with your site.It is a very good way to introduce people with these subjects.Techical details are allso good. Keep it that way! enjoyed your site. Informative. Liked cool 3-D graphics. Would like to see type legibility consistant with graphing. But, I would have no idea how to create any 3-D graph! :) good very good I am currently a student who desperately needed information and i found your site to be exactly what I needed. Thank You, I would be interested in knowing what you thought of pre-menapause? Anger,depression,and the rest, do you believe in treating with herbs? please e-mail your thoughts back, thank you,Sue Reply from PK. Sorry, I can't respond via email; you did not leave your address. I have no knowledge about the herbal treatment of these conditions. Marvelous and Informative! My only suggestion is to check grammar and spelling. I came upon this site while researching a question from one of my students (How fast are neural transmissions? Faster than the speed of light?) and found your page to be excellent and humorous. Maybe you could point me in the right direction for an answer that can be understood in layman's terms. Thanks a wonderful resource. your discussion of the flaws in the executive monkey experiment were extremely helpful. I will be citing them in the footnotes to my upcoming book for John Wiley & Sons, _Global Brain: the evolution of mass mind from the Big Bang to the 21st century._ All thanks-- (P.S. for additional information of possible value, see my previous book, _The Lucifer Principle: a scientific expedition into the forces of history_, which covers the cultural, historical, psychological, and physiological consequences of stress at length.)

Howard Bloom (founder: International Paleopsychology Project; member: New York Academy of Sciences, American Association for the Advancement of Science, American Psychological Society, Academy of Political Science, Human Behavior and Evolution Society, European Sociobiological Society; board member: Epic of Evolution Society) Great site!!
I see your link to the MIT sheep brain page doesn't work, at least not today.
I'd like to recommend our sheep brain dissection guide--
It's based on an older DOS-based program--actually, the MIT site uses images from that version (slightly bigger and a bit higher resolution than what we opted for in the web-based version).
We're plugging away at a humand brain guide, but aren't there yet.
Once again--GREAT SITE!!! I'm adding it to my page of Likeable Links
Tim Cannon Hello, I'm a mature student studing part time, I'm pleased with the presentation but perhaps some more details please. Reply from PK.

This site is wonderfull, professional, scientific correct et cetera - I read the prints of your site every morning in bed.

