Please forward this announcement of our new service to your friends,
colleagues and other discussion groups, where appropriate.

NiBBS - News in Brain and Behavioural Sciences
Launched February, 2001

The brain and behavioural sciences incorporate the most complex and
rapidly developing fields of the twenty-first century. Each week scientists,
scholars, journalists and the public hear of new ideas, findings, and
controversies, but are often left without the contextual information, access
to intellectual resources, and informed commentary that allow a meaningful
and timely evaluation of the scientific and socio-political importance of
any new development.

By integrating resources and incorporating the features of a scientific
journal, broadsheet, news magazine, scientific database, multimedia Internet
resource, discussion group, and library our newsletter "News in Brain and
Behavioral Sciences" aims to provide the intelligent reader's solution to
information overload.

The site is updated every day with the latest news, scientific reports,
reviews and discussion. Search keys allow one-click access to: the advice
and commentary of over 3000 experts throughout the world who participate in
our research information networks; topics and authors evaluated through
searches of 12,000,000 articles published in 20,000 journals (many available
for electronic delivery); one and a half billion web pages, and two million

The topics covered by NiBBS so far this month include the Human Genome
Project, sex addiction, consciousness studies, pathological gambling, The
Bell Curve, sex differences in the expression of emotion, maternal care and
neuronal development, the efficacy of psychotherapy, pheromones, fathers and
puberty, evolutionary psychology, suicide and income, the pill and partner
choice, Darkness in El Dorado, theory of mind in chimpanzees and humans, the
causes of schizophrenia, and much more.

Keep in touch and invest your time wisely - read Nibbs every day:
