Article excerpt

Elsevier Science has announced the launch of the Encyclopedia of Neuroscience on CD-ROM, a multimedia reference resource. Edited by George Adelman, of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and Barry Smith, president and CEO of Dreyfus Health Foundation, the encyclopedia represents the culmination of an international effort to create a definitive reference work and educational tool that takes advantage of the latest developments in electronic information technology.

For neuroscientists and researchers, the Encyclopedia of Neuroscience (first edition) has served as a source of information for more than a decade. Now, the second edition, a revised and enlarged version, is available on a single CD-ROM. Most contributions are enhanced by the inclusion of color illustrations and other graphics, animations, video sequences, and sound clips.

With the guidance of a prominent advisory board, the Encyclopedia has achieved a broad scope and interdisciplinary coverage. More than 800 new or expanded contributions from internationally renowned experts, including several Nobel laureates, reflect the cutting edge of basic and clinical research. Such topics as neuroactive substances, neuro-imaging, theoretical neurobiology, motor control, neuropharmacology, neuronal regeneration, and molecular genetic neuroscience are covered. A compendium on the development, current status, and future direction of neuroscience is provided as well.

The CD-ROM's sophisticated search interface allows users to locate and retrieve information or browse through topics of interest. The CD also features useful navigational links to relevant Web sites and to more than 14,000 EMBASE abstracts of articles recently published in top neuroscience journals. …
