Simple and sweet
I'm a 35 year old grad student taking an intro course in neuroscience. Within five minutes, after flipping the 3D model around and reading the descriptions, I finally made some connections about the hypothalamus that I've never been able to make after all these years staring at boring illustrations in textbooks. I got more excited about learning this stuff so I figure that's worth five stars at least. The notes are very good too and thank god written in language I can understand. So thank you for a great app.
Great informative app- but...
This app works wonders for those wishing to absorb knowledge and further increase their arsenal of psychology info- buuut, on the flipside i was expecting much better graphics- and a far smoother transition when moving the 3D models- it didnt really feel like the actual graphics of the models had changed when i spent money to upgrade. If that can be improved with an update- then that would be awesome! Great app otherwise!
Bought this to accompany my reading of a neuroscience text book. Navigating the brain on this app while reading the book definitely enhanced the experience, allowing me to learn the material more quickly. Definitely recommend! Would totally pay for more interactive functionality. Perhaps such things could be added a la carte (.99 to 1.99 a piece)? Maybe add diagrams of motor neurons, interneurons, and glia? Charge for quizzes and flashcards? Great app!
