MyPsychLab is the online resource that comes with the Pinel Biopsychology (8th edition) textbook. It provides many useful resources related to the content in the textbook. There are videos and psychological simulations, 3D models of the brain, practice tests, flash cards, an electronic version of the textbook that you can read online and a whole lot more. Check it out.
Action Potential Video One of the many videos out there that try to simulate an Action Potential. None of them are completely satisfactory but this one is pretty good--at least for an overview of how the process works. (Note: The movement of ions to correct hyperpolarisation occurs by active transport using the sodium-potassium pumps (purple block) rather than by diffusion as the narration states)
Biological Psychology Website for the Breedlove, Watson, & Rosenzweig Biopsychology book. This wonderful, rigorous biopsychology textbook has some excellent learning simulations and videos you might want to check out. I wish this book weren't quite so difficult for undergraduates; it's an excellent biopsychology text.

The Boy with the Incredible Brain
This video is about Daniel Tammet. A twenty-something with extraordinary mental abilities, Daniel is one of the world’s few savants. He can do calculations to 100 decimal places in his head, and learn a language in a week. This documentary follows Daniel as he travels to America to meet the scientists who are convinced he may hold the key to unlocking similar abilities in everyone. He also meets the world’s most famous savant, the man who inspired Dustin Hoffman’s character in the Oscar winning film ‘Rain Man’. (2005)

Brenda Milner Video - Milner is the neuropsychologist most associated with the patient HM who developed severe anterograde amnesia as a result of a bilateral medial temporal lobe surgery for epilepsy. As this video shows, Milner is famous not only for her pathbreaking discoveries about HM and human memory but for a whole range of discoveries about brain function and the effects of brain damage on memory and other function. She is characterized as one of the pioneers of modern neuropsychology.
Brenda Milner on Charlie Rose - Milner made a 2010 appearance on the Charlie Rose Series of Episodes on the Brain with Larry Squire, Scott Small, Eric Kandel, John Hardy, and Brenda Milner. This was Episode 6. The part with Milner starts about 11 or 12 minutes into the video.
Charlie Rose: The Brain Series - A series of episodes on the Charlie Rose Show about the brain. The shows cover many neuroscience topics (e.g. autism, Parkinson's Disease, consciousness, agnosias, schizophrenia and others) and involve well-known and famous neuroscientist guests such as Eric Kandel, Brenda Milner, Patricia Churchland, Stanislas Dehaene, Patricia Kuhl, Elizabeth Spelke, Giacomo Rizzolatti, and Oliver Sacks.
Dichotic Listening Task - This demonstration of the dichotic listening task is often used to test for lateralization of language function. You will need to wear a pair of stereo headphones during the demonstration. You will hear a series of phonemes (e.g. "ba" or "ta") spoken aloud, one phoneme to each ear. You're task is to report which phoneme you heard in each ear.

Genes to Cognition - is another website that is part of the Cold Spring Harbor DNA Learning Center. Genes to Cognition is about modern neuroscience, focusing on cognitive disorders, cognitive processes, and research approaches. Use the dynamic network maps to explore a library of 750+ unique items. Or, use the linear Selected Items menu on top of each map to tour selected content. Explore, interact, and have fun!
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) Introduction Video - A nice introduction to MRI that explains how it works, how it was discovered and its future possibilities. There's a nice demonstration of how magnetic field changes are monitored and used to create an image of the brain.
Clive Wearing - The man with a 30 second memory. Clive Wearing suffers from profound amnesia, both anterograde amnesia (like HM) which means he can't remember anything new for longer than 30 seconds. In addition, he's lost access to many older memories and doesn't recognize people he knew before. However, he does recognize his wife. He knows who she is in other words. Unfortunately, because of his profound anterograde amnesia, he doesn't remember that he's seen her from one episode to the next. Therefore, when he sees her, he usually experiences a strong emotional reaction, as though he's seeing her for the first time in years. This is due to his profound anterograde amnesia. There are many sad elements to his predicament. For example, he's an accomplished musician yet doesn't remember that he can play piano, for example. Nonetheless, though he claims not to play piano, when forced to sit at the piano and play he remembers how to play. This is a clear demonstration that his procedural memories are intact. This anterograde amnesia video shows the profound effect of his condition upon Clive--he continually describes his conscious experiences as one of he has 'just waken up'; he has no conscious recollection of anything previously in his life.

V. S. Ramachandran TED Talk On Your Mind is a fascinating talk about what brain damage can reveal about the connection between the brain and the mind, using three startling delusions as examples, one of which is the Capgras Syndrome, in which a brain-damaged young man no longer recognizes his mother and father, but thinks they are impostors, two people who look like his parents but are not his parents.

My Youtube Split Brain Videos - I have links to several videos here with split-brain patients. Video 1 is an early split brain video illustrating some of the basic tasks used with split-brain patients to show lateralization of function. The researcher is Michael Gazzaniga and the participant is Gazzaniga's split-brain participant who has worked with Gazzaniga for many years, Joe -- like Brenda Milner's patient H.M. Video 1 demonstrates how Joe can see an object or a word with his right brain but not be able to say what he saw, but he can draw what he saw. Video 2 is a more recent and longer video of Gazzaniga and Joe (about 10 minutes). It shows some of the same phenomena presented in the first video, but it also shows that Joes' split-brain condition provides a way to test the hypothesis that faces (e.g. your friend Joe) seem to be recognized by the right hemisphere while other objects (e.g. a pumpkin) are recognized by the left hemisphere.

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation Demonstration - This entertaining video shows how TMS (Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation) works. The subject is asked to repeat the nursery rhyme "Humpty dumpty…" and while repeating it,the researcher applies TMS to a language area of the brain. The result is disruption of normal language speaking function. Even more interesting, is the subsequent demonstration that despite language disruption by TMS, singing words remains unaffected by the manipulation.
Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation and Choosing an Action - Using Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS), University of California neuroscientist, Flavio Oliveira is researching how decisions are made by studying which hand a person chooses for an action. Oliveira's findings are helping scientists better understand how the brain works which could one day lead to better treatments for stroke patients.
