This resource is primarily targeting the lay public. The short articles are not meant to develop foundational knowledge, but rather to provide facts. Some of the articles discuss high-interest topics in neuroscience, and so could be used as supplemental resources for a college classroom. If you follow the menu link "Publications & Handouts", you can select University Students as your audience and are provided with 4 (as of 8/11/21) resources of very narrow scope. These could be useful in a neuroscience course, depending on level and topic. Overall, the website is easy to navigate and there are also resources for doing outreach programming, which may also be part of a college course or organization.