[I am social scientist and work in a mental health office] Paul, I've found this site very useful for teaching purposes - the students like it as well. The only problem I've had is trying to connect to the server at the Uni. of Hanover, where the tutorials in basic neural processes are located. This site is also very useful - but difficult to use for teaching as access is very variable. Is there a reason for this? Do you know of any handy tips to get access? Or similar sites? Reply from PK. Did you have a problem accessing John Krantz' site at ? I have just loaded it successfully - maybe it was down when you tried?  
  excellent for the short submit. thank you it was very good and well organized. Keep up the good work. I am a translator of medical texts from English into German and came across your web site as the result of a search for Hoehn and Yahr Staging for a translation project. I was quite intrigued with the German machine translation at the beginning - it is gibberish and totally intellegible! What a shame for an otherwise very informative web site. But at least I do not have to worry about being replaced by a computer any time soon! If you need any real professional translations you can contact me under Sincerely, Susanne Correll for Interlanguage, Inc. Memphis, TN, USA Reply from PK. Thanks for this feedback. I don't speak German. We British are notorious for our poor grasp of foreign languages! The translation relies on AltaVista's SYSTRAN which claims to " translate words, phrases, and entire Web sites into a variety of different languages". I will remove the links to the German translations. As far as I know the French translation is acceptable. Thanks again. This is the first time I have visited this site and have found it to be very informative with lots of useful information. The speed of the information retrieval is excellent. I will definetly be visiting this site again. too much graphics, not enough informational text Very useful indeed. I wish I could afford more telephone time to read in detail Donald Bligh -Exeter great site -- very novel Good.. I REALLY ENJOYED THE EASY READING, IT MADE ME COMPREHEND THIS NEW TOPIC VERY WELL.THE DIAGRAMS WERE GREAT!I EVEN ADDED ONE OF THEM T0 MY FAVORITES.THANK YOU, AND PLEASE KEEP IT UP FOR THE EGER STUDENTS LIKE ME. It's a very well writen site, but it's probably for people older than me because I can't understand it very well. Brilliant! I actually understand this! Which for someone who failed 5th Form General Science is no mean achievement. Well done. Quick to load, well organised, clear. Thank you. One of the best resources I've found on-line for getting hold of basic information on anxiolytics. I recently became involved in development of a novel anxiolytic compound in clinical trials in US and found this presentation (along with the next programme in the series) quite useful. Regards - a friend from across the pond Great! Keep it up. Thanks. Very readable and informative without being too technical. More info on female is good and I appreciate it very much I am a psych teacher in junior college and appreciate all the information people like you spent time to disseminate for those of us who are novices. thank you very much I thought that this web site is absolutely splendid The loading speed was good, but it didn't load all of the pictures. There were a few pictures that were either half there, or not there at all. The detail and clarity was good also. I am a student at Concordia University in Montreal and I thank you for these precious notes that helped be for one of my papers...! Very well done. It was well put together, loaded quickly, and was well organized and understandable. I only being a high school freshmen even was a ble to get much out of it. Loading speed was fine. Content:- very interesting. I am a sufffer of Parkinsons Disease and an ex nurse. Clear, organised, with enough detail to understand whether one would need more depth regarding the topic I got to your site by accident - preparing a lecture on TD. I am a neurologist in Priv Practice, but was at UTSouthwestern for 10 yrs, neurotransmitter chemistry was my interest (graduate training with Adrian Dunn). I feel you have really done a fantastic job with this, mu congratulations. Ron Tintner, MD This website is great as I have found it difficult in the past to get info on animal psychology though I knew it existed. I feel the animals should be larger specimens as they would be more interesting and could be compared more easily with humans. very informative explain the hormone produced by the glands . Talk about other kinds of glands like sexual glands foe example testerone and ovary glands. Reply from PK. Check out I am very impressed with the website I only hope that I can take this course on the internet. If this is possible please email me soon. Thankx Reply from PK. Sorry, this course is not available as a distance learning module. I am wary of the graphs about the females with AGS. Most of the categories recorded were highly subjective, and a researcher could easily see only what he or she wanted, expected, or chose to see. I am a psychology student at the University of Cincinnati, and I am taking psychobiology which can be hard at times. Your website has given me simple hands on answers to some problems I have had in my class. Thank You Wow!!! So much information at once and I can still think... it was very well presented and I enjoyed every part of it, each paragraph unfolded a world that before seemed quite obscure but has now sparked my curiosity to continue to learn more about it. Thank you for putting the time and effort :) Margarita HG '00 -Hollins University- Roanoke, VA Excellent - Have been diagnosed with Hypertension by my Doctor and am doing a little private research. Thanks for the information. I need to learn all i can.Everything did great. Superb, your resource is concise and very readable. As a amateur on these topics,I found it easy to understand. Excellent in use of multi media. More web resources on the scientific method would have been useful. very informative comments: I thought that it was supposed to have information on the biological parts of aggression. Reply from PK. Here is some information that may help you It's great!!!!! comments: GREAT WORK!!!!! I JUST LOVED IT!!!!!!!!!! comments: very interesting , well set out and the use of colour definietly aiding understanding comments: Your presentation is very stimulating and useful. For my own purposes, that relate to learning experiences less connected to studying and much more to learning-by-doing, experiencing and working under a "master", I find your categorisation rather narrow. Perhaps distinctions such as "deep" and "shallow" learning apply also to learning that is less related to studying. Iwould very much appreciate any hints. Sincerely comments: Very good! Enjoyed the diagrams, as well as the tie-in to dog disorders! comments: Great, useful site! keep on going comments: Wow! This was great. My daughter turned me on to this site. I was trying to find info for a psych paper I have to write to complete my degree. I wish I had the opportunity to attend your classes but I am not sure if I could cope with the stress level! I have so much more to learn. Thanks. comments: i stumbled onto your websit in search of an answer. it is known that a neuron can release more than one type of neuron, but can the same stimulation release say both DA and EPI at the same time, or is the proccess either or. Reply from PK. I will check out if a neuron can release more than one type of neurotransmitter in response to a single input. excellent, clear, atticulate, presentable. Reply from PK. Thanks for this comment on This VRML project is my latest venture & I am curious to know how useful VRML models are to site visitors. comments: Sorry, but the German used in this tutorial is really terrible. Reply from PK. As you probably guessed, I am not able to speak or read German. The translation is made by machine. I will take down these pages until I get help with the translation. Any offers? comments: this is wonderful - sufficient detail without droning on, excellent graphics; my only quibble would be lack of references - eg the Bourne and Janis stuff. any chance of sending me the references, please? amazing! fast accurate informative clear and concise Excellent. Thank you for the information. I have vitiligo that is, I believe, somehow related to stress factors. I am doing research to hopefully learn something that will help suppress the vitiligo. comments: excellent comments: This is an interesting source. I love the Spice Girls. comments: it was great and informative what about human instict , does it exist? Reply from PK. Eibl-Eibesfeldt has identified and recorded on film, several human FAPs or human 'universals' e.g. smiling and the "eyebrow-flash". See comments: I think it is a good way to show people what they are dealing with, but my question is what is the possitive side of stress. Please this is an urgent message, can you give me an answer back. Thank you Reply from PK. I cannot think of any 'positive' effects associated with very stressful situations (i.e. high coping response rate and negative feedback) comments: Wow - Good stuff! comments: Dear Sir; My colleagues and I found your resource extremely informative and the time spent downloading, was time well spent. Keep up the good work. Sincerely, Edward Connor Reg. N., Hamilton Psychiatric Hospital, Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. Good introduction to pharmacology of schizophrenia. comments: Yes! This is an excellent site. The enthusiasm for teaching comes through lod and clear, without detracting in any way from the quality of the conttent, which is in my opinion right on the marl for undergrad. neuropsych and psych students. This is what the www is about in teaching - allowing access to excellent sites like this to increase the bredth and depth of educational exposure . Nice work. comments: i am looking for a diagram of a cell sructure and would like to know where i can find one. Reply from PK. Figure 2.4 on page 24 of Carlson's textbook "Physiology of Behavior", Allyn & Bacon, 6th edition 1998 may help you The site is very informative and resourceful to the educators like me. The loading speed is normal. Organisation is also good. Whenever you update this site please inform me. With regards, Dr.V.S.S.Kannan. comments: This is a very helpful aide to students of human sexuality. comments: WOW!! I'm sending this on to a friend. I'll download and read it more carefully later. The 3rd ed of my book Sex Differences in Cognitive Abilities wil be out in January or February. Erlbaum is the publisher ( if you are interested. Great job! Diane F. Halpern ( comments: Very Useful! Lucy Ford Brackenhurst College The site is excellent. The Stress and Behavior activity is terrific. comments: Very Good, less boring than just a text book. Only a bit less simple to learn from a screen. comments: I think this method of learning is excellent. There is not enough time in lectures to cover all the relevent materials and this way you have time to fully understand what you are reading. The layout is excellent and it is very useful to have handouts on the lecture outline and of the diagrams because it means that making notes off the web page i much clearer. The clarity is also really good and the points to ponder make you think about what you have just read. It is also an enjoyable way to learn - what more can a girl ask for!!!. comments: Very good. Though I think it would be better if you could print an overview of all the pages for evision purposes. it is very hard to print off all the information... it would be better if it was already printed off for us. Reply from PK. Print outs available in The Psychology Information Room located in Room 226 in the Link Block. cannot access IDEAL. " Server does not have DNS entry" ?? Reply from PK. Worked fine today 7th Oct.'99 at 13:45. The URL is comments: Which Lecture Support Pages Do We Need To Look At, 2.DA Receptors And Schizophrenia Was Not Covered In Your Face-To-Face Lecture? Reply from PK. Make sure you look at the material for the course you are taking. This years second year course is under the heading 'PSY221 Physiological Psychology and Perception: Year 2 lecture support material ' Hi Paul Thanks for all the info. However when I print out the pages there are often page breaks in the middle of a drawing or graph etc which obviously makes them difficult to study. Could this be resolved? Reply from PK. Money & time saving tip : Try to avoid printing these pages. Some pages are very large and contain animated images. Copies of this web site are available in the Information Room Collection. If you are lucky enough to own your own computer, you may find "Browsing Lecture Support Material on your home computer" useful . And secondly I tried to down load the Neuroendocrinology article and despite loading Adobe it would not present the document as I was a guest to Ideal and not an authorised user as I did not have the necessary name and password. Is this right or am I doing something wrong? Reply from PK. I think the problem is to do with IDEAL not allowing the computer you were using unrestricted access. Your computer's IP address was the canonical name is Normally Plymouth computers start with the numbers 141.163. etc. IDEAL uses the 141.163 part to authenticate users and this may have failed. It is possible that you were using a 141.163. machine, but that it was set up to use a cache at and this caused the problem. I would expect IDEAL to allow unrestricted access from academic sites. I suspect that IDEAL has denied access to because it is a commercial machine. Are you using FreeServe as your ISP? One solution might be to try using a machine in the psychology department. If there are still problems, get back to me & I will investigate the cache settings on our machines. Regards Gill Nelson comments: Terrible. I haven't got the time to fight with electronic media: it's sometimes fast, sometimes slow, sometimes not working at all and includes pages by individuals and companies that all have there own idea of how connections should be displayed (or hidden)and accessed. Surely no-one can argue that this method of accessing lecture support material is better than obtaining hard copies from the information room!For one thing hard copies are easier to read and so on. Please continue to put any relevant material in the info room or give details re accessing them in the library. It's an important year and this is just an inconvenience - especially trying to access 'ideal' only to be dissapointed after god knows how many wasdted minutes. Sorry for the abrupt tone but i'm know in a bad mood! I'm not a ludite, I'm just trying to work efficiently. Reply from PK. Sorry to hear that you experienced problems accessing the IDEAL site. But often if you persevere with something difficult, you can gain valuable insights into how things work. Sometimes, things presented on a plate don't make much of a lasting impression. Your webpages are very good indeed - very interesting. Could you please reccommend to me a book or paper which would help me understand the changes that occur in menstruation, in a scientific way? Reply from PK. This is covered in many books- rather than suggesting a specific book that you may not be able to obtain - I suggest you look at books on physiology or endocrinology, look up menstruation/reproduction in the index. If you don't find what you need e-mail me again.
  Dear Dr. Kenyon: I simply wanted to convey my gratitude for the effort you have invested in this training site. It has become invaluable to me and my students. I am collaborating with some folks in Kenya and am very excited about applying what I'm learning to data collection there (and here too). Of course, it seems like a candystore to me--the possibilities these web-based approaches seem to be opening up. Once again, mega thanks! Best Regards, Francis Abueg Francis R. Abueg, Ph.D. Clinical Psychologist comments: The loading speed for the animated version of the neurotransmitter took forever and I still don't understand how it works. More examples of the neurotransmitter could help me more. Reply from PK. Yes, the neurotransmitter animation is a large file. Try for more information about neurotransmitters. I enjoyed browsing around the site. It is very impressive in many regards. It is very quick and quite user friendly. On a trivial matter, I believe there is a fault with question 20 on the first sample of multiple choice items. All of my sources indicated serotonin is a monoamine as well as norep., ep., and dopamine. I believe Ach is classified as a quartenary amine. Thanks, david yells. Reply from PK. You are quite right!. Thanks for pointing this out. I have modified the offending page. comments: very good thank you

