Hi All,

Many free papers/journals on PubMed Central
http://www.pubmedcentral.nih.gov/

(We have some full text papers on our site but they need a free registering)

Have you come across different interrelated subjects that talk about the same thing in essence, but each subject alone by its own individual frame of reference cannot give you a full perspective or complete picture to understand the matter in focus? You really wish you could learn something in a combined and unified manner.

The website is a place to explore the different mind sciences and technology from an integrative approach. An integrated model of the mind sciences combines various studies of the mind and mind related things. To integrate is to make into a whole by bringing all parts together, to unify. Seeing things from an integrated perspective is seeing things from a holistic and complete point of view.

Some interesting lectures on many topics regarding neuroscience. There is some discussion on how neuroscience plays into philosophy of religions, religious experience and neuroscience and some on affective neuroscience.
Anyways, its a pretty cool site.

I didn't see this posted so I wanted to add it:

http://www.quackwatch.org/index.html

This is an incredibly informative website about quackery in medicine and healthcare. I've spent hours reading it, and I think people who want to procreate should first be required to know a great deal of material on that site. Sites like that need more exposure!

People need to become aware of these methods and why they're unacceptable.
