All About Brains.com – a “youtube.com” of brain info
That’s kind of an all-encompassing, yet focused website name, and it’s the headline and subhead of http://www.allaboutbrain.com/
If you go to the site right now, the first thing you see is a clip of PBS’ Gwen Ifill, Senior Correspondent interviewing Dr. Murali Doraiswamy of Duke University School of Medicine about decreasing rates of dementia. That’s first class content.
If you then scroll down a bit, you’ll see another video, this one’s “What are the Symptoms of Brain Tumors?” Or, if you're a nerd, zip over to a link to a segment entitled, “The Brain with Bill Nye the Science Guy” - http://www.allaboutbrain.com/the-brain-with-bill-nye-the-science-guy
According to the “About Us” tab on the website “We have decided to use All About Brain as a vehicle to provide available video information to those needing to learn about the functioning of the brain and how they may discover to correct or live/deal with certain problems that may occur now or in the future.
You will find many studies in the form of video’s and tutorials concerning the lungs and functioning of the brain. Follow them closely and understand that we do not provide medical advice whatsoever, as that is left to your personal health care physician.”
I love the high-quality content and video-centric content. To me, this is the "youtube.com" brain website - perfect for those of us who crave visuals.
Ooh, and they have a really good “Resources Online Links” page - http://www.allaboutbrain.com/resources-online-links/ (even though it doesn’t include my blog).