The best thing is that I can use it from home. This means that my library time is less for this topic and can be allocated elsewhere. I also think using it in the lectures is a good idea. I find it familiarises the layout and the funtions so that when I come to look at the site I save time by doing exactely what I want to do without having to work out how to do it first. I personally think this is a very useful resource, easy to use and read and usually quick to load on. It appears not to be available sometimes, but I can just come back another time. I am not sure how people who do not have access to the internet at home get on with using it - they may find it difficult to get the info or expensive if they have to photocopy it all. comments: French translation is a disaster... Reply from PK. Sorry about that. It is a machine translation. I had thought about removing it, but some people may find it useful for deciding whether or not to read the english version. comments: Fabulous!! Would you mind if I included the URL for your site in my future lectures? I especially liked your novel treatment of the directional terms and animated Loewi's experiment. On the down side, the animated synapse was downloading at 2.4K/s and would have taken ages (or what seems like ages to get through). Reply from PK. Delighted you found this resource useful. Of course you can include the URL in your teaching materials. Sorry about the wait to see the animated synapse gif file.

Ann Schreiber Technical Writer, Philadelphia comments: This is so cool I am speachless (I can say no more) comments: Brilliant website. However, i would be interested to know if you have ever worked with or cared for people with mental disorders. Too much emphasis is placed on biological research, when often professionals fail to recognise the syptoms of someone suffering from depression, anxiety etc. Reply from PK. You are quite right, the focus of this site is on basic biological research. It is not the place to seek guidance on recognising symptoms of psychiatric disorders. The site's Home Page carries this message:" Warning ! The information provided on this web site is to be used for educational purposes only. It should NOT be used as a substitute for seeking professional care for the diagnosis and treatment of any medical/psychiatric disorder. The diagnosis and treatment of depression and other psychiatric disorders requires trained medical professionals. " comments: Excellent,very useful
March 04, 2000 Excellent. I've stumbled on lecturs of yours before and was impressed then too. I've added a link to your page for my 3rd year students. Cheers, Kate Jeffery Dept. of Psychology University College London
March 06, 2000 This site is amazing. It loaded quickly and is organised clearly so can identify what you want.
March 06, 2000 Why are these lecture handouts to be found under the 3rd year section on the previous page, yet they are titled 2nd year? And which year are they for? Reply from PK. The syllabus has been changed recently. The contents of current modules are set out on
March 06, 2000 How can we make the diagrams (and some of the text) fit on to our print outs? Reply from PK. Unfortunately some large diagrams will not print out onto paper. The web pages are best viewed on a computer.
March 06, 2000 I think it's absolutely disgusting that we are expected to fork out for compulsory handouts that would be given out in any other lecture!!!!!!!!! Reply from PK. This web-based learning-support resource is provided for free. Only one handout is distributed at the start of each module. It is available in the Information Room if you missed the lecture.
March 07, 2000 Very thorough over view of ethologists and the study of animal behaviour, a helpful intoduction to this topic
March 08, 2000 Great!
March 09, 2000 Very good. Wouldn´t you like to talk about INAH-2 and INAH-3 of Hofman, Swaab and Le Vay? What abot Xq28? Could it be possible that most of human homosexual are visual homosexual but not nasal ones. The first because of Xq28 determination (the most important in humans) and the second for Y androgenic (phereromonic too)concentration? If you want to talk abot it, please answer me
March 09, 2000 This was an interesting learning resource. I have not been that familiar with using the internet before so this proved to be a valuable experience for me. It loaded quickly and instructions and links were clear.
March 11, 2000 This is utterly mind-boggling, overwhelming, and enthralling. Herman P. Sandford, Ph.D.
March 14, 2000 This is an excellent resource. It was organized clearly and provided the right amount of detail.
March 15, 2000 I have been trying to access the connections on the supplementary material (articles in blue text) and having difficulty. I have tried many times on the university computers and each time the response is not found. Do you think that you could check this out to see if you have the same problem. Reply from PK. Sometimes information on other web sites cannot be found because the site is down, or has been moved. One solution is to use a Search Engine (e.g. ) to look for alternative sources for the information you require
March 16, 2000 I'm sorry that you seem to have so profoundly misunderstood my gripe at having to print out lecture material. I was not referring, as you thought, to the syllabus that you handed out in the first lecture. I was in fact referring to the lecture support material (suprise, suprise) for ALL your 337 lectures (the syllabus is pointless without them - I'm sure you'll agree). I have registered your comments concerning the technicians' refusal to allow free printing of this vital material, but I cannot help but feel that you should have considered this before the module began. Furthermore, I realise that there are copies of the lecture support material in the information room and if I were 'computerphobic' as you hinted in the lecture my complaint would still stand as it is equally expensive to photocopy the material. I hope you don't feel that my point is irrelevant now that you have delivered the last 337 lecture this year, and that you will bear it in mind for next years' third years. It is not only our money you have wasted, but also our time. Reply from PK. Most web-based lecture-support material is best viewed on a computer. The university has invested a considerable amount of money to provide computers to support teaching and learning. Using the web to deliver learning resources enables me to deliver more information to students than is possible using conventional paper-based handouts. In addition, colour and animation can be used to facilitate explanation on web pages. Paper copies of web pages will be placed in the Information Room to cater for those students who - for whatever reason - prefer hardcopy.
March 16, 2000 very well thought out and clearly presented. Extremely useful.
March 19, 2000 Are those the Spice Girls?? Do they belong here? What is this learning aimed towards--Boys??
March 20, 2000 Excellent speed and clarity
March 21, 2000 Great philosophy apart from missing out the bit about the danger of people putting their head on one side and the information slipping out there ear
March 23, 2000 too much waffle to understand clearly. A lot of work to print off and not all info prints off. Takes ages to load up on Netscape and ages to down load from it.
March 24, 2000 Very interesting - just what I was looking for.
March 24, 2000 I really enjoyed it...and it made this very understandable. Well done, Gaea Atkinson
March 27, 2000 Very enlightening.It certainly is more common than people think and there needs to be more awareness associated with the subject!In my experience, families all too easily believe you just need to get your act together.Vikki.
March 27, 2000 great!
March 29, 2000 Very recent zoological neuro biological findings might be applied to human sexual inclination.
March 29, 2000 informative.
March 29, 2000 boring
March 31, 2000 excellent there should be more detailed studies on human behaviour.
April 01, 2000 Excellent images
April 01, 2000 Excellent!!!!
April 01, 2000 I think this is very cool. Loading speed is fine and organization is good. Detail and clarity of information is very informative. Please keep it free to access for the public. I really like the pictures and animations. You are a true webmaster. I will be back.
April 02, 2000 The animation is a good use of this medium to drive home concepts. Ignorant of the concepts, I studied the material carefully to gain an understanding. I found the material clear and its presentation effective. Loading speed is a problem over a clogged internet and a 56K connection -- so much of a problem that working on-line is not effective. The material needs to be downloaded first in a passive manner then used interactively. Reply from PK. I am currently investigating 'video-streaming' to overcome this problem
April 03, 2000 loading speed,detail etc excellent
April 03, 2000 Your tutorials are excellent. Now in my final year, I have used been dipping in to your pages for the past three years. Thank you very much Reply from PK. Greetings to all at QUB. It seems a very long time since I studied psychology there ...
April 04, 2000 the background picture makes it hard to read
April 09, 2000 I am a final year student from the university of ulster. Last semester I took a module in psychopharmacology, it was very interesting and covered most of the material on these web pages. I have found these pages very useful-I wish I had known about them before now as they would have helped me a great deal with my last module. I am having problems with the links on these pages. I really need to access the information on the new antipsychotic drugs (link named - "New developments in antipsychotic drug treatment") for a project that I am doing at present, but the computer cannot find the pages linked. I know nothing about computers so I don't know what is wrong. However, I must thank you for these pages as they have been of great use to me.LYNN STRAND UNIVERSITY OF ULSTER Reply from PK.

April 15, 2000 I found your site while searching for information on "female" libido. It would appear that most of the research is still favoring male. I would truly like to know why just about "all" research favors studying and treating male sexual dysfunction. Surely there is more to a mans sexual drive than lack of erection. The fact that you mention lordosis first says it all.....
April 18, 2000 it is very concise and worth the time to study and lacks pondering because of it's clarity
April 22, 2000 The page is way too long -- each lecture should be on a separate page.
April 27, 2000 I am very interested in maternal behaviour and mother-pups interaction. Your site is great, but I haven't an opportunity to print this pleasant pictures about medial preoptic area and ventral tegmental area and their involvement in parental behaviour. It would be very important for my work to receive this data. If You have a possibility to tell me the journal, where this pictures had appeared, I would be very glad.

April 29, 2000 Excellent resource, very detailed in the right things, nice links with real data and references. Really useful.
April 29, 2000 Thank you for sharing your knowledge and expertise with me. I am amazed with this your overview of Parkinson's and your clear depiction through technological innovation.I will share this site with the faculty and students at my university. Thank you, Eula
May 03, 2000 great! thank you! i'm currently writing up a lab, and this site clarified a few simple terms for me.
May 03, 2000 Truly the best source I've seen for a clear explaination of this disease. Good Work.
May 11, 2000 thank you for a clear consise site, great for revising , have exam next week, lecturers think this is a great site too.
May 12, 2000 I thought that this approach to understanding the subject in hand was innovative and effective
May 15, 2000 very useful - I shall recommend it Fred Toates
May 19, 2000 i am not even one of your students; i'm studying undergraduate psychology elsewhere, but i've used your notes extensively, and think they are excellent.
May 20, 2000 I believe that this website, which I came across using a search engine is extremely helpful. I am a 2nd year Psychology student in UWIC, and I am in the middle of revising for a cognitive science exam. I wish that my college had a learning aid such as this one. The loading speed was relatively quick, and the categorisation of the site is extremely well designed. Although perhaps more detail and helpful links could have been added
May 22, 2000 I've got an idea for the site for students only. Becuase of the paper problem i recommend that what you do is for the students who desire create a zip file with all the images on (and of course the htm) and give them the oppotunity to copy the zip file so they can read it at home and print it out. One other major problem are the frame sizes. You should go into the code and put 100% instead of the table width so that it will automatically size up.Thanks Brian Holt Stage 3
Reply from PK You can save pages and the associated images for yourself onto a floppy disk by using the File, Save As... function in a web browser. Then you can zip files files to save space.
Wednesday, May 24, 2000 All of your links happen to be dead when i tried them
May 24, 2000 Excellent introduction to EP, but it lacks to answer the most frequently posed problem by newcomers: the altruism toward nonkin people. For example, the Group Socialization Theory (J.R. Harris, 1995) is the most predictive model in this sense. Groupness is the most simple and understandable instinct for students, in my experience. Sport fanatism and (apparently) unselfish cooperation toward higher status members of the same workgroup are oflten well understood examples. Axelrod's Tit4Tat instinct is another motivation to show altruistic behaviour. Reply from PK. Thanks, I will bear your comments in mind when I revise these pages
May 25, 2000 I like the look of the site very much and I can see the value of your strategy but one thing intrigues me. What do you use lecture periods for, now that students are freed from 'the tyranny of the lecture theatre'? This is a genuine question. I am engaged in web-based delivery myself having entered the UCISA awards in the same year as your site. In reflecting on the practice of using web-based delivery in a pedagogically informed way is I think very important. Best wishes
May 26, 2000 Very good resource, however very few of the links mentioned in the 'supplimentary material' are actually accessable when you click on them.
May 28, 2000 Absolutely wonderful! Very organized although a slight problem in regards to the green and brown interactive axes.
June 01, 2000 Absolutely FANASTIC!!
June 01, 2000 Wonderful!
June 03, 2000 I think, this animation is good to make a better understanding about neurotransmition. Especially for the student, who learning about neurotransmitter. Is there any other subject which was you made with animation?
June 06, 2000 excellent pages and very useful
June 07, 2000 What do I think of this learning resource? Just one word: Astounding! Dr. Carmine Pascuzzo Lima
June 08, 2000 I'm a third year student and I have a number of major complaints, which I shall be taking to the department.
  1. Not everyone has access to the web, especially not adequate to actuall study this course
  2. You left it to us to print them off - which you are forced to do - which costs £1+ per lecture, there is nowhere to do them free
  3. the layout is incredibly uneconomical and extremely hard to follow
  4. Some of the handout is lost when printing as you haven't even done it on an A4 format, so bits go missing down the side
  5. The website is incredibly unreliable, half the time you can't even access it

I'm am severly unhappy and annoyed with the course and the hand out, It seems incredibly thoughtless.
Reply from PK

  1. The department and the university has invested a considerable amount of money into open-access computer labs
  2. As you know, I have asked the department several times to provide free printing facilities to support this course
  3. The pages were designed for online rather than offline viewing
  4. as above
  5. Access to servers within the university was a problem for a few days this semester. The problem is recognised and steps were taken to rectify it and restore a reliable service

A great deal of thought and effort goes into the preparation of material to support the modules I teach.

June 13, 2000 This website was very informative but perhaps a little vague, I personally would be very grateful if there was a specific section on: How can the evolution of non-human-animal behaviour help us to understand human-animal behaviour. thank-you for taking this into consideration, or if you don't I hope you understand that alot of a'level psychology students will be very distressed and disappointed!!!! Reply from PK You may be interested in my pages which discuss Evolutionary Psychology
June 26, 2000 This has been a great experience. It was very easy to read, and I am going back now to look at some of the topics in more detail.
June 26, 2000 Remote Address: I have a 5.5 yr old 47,xxy son. I have spent 6 years researching his anomaly, and your site has answered many questions I had no answers for. I have been told repeatedly that 47,xxy's manufacture natural testosterone in utero and get the normal testosterone surges in infancy and early childhood. I've wondered if this is true, and your theory made me look at the possiblity that xxy's should have hrt within a few days after birth. Thank you so much for an enlightening and easy to navigate educational experience. If you have any other information you could share with me, I would appreciate it.
July 10, 2000 I am a Psychiatric Nurse currently studying to be a Psychosocial Nurse Practitioner. I am always on the internet looking for info for school. I love the animation on your web site, it really caught my eye. Due to time constraints, I am unable to read the text, but would If I could.
July 13, 2000 Very cool. Loaded fine, like the large graphics, good details, nice additional info. I am looking for an image of reorganization in the rat cortical ballel fields when a row of vibrissa is electolyzed. Do you know where I could find such an image? Jane Pickett, Ph.D. Coordinator, Autism Tissue Program, Brain research projects, Thank you. Reply from PK You may find this useful: RF Thompson, The Brain 3rd Edition, Worth, 2000, page 341
July 16, 2000 the FAQs were not "loadable" -the German passages are a good introduction, but very badly translated, thus very funny to read - would you like me to translate them for you? I am a native speaker of German Reply from PK Thanks for the offer. The pages were submitted to an online translation service. The pages change so frequently that I think I will just abandon foreign language versions. End of reply from PK -the rest is fine and interesting -the arrangement is pleasant and pedagogically well made -what about people who always feel a bit sad and bored? Is there something against disillusion, disgust, disappointment and desire of revenge for disagreeable experiences? And against the incapacity to get what one wants, each time you know at last w h a t you want? And how to free oneself from this "if only I had done this and not that"? I don't think there are pills against/for those things...
July 20, 2000 What a fun. Loads of visual interest. Why can't all lectures take this form? The halls would be full of eager students. Congratulations and well done. Sarah from Griffith University Mt Gravatt Campus Brisbane Australia
July 20, 2000 I'm interested in knowing what the units of measurment are for each hormone on your graph. Are they in ng/ml, ug/ml or mIU/ml?

July 25, 2000 I have really enjoyed using this web page and have got invaluable info of it. Excellent work keep it up THANKU SOOOO MUCH!
July 30, 2000 To make this site more accessible it would be a great help if it were possible to conduct a site search, for say, a keyword or topic. I know this may be difficult but I am sure that there are resources within this site that would be useful to many people but they have difficulty finding them, I myself being one of them. I am an A-Level student and although this site is meant for university students I am certain that some of the material contained within it would be suitable for us too. Yours Sincerely, Francesca Doran
August 05, 2000 Hey's amazing. I'm outta breath. I've been browsing the web to get some web resources on Psychology and bumped into this sight. It's simply breathtaking. You are a giant of a man. Bravo....I solute your efforts.
August 15, 2000 Excellnet source. Just, the page is quite long. It is better to be divided it to more than three or four pages (using frames for example). The yellow colour, as a background, does not make me feel comfortable.
August 15, 2000 I am very pleased with this information and being a sufferer I find it helpfull
August 16, 2000 The two graphics near the bottom were too 'wide', you have to scroll to the right to see the whole graphic. (This is using Internet Explorer 5.1 as my browser.) Suggest scaling the pictures down, or adding links that viewers can click on to see the graphic. Otherwise, loading time was fine, info is good.
August 16, 2000 Dear sir I wonder if you can help me with a problem i have experienced now for some 25 years, in 1975 i was given "TRANXENE" after a death in the family, i took the capsule and felt ok then the next day i felt bad again, so i took tranxene, this went on for years, i would feel jittery and my legs would feel like they were jelly, so i would take tranxene, i would feel better in about 15 mins, this as i said went on for 17 years, i decided to stop taking them, well thats when my trouble really began, over a period of approx 6 months i would undo the capsule and remove a bit at a time untill i was taking 25% of the capsule, how this made me really ill, i endured horrible withdrawal symptoms which went on for months, i stopped taking tranxene in 1990 ten years ago and still i do not fell well and feel sure that these drugs have done some damage, i have a constant headache with a tight band around my head( which has been there since 1976 and never ever goes away), a loud riging in my head and ears, i feel like burning in various parts of my legs and arms, i have also got a contant pain in my neck which goes up into my head and makes me feel really ill some days, most of the time i am just not right and feel like i am stuck in a trap and cannot escape, doctors just cannot find out whats wrong with me, i have endured head and neck mri scans, i have tried many different doctors, nuerosurgeons etc, with no results to find out the problem, this now is getting worse as i get older, i was 25 years old when i started taking "TRANXENE" now i am nearly 50 and feel bad that a drug like this has made me lose the good times which i should of hade, but i never ever felt better after i took tranxene, oh i wish i could feel better, but i am stuck with this i feel now for the rest of my life, i am now disabled and have to keep explaining to my doctor how i feel but he calls me the mistery man, tranxene i feel has done this to me and wanted to know does it matter how long you were on these drugs, secondly why do you think i am still suffering, i was nver like this before i took tranxene and feel that they have damaged my brain or some thing, can you tell me if i will get free of these withdrawal symptoms which i have to endure every day of my life, a tranquilizer help group told me it may take the same amout of time to get over the symptoms than you was on the drug, 17 years i was addicted to them, them i mean tranxene, i was also put on ativan, valium, librium, in between, the dosage i was on was to start with 15mg a night, then as time went by i was taking 15mg twice a day, finally i was taking 6x7.5mg a day, also i was tranfered onto ativan 2.5mg yellow tablets, i was at one pont taking 6 a day, so you see i dont feel right, and am very suprised that i do still feel bad, the neck and head problem are the major distressing factors that make me sad and depressed every day of my life.can you tell me if you think i might be still be affected by the length of time i was on them and do you think i will ever be better again, oh how i long for that day, but will it come, somehow i dont think so. i do hope you can help me with anything at all which might help me, many thanks for taking the time to read this letter, i hope you will reply, thank you End of reply from PK I am very sorry to hear about the symptoms you are experiencing. Unfortunately I am not qualified as a medical doctor and therefore I am not able to comment on the causes of your distressing condition. I hope you are able to obtain help from a medical doctor. Best wishes.
August 17, 2000 The information is very clear and brought in a simple form. Although I am not a medical student, but someone with schifzofrenia. It gave some useful information.
August 17, 2000 I found your treatment of this material very good. I did, however, notice an apparent error. In your model of the dopaminergic nerve terminal, you depict imipramine as an inhibitor of dopamine reuptake. The tricyclics are very weak inhibitors of the dopamine transporter. Cocaine would be a better example.
August 21, 2000 This is a very good article provides me with an understanding of this.
August 24, 2000 This is an excellent web page! I would only ask that, in addition, I might be albe to print, say, the first page or two without having to print the entire document. End of reply from PK The File... Print.. menu in Internet Explorer allows you to specify the pages you want printed
August 30, 2000 thank you sooo much. this is exactly what i need to reinerate the info learned in class.
September 08, 2000 The website is very handy. I want to do some psychology courses, but I want to do them from home. I have a PC and would like to study courses that could go towards a BSc Hons qualification. Any ideas? End of reply from PK I am sorry but we do not offer this course online.

September 13, 2000 I am a full time faculty member in philosophy at Orange Coast College in Costa Mesa, CA (south of Long Beach). Currently, I am developing my own online course for teaching Introduction to Philosophy. Your website is really excellent. It takes advantage of the diverse ways in which material can be presented on the computer, including multimedia and hypertext links. The sections are not too long to readn and are beautifully organized and structured. I like the different colored backgrounds to indicate different content environments and will try something like this one my own site. You are to be congratulated and thanks for all of your good work.

November 29, 2000 Dr Kenyon, I'm a third year psychology undergraduate currently researching for my dissertation. I have stumbled across your website and found the page on 'coping with stress' very interesting. My research is on how personality traits relate to a persons willingness to seek help in times of stress! I was wondering, if you had a spare moment, whether you would be able to let me know if you had or knew of any information which would be useful to me. I am not one of your students, but you will appreciate the time that we are all going through at the moment. It would be greatly appreciated if you would help me. I am searching for previous research in this area, recognised and validated ways to measure stress and help seeking behaviour etc. I realise that I am asking a lot from you (or any of your colleagues). Thank you for any time and help that you could give me. Julie Kirk University of Greenwich e-mail :

January 05, 2001 Could you please tell me if any experimentation has followed female rodents after parturation having not eaten the placenta and the cell membranes which are left behind.

