The Beautiful Brain is an online magazine on the art and science of the human brain:

“The Beautiful Brain explores the latest findings from the ever-growing field of neuroscience through monthly long-form essays, reviews, galleries, short-form blog posts and more, with particular attention to the dialogue between the arts and sciences. The site illuminates important new questions about creativity, the mind of the artist, and the mind of the observer that modern neuroscience is helping us to answer, or at least to provide part of an answer. Instances where art seeks to answer questions of a traditionally scientific nature are also of great interest, and for that reason you will hear from artists as well as scientists on The Beautiful Brain.” <link>

I am always looking for new ways of connecting readers with clear, concise, and free learning on the web. I was therefore delighted to receive an email from Alan at directing me to their blog. Browsing the many interesting posts on divergent topics and resources related to college and academic life, I’ve selected a few that particularly stood out to me.

You can find the blog here.

Finally, I would like to encourage people to likewise send me links that you think would be of interest to readers of this blog. But I would also add that (in keeping with the spirit of this blog) links, videos, and tutorials must be freely accessible and educational in nature.
