JST Virtual Science Center: Mind Lab

If you teach introductory psychology courses, be sure to put the JST Virtual Science Center Mind Lab on your list of resources for students. This highly interactive site beautifully illustrates principles of visual perception. More relevant for psychology of religion courses is the last section, illustrating Libet's important work examining free will. A textual eaxmination of Libet is found here, but the Mind Lab introduction is an excellent place to start. It can help students consider more deeply the question of volition and the extent to which people act as independent agents.
