Although there are a number of places to find methods, protocols, reviews and techniques (including videos) in the scientific literature and on the web, use this guide to navigate the specialized resources that are available through the Reed Library. If you can not find what you are looking for in one of these resources, try the databases listed in this guide.
Why this is useful: Review articles review/synthesize the research already done in a given area. A review article can give you a synthesis of a particular topic and provide you with an extensive bibliography. To identify review articles, most databases allow you to search by article type (review) or limit your search to reviews.
Reed Library also subscribes to a number of review journals. Titles of particular interest to neuroscience include:
