Are you interested in learning about neuroscience, but have already graduated from college? Are you looking for some simple recommendations for resources that will help satisfy your deep-seated desire to learn about the marvelous inner workings of the brain? Do you know someone who is?
Never fear, Noah Gray (also known as @noahWG on twitter) has some advice regarding the best way to get up to speed on current thinking in the neuroscience field.
Note: Noah's advice includes both blogs and books that are useful/interesting for people besides those with college degrees and no experience in neuroscience. Both pre-college and college students would find the resources useful, and I, as a graduate student in Neurosciences, have the blogs he mentions perpetually bookmarked.
Also, one personal addition to the list of books mentioned is Susan Blackmore excellent series of interviews, called Conversations of Consciousness. This book really helped get me hooked on neuroscience while I was in college, and provides an excellent sampler of various theories in the field of consciousness.