January 19, 2001 Was a little confused as it said to use the control to view but I thought I already had. The animation itself is cool but a simple key below would be good + is it possible to shift the text so it's not all on the right. Very useful though - wish my lecturer did notes like this!!!

February 22, 2001 thank you for all the knowledge you share for us... it has been very educational to know the effects and the explanations you have enriches us more about drugs and why people still love taking it despite the effects that it causes.
February 22, 2001 It would be nice to have a search window to locate the topic. The site is quite nice and has lots of new information. Thank you.
February 23, 2001 I found this page to be a great supplement/refresher about tolerance. The article was laid out well and was very easy to understand.
February 24, 2001 very good, greatly helped me with my project-thanks
February 25, 2001 Very nice! Slow loading but otherwise first rate. Thank you.
February 26, 2001 With all due respect, as usual the moving animals are distracting; there is a moving face over the details of an x axis on a diagram; the wording and diagrams frequently excede paper width which makes printing an anoying experience; colours are not distinguishable when printed. Reply from PK You can turn off animations by hitting the Stop button in your browser. The web pages are designed to be viewed in a web browser and therefore may not print very well. Colours tend to print poorly on a black and white printer.
February 27, 2001 This was great to find! I was reading related material for a class and this helped to explain something the book went over to quickly. So, thanks!
February 27, 2001 Dr Kenyon. I am a Second Year student at Sheffield Hallam University. My lecturer, Sue McHale recommended your site. It is very helpful. It is a nice, clearly illustrated sire that explains the points clearly. I have a presentation tomorrow which has been greatly aided by the site (dont worry I have done research on the yopic previously !) Reply from PK Give my best wishes to Sue
March 01, 2001 I am using this medication currently with a doctor, a nurse and a psychologist. I would love to learn more about this medication simply because I am taking it. I have been diagnosed with Bi-polar/w psychotic features as of Jan 2001. In the beginning of my use of rispirdal I was frightened, however with continued support I am willing to continue taking it. I have gone through enough heartache,pain,confusion and loneliness that only I could begin to explain. My compliments to your study. So far on me it has been a confusing roller-coaster type effect in which I understand the effects of this medication. I do get side effects however I believe in this med. and agree with my back up support group of nurses,doctors, and my psychologist. It could quite possibly be saving what is left in my brain. Thank You Dr Paul Kenyon from a patient to a doctor whom I have never met.

April 22, 2001 Greetings, I am a student currently in my fourth year of my pre-med Honours degree at Queen's University in Canada. One of the courses I am taking had a special lecture on Schizophrenia and I found the notes inconcise and confusing.

April 26, 2001 A very interesting, cleraly written and accurate introduction to evolutionary psychology. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. I did feel you were (perhaps unconsciously) trying to "sell" Nicky Hayes book! Perhaps she is a friend or potential mating partner? Makes sense from an evolutionary perpective.
April 30, 2001 Could you please, please do something about these notes not fitting on A4. When available in the information room, some parts are almost completely unreadable as the words are scrambled to fit onto the page.
April 30, 2001 It is very nice because it is easy to understand.
May 01, 2001 excellent
May 01, 2001 I have struggled to understand several textbook accounts of the biological theories of schizoprenia, but found this explanation to be clear and very well illustrated.

Thank you!

July 03, 2001 i liked it hp weingold phd
July 04, 2001 I think the schizophrenic has more dopamine receptors than normal or they are more sensitive to dopamine than normal OR there is an excitatory response to the dopamine that produces an allergy-like reaction that amplifies the response to the dopamine. Question is: Why not increase availability of MAO to bring dopamine down?
July 04, 2001 Does the body produce its own phenylalanine and/or tyrosine leading to an ever increasing spiral of dopamine which is more than the available MAO can handle? Or is it too much HVA residue pushing buttions elsewhere to produce or react and release endogenous tyrosine/Phenylalanine?
July 04, 2001 Thank you for this site. It has proven to be helpful in my study of biological psychology.
July 05, 2001 very good

A few links are broken:

December 04, 2001 I'm really enjoying your site. The only problem is that sometimes the text has been covered up by a poorly placed image.
December 09, 2001 beautifully laid out, clear to look at and understand. Made the animal experiments rather less boring than usual.
December 11, 2001 have you got any reference to psychologists that have done experinments on boifeedback relating to stress-management?
December 11, 2001 I found this site very interesting thankyou!
December 12, 2001 Thank you, clear overview. would like more.
December 12, 2001 very interesting,i am doing a psychology course, this gave me great help in understanding thee general things. thankyou
December 13, 2001 brilliant
December 16, 2001 I enjoyed your information very much. I found it very imformative. Tell me how would one lower ones cortisol level to help increase memory? Are there herbs or amino acids to so this?
December 19, 2001 just terrific - thank you
December 21, 2001 this site is brillient! its a good place to start understanding the basics of depression, it is interesting with extra information, and has clear diagrams.
December 23, 2001 It is great!
December 24, 2001 Excellent!
December 29, 2001 Informative and attractive. Keep up the good work. If possible add a section on effects of stress on motor performance from a cognitive function perspective. Thank you.
December 30, 2001 Very well organized. I loved all the more recent experiment data to back up the information and the "points to ponder"... good for use in the classroom!
December 30, 2001   The scientific information on this site is very valid and i had trouble finding it else-where on the internet. I have several theories on depression which i would like to share with people who have an interest or research potential. I am a depressive myself and have been reading on it for over 10 years.
January 01, 2002 This site is absolutely fantastic. I will recommend it glowingly to all my friends interested in EP. Thanks for putting in the work--the results shine. Best and Happy New Year Joseph Stern New York, USA
January 01, 2002 I find the thought provoking pictures at the beginning of each lecture useful as they enable me to visualise the topic and therefore aid my memory.
January 02, 2002 good
January 04, 2002 It was very very clear to me to find out info. about animal behaviour. it was including almost all the aspects of learning. Thanks a lot.
January 09, 2002 GREAT THANKS. SHAKHNOZA GANIEVA (student of Touro College)
January 09, 2002 I am a 1st year psychology student at university of waterloo. I am trying to find out how many neurotransmitters are used in any one neural transmission. I can't seem to find this info anywhere. Can you help.
January 09, 2002 It was great it helped me on my science fair project report. Thanks!!!!!
January 09, 2002 I thought this web-site was fantastoc, clearly explained and detailed. Thankyou
January 10, 2002 absolutely wonderful was a great help with my chemistry ISU
January 12, 2002 Having used your audio commentary, as a very useful form of revision, I was slightly dissapointed to see that evolutionary psychology does not provide the same service. I think that your audio ceommentary service is a very good service, like the rest of your website. It helps having you explain what is going on, on the page while I am reading it. This is because although I sit at the front of your lectures, it is sometimes tricky to follow what exactly is going on. All in all i think you provide an exemplary service for students of all ranges and only wish other lecturers took as much time to help their students as you do.
January 13, 2002 Excellent!
January 13, 2002 very interesting
January 14, 2002 well presented, thanks
January 15, 2002 very good,easy accses, very interesting
January 18, 2002 Fantastic - fascinating, interesting, clear information, loaded quickly. I wish there were more like this.
January 24, 2002 there was good clarity of info
January 26, 2002 -Interesting movie! that was great -what was that purple ring in the movie? Was that part of the medication or particles of neurotransmitters? -In the middle of the movie, there are golden balls heading towards the other end of the postsynaptic membrane, breaking into blue pieces after being blocked by the red ones. Are they also neurotransmmitters? -Do the medication not simply block the neurotransmitters but even destroy them? I used to think they just block the neurotransmitters so that they keep adrifting between the synaptic gaps without being able to attach anywhere until they naturally desolve or something! What happens after the red ones binds to the receptors? Do they eventually leave that membranes or do they permanently change the chemical of the neurotransmitter itself such that the affected neurons no longer work as neurons? While the medication block the neurons, doesn`t the neuron change its nature because it no longer receives the stimulation they should by the neurotransmitters?
January 29, 2002 nice information. appreciated much by us high school students.
January 30, 2002 Thanx - really helpful!
January 31, 2002 I've returned to your evolutionary psychology web page many times. It's really overflowing with excellent data and spot-on summaries of the ideas. If someone asked me why I study what I do, I could simply send them to this web page and say "that's why." Anyway, I teach a class on this material at UCLA and have found your site most useful in helping my students understand some concepts. I (and they) thank you for your efforts. Jay Phelan
January 31, 2002 very interesting, easy to follow, eyecatching and useful
January 31, 2002 wow, it's good
January 31, 2002 Great job
January 31, 2002 This is a very good resource of learning more on this topic.
February 02, 2002 I thought is was very educational and many people who read this could learn from it.
February 03, 2002 The specific data presented appears to have been made more readable for the uneducated at the expense of the availability real information. Reply from PK Fair comment, but bear in mind that many of my users are just starting to explore the topics. In this sense they are uneducated. Once they have grasped the basic outline they can follow the links to the original papers at the end of many of the web pages.
February 04, 2002 I came across your comprehensive site whilst looking for distance learning courses. I am interested in studying for an MSc in a Psychology related area via distance learning but was not satisfied by the Open University options. I work full time as an assistant psychologist and therefore could not give enough hours a week to attend lectures 9-5pm, hence the distance learning search. I am therefore enquiring about the possibility of the University of Plymouth providing an on-line Msc using resources such as this one. Obviously this resource was designed for feedback but i would really appreciate any response you could give me as I am very keen. Reply from PK Sorry the University of Plymouth has no plans to offer this module via distance learning.

