With the seemingly never-ending events going on in the world, people are looking for solace. They want to find ways to reduce their stress and anxiety. And, along with that, they want some additional information on how the brain works.
Not to the point of taking university classes. Rather, they want to see how neural pathways can be built for good and bad thoughts. They desire an understanding of the brain chemicals that potentially lead to depression and/or anxiety. They seek the connection between neuroscience and psychiatry.
Where textbooks and encyclopedias were once the main go-to for this understanding, the internet has been the main location for neuroscience and psychiatry resources for some time. However, because there is so much material out there, it may be difficult for someone to find the right information.
Here are three ways to find accurate neuroscience and psychiatry resources online.
Board-Certified Creator and/or Staff
Take a look at the Home or About Us page for the site you’re interested in. Hopefully, the site’s creator and/or staff are board-certified. In other words, they practice neuroscience or psychiatry on a regular basis. For example, BehavorialHealth2000 was created by a board-certified doctor who provides online courses on the brain.
A good deal of research into the neurosciences is done at government agencies like the National Institutes of Health (NIH). In fact, many of their studies and results are posted on a regular basis for the public to examine. While these may get a bit technical, the papers provide a great deal of present-day information.
Colleges and Universities
Some of the items you see on the NIH site stem from studies done at colleges and universities across the globe. Both students and staff work together in many cases to find the cause of a neurological condition and if psychiatric solutions are warranted.
