Search Our Collection of Resources

Our website uses an advanced search engine to find the topics you’re interested in. If you know the term you’re looking for, please use quotes around your topic. For example, if you are looking for targeted results for Psychosis please type “Psychosis”.

In addition to searching by topic, you can search for sessions based upon the resource type.  Each resource is organized around a specific teaching modality. Interactive sessions are particularly well suited for the classroom. These sessions are generally 30-90 minutes and include group exercises.  Each approach (or teaching modality) includes a step-by-step facilitator’s guide and follows a similar format between sessions. Other resources, such as our brief reviews, clinical commentaries, and video series, may also be used in the classroom or for self-study. However, they are also particularly well suited to teaching in clinical settings.  Given their brevity (typically requiring around 10 minutes) these resources can be used with trainees in the moment, with minimal preparation, and adapted for discussion of real-world cases. A brief description of each type of resource is included with the links below.

Learning Modules at a Glance

What to Say When Patients Ask

Each “What to Say” session is a companion to a Clinical Commentary or an NNCI video and is organized
around answering an imagined patient’s questions about their illness, symptoms, treatment or
expected outcome/response from a neuroscience perspective.

BRAIN Online

BRAIN Online is a 16-session course covering a broad overview of cutting edge topics
that can be completed asynchronously or easily adapted for in-class use.

Clinical Neuroscience Conversations

The “Clinical Neuroscience Conversation” module includes a collection of short teaching videos,
each 10 minutes or less, directly linked to a hypothetical clinical scenario.

Ten to the Fifteenth 

Join host Dr. David Ross in an exploration of how the modern neuroscience
revolution is redefining the way we think about psychiatric illness today
— and how it will continue to shape the future of our field.

Brief Reviews & Clinical Commentaries

Brief, Accessible Reviews and Clinical Commentaries each take one concept in modern psychiatry that
individuals might not be familiar with and explain it in a clear and accessible manner.

This “Stuff” is Really Cool

These are a series of brief (7-8 minute) talks, each on a specific neuroscience topic, that are a
hybrid between a Moth story, a TED talk, and a Pecha Kucha talk.

Neuroscience Lab

These experiential exercises capitalize on multimodal sensory learning
to teach core neuroscience concepts.

Expert Videos

Our “Expert Videos” are a series of brief videos (typically 3-5 minutes) in which leading
neuroscience experts describe the current state of the field.

Neuroscience in the Media

In these sessions, participants review a brief media piece on psychiatry and
neuroscience and then appraise the scientific literature related to its content.

Translational Neuroscience

Through this interactive session, participants work in groups to discuss clinical vignettes and review
publications on potential new treatment approaches informed by cutting-edge neuroscience.

Integrative Case Conference

In these sessions, participants practice incorporating a neuroscience
perspective as a core component of case formulation.

Progressive Case Conference

In these sessions, students are divided into small groups, presented with the beginning
of a case vignette, and given a brief period of time to answer a series of
questions which evolve as the case unfolds.