February 05, 2002 Excellent!
February 06, 2002 this was a great help...i needed to write an essay on the gender differences in infancy and early childhood for a psychology class, and this was a great help to find information and knowledge on the topic. i found the diagrams and graphs a great help also.

February 06, 2002

I'm a student at the University of Ilinois and I have an assignment in my PSYCH class asking us to do a review
on an internet sight that visits the brain and its many workings. I really enjoyed viewing this page and will use this
site as a refrence when studying for my exam.
February 07, 2002 would it be possible to reduce the size of some of the diagrams, they take up far too much room and now we have to buy our own copies it costs far too much money, and on this particular occasion i have run out of money so i am unable to print out a whole copy of the lecture hand out, as you can imagine it is rather annoying. thank you.
February 08, 2002
Very good, very helpful. Thanks. Anja Siegmund, Germany
February 11, 2002
why not begin with close up and used saved space to slow action down? the zooming in is a waste of information space
February 11, 2002 amazing - very helpful and useful for revision
February 11, 2002 I am doing a study into motivating children and had been recomended to read about Seligman with regards to Learned Helplessness. Your information was very detailed and relevant! Thank you !

Hi, I thought this was a very useful and clear way to back up my lecture notes!!!
February 13, 2002 *************
Hello Dr Kenyon I am a mature psychology student studying at *************, I am researching the biological bases of depression and how it is treatable with medication. Since I am in my first year and I am unfamiliar with behavioural neuroscience, I am finding the terminology quite difficult, however, your explanations seem to cut through the academic language and offer a clear and precise explanation. I believe that yours is a fantastic website and can only envy your students! I will continue to use your website to enhance the learning experience I receive at ***********, and I take this opportunity to thank you for a pleasurable learning experience!
Kind regards

February 14, 2002 Why do anitdepressant drugs take so long to build up to an effective level in the system? Do you think that drug companies will ever produce an anit depressant drug that works as quickly as the average over the counter pain killer?Reply from PK. Here are some thoughts on these questions.

February 14, 2002 What a wonderful way of demonstrating how a neurotransmitter, such as serotonin, gets to where it needs to go in order to sustain systems in the brain! The loading speed is fine; detail and clarity are fine. I would like to see more, such as the entire route that serotonin must make in order to prevent depression, such as in Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.
February 18, 2002 very interesting!!!
February 20, 2002 EXCELLENT! couldn't be better!
February 20, 2002 damn good
February 21, 2002
Thought this site was well documentated and was the only good site I could find that described the hormones released during stress. Also didn't ake long for everything to load up.
February 21, 2002 Hi, I really like the idea of the website, it makes the infomation from lectures clear and easy to find. I am dyslexic and I find taking notes from lectures extremely difficult and having notes I can print out and read through before the lecture has made things much easier. Thanks.
February 21, 2002 really helpful to us at keele university - many thanks
February 22, 2002 extremely slow to download and rarely available on the web. However, useful when available. printable format would be much better as printing cuts off right side of web page!
February 25, 2002 I found this site to be very helpful. Thank you
February 26, 2002 I am currently writing an Extended Essay for the International Baccalaureate program regarding the topic 'learned helplessness'. This is by far the best web-site I have come across thus far. Thank-you for all your help!!!
February 27, 2002 Very nice short tour of evolutionary psychology. Glad to have the extra resources.

February 28, 2002 Hi, I'm a college student. Your site was very helpful for me because I'm doing a presentation on anti-anxiety disorders. Thanks for the help
March 01, 2002 What happens to the brain (receptors and neurotransmitters) during drug withdrawls?
March 03, 2002 This site is great, just the stuff i needed to complete my science assignment. But one thing you could put in is a brain that has been cut twice, once lengthways and once across, showing what it looks like from a different angle.
March 04, 2002 Very impressive
March 06, 2002
good speed, etc the details are a bit much, could do with a simpla link to a handout that could be used for the lecture

March 19, 2002 This page could have more about what LH and VMH is.
March 21, 2002 I thought tha the txt was ok the only problem is that you haven't explained the effects of stress on the human body
March 24, 2002 loading speed too was so long that I never got to view the animation.
March 25, 2002 Excellent
March 25, 2002 it's not so good. the short clip is absolutely helpless and i personally did not achieve any information about this topic.

I am very happy to have found this learning resource. I am preparing a course on behaviural ecology with hints of evolutionary psychology and I am going to tell my students to come to this web page.
April 07, 2002 This was a very helpful site. It was a suggested supplementary site in my physiology of behaviour textbook and it was of great use for me, especially the graphs, very easy to read, navigate through, and understand.
April 10, 2002
Do you need me to say more? WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thank you for making it available.
May 19, 2002 this was great, but it would have been better if there was a clip available to see in action. Thanks, Cathryn

May 23, 2002
Great! Very comprehensive. Loading is quite commendable and the organisation is perfect.
May 27, 2002 The whole website is amazing. The speed is good, the layout is good, etc.
The only critism is that i think you should only include what we definetely need to know for the exam- no extra information because there is a lot to learn!
May 29, 2002
Absolutely brilliant. A great help
May 30, 2002 excellent

July 20, 2002 I teach A level psychology and have found this an excellent learninhg resource for myself and will use many of the ideas in my own lessons.
July 21, 2002 Excellent! The visuals, the summaries and objective depiction of findings is rare to find in the web. However, I would add more information on homosexuality,the psychological causes in particular, as it is crucial to the subject.
July 29, 2002
This resource was great! Lots of information, easy to read and understand on-screen. Loaded quickly.
July 29, 2002 Excellent source of information! All "under one roof"! I absolutely loved it! Thanks!

August 06, 2002 Superbly structured and expressed. Some info cross-links would be welcomed. Finally, I would love to read other 'lectures' in the series (i.e. within "year 1") but am unable to access the index. Would you be able to advise, please?
August 06, 2002 Thank you for a wonderful site in which the writing was in 'plain english' making it easier to understand, thank you i can now understand evolutionary psychology better.
August 08, 2002 Thank you very much. The information i have read is excellent. Rate it as 10++++++
August 21, 2002
Very fast loading
Well maintained site

very informative.
August 27, 2002 i have nevwr found such a complete information about particular topic.
August 28, 2002 I really enjoyed and gained a lot of information from this site. I think Evolutionary Psychology can explain altruism. Supporting others increases the support that our children will have. If Humans were not supportive of each other, the society would soon disentigrate.

September 10, 2002 Thank you for providing such a easy to follow informative and well presented site. I have found it has increased my understanding.

absolutely wonderful! Thank you!
September 18, 2002 This was a very interesting and well-laid out resource.

I wonder if you might be tempted to clarify some things and perhaps indicate, where appropriate, what degree of weight attaches to the answer especially given current research.

1. What are the implications of this experiment for Seligman's cognitive theory as far as the ABCDE approach is used to treat children and adults? That is, how much damage does it do to his practical advice in tackling learned helplessness?

2. Though referring to Pavlov, Seligman argues elsewhere that John Garcia had undermined the Pavlovian model of conditioning. Garcia's experiments fit very well the model of learning put forward by the philosopher Karl Popper, who has denied there is anything like the reflex arc and that Pavlov's theory is a misinterpretation. What is the state of play on this?

3. Is the concept of learned helplessness importantly different from depression? Particularly in relation to whether the causes are cognitive/mental or physiological?

I am intrigued by this research after having stumbled across Seligman's book setting on his Darwinian views of psychology which dovetail very much with the kind of Darwinian theory of knowledge I currently accept in philosophy.

Seligman's book dates back to 1990 and I am curious whether there is a more recent popular book that is more up-to-date on the current field of research.

Thank you for your time and I will of couse understand if you feel it inappropriate to reply.

Reply from PK: You can use the controls underneath the movie to control its speed.
November 14, 2002 It is very well structured, gives interesting examples and discussion points. I used this resource for the undergraduate course "Psychoneuroendocrinology".

November 20, 2002 This has been the best website for this topic that I have found, and I think you for making such a well detailed and clear information site!
November 21, 2002 It loads nicely. You might want to slow down the animation. It will give people more time to figure out what's going on.

February 02, 2003 Its a great resource, nicely taking advantage of the extra information styles accessible in this format.
February 02, 2003
Just a word regarding the usability of your web site: this page (EvolutionaryPsychology.html) is more than 500 Kb in size and takes 20 minutes to download...
February 05, 2003 notes are good, but you have too much, and they are not very printer friendly, ...........
February 11, 2003 excellent
February 11, 2003 I am a an A Level psychology student and found this to be a fantastic site to get clued up on some basic knowledge on topics Im about to cover in my classes. Good, clear, format and little Psycho-babble. Well done!
February 12, 2003
This is an excellent learning resource, i wish all the modules that i'm taking were this eaily linked to. it loaded very quickly and the information i needed was easily found. Excellent information!

February 17, 2003 very good. nice to be able to do it in own time & not to have to rely on only notes taken in the workshop.
February 17, 2003 thank you for making my studies that much easier through your notes.
February 18, 2003 In all honesty this is probably the best article I have ever found online. I think it will really help me in my studies. The references are also helpful because it leads to on to accessing other articles. Thank You!
February 18, 2003 your references are wrong

February 24, 2003 I think that this page is great. The material covered is extremely interesting, whilst being informative and challenging. Also, the concepts covered are presented in an accessible way. Of particular interest is the 'EP is NOT' section, which helps to put EP into a political perspective. Looking forward to the next lecture!
February 24, 2003
Not good, preferred to be taught properly!

March 01, 2003 It was helpful, but I think it would have been easier if the yellow neruot. stayed yellow as it broke up.
March 02, 2003 don't have the camera zoom in like that, it's very distracting
March 02, 2003
its good!!!
March 06, 2003 It is very interesting and comprehensive. Thank you very much.
March 06, 2003
you should have a chart that directly compares the differences in anxiety drugs like valium, librium, paxil, buspar, xanax etc. It could compare the side effects, effectiveness, addictiveness, etc. good site though!
March 07, 2003 graphics are a bit too fast, but overall it's a great resource.

April 30, 2003 Thanks for your site - I'm a layman interested in evolutionary psychology and it has explained a great deal that I could not have gotten to in any other way.

May 01, 2003 it is nice but it can be made more animated if: the ones that difuse through the ECF are realy seen penitrating while that taken by the enzyme are eaten by an animal that is titled as enzyme, and the ones reuptaken are broken to their elements

May 18, 2003 I was writing a paper on depression; the site as a whole was very useful in my presentation to my chemistry class, especially the animation of the neurotransmitters in the synaptic cleft.
May 21, 2003 This is an excellent sight; the best I have seen so far
May 21, 2003  Wow! This is great but you did spell organization wrong.

June 04, 2003 this source was really helpful very simple to use and the detail included was just enough. Similarly if needed extra sources were provided which again was very useful.
June 04, 2003 I find this to be an excellent resource. I am a school psychologist in Toledo, Ohio, USA. I am currently teaching a Testing and Assessment course at a local university and I am using your material for background.

June 16, 2003 Well organised, loaded well through broadband. I Used great chunks of it on a lecture I had to do to my fellow nursing students on strokes and brain anatomy.
June 16, 2003
this is great. i have narcolepsy, symptoms of ADHD and have suffered severe mental trauma thru an abusive marriage and the fallout. I am trying to get medicated correctly and the doctors think everyone is a drug addict and I have spent 20 years of my life ruining other lives and being a nonproductive member of society while they prescribed every non effective medication known to man. My options became street drugs, now I am trying to do it legally. I have an advanced education and when under control used to run a multimillion dollar company. I appreciate the sight and my two children will too. It will help me learn how to help myself.

Thank you.
June 18, 2003  Excellent!

October 23, 2003 : I would like it if you all would add some pictures to help me better understand what the ***** you all are talking about. Especially when you talk about Beauty and Symmetry and explain the waist to hip ratio--'0.7' and '1.0' means absolutely nothing to me. That does not help me at all.
These additions would greatly approve your site. Thanks in advance.

November 08, 2003 With reference to the graphs, you can not always see the whole graph on the page, which makes it hard to understand as the axis and their labels are not all visible.
November 09, 2003
excellent site. however, please fix grammar, e.g.: galen did not run "foul" of inquisition, but rather, "afoul". thanks.
November 09, 2003 Thank you I found this site very useful. The content was clear and simple. The queries I have are related to the other factors that reduce the strength of Dopamine theory e.g stress, the location in brain of the dopamine therapeutic effects.

January 05, 2004 Excellent. I'm just a classical musician (also trained in Vet Science) thinking about emotions and the motor system; the internet can be very hit and miss for this sort of armchair research, but this was definitely a hit.
January 07, 2004 many of the links on the site on neurotransmitters are dead. Apart from that, still a fantastic resource.

January 08, 2004 Good for my grade 12 Biology class, but I was looking for info of specific neurotransmitters
