Mind & Brain Portal, from Wikipedia

Wikipedia may be controversial, but that's because some stuff is good & some stuff is, well, not reliable.

That said, the Mind & Brain Portal (which I found through Sci Am Mind) is "an interdisciplinary point of entry to such related fields as the philosophy of mind, neuroscience, linguistics, and psychology."

It links to wikipedia topics like artificial intelligence, consciousness, cognitive science, perception, and philosophy of mind. It also links to people in the field of cognitive science, such as Christof Koch, David Chalmers, and Noam Chomsky. There's a list of people & concepts that are missing; if you want to contribute to wikipedia & know something about intentional system or simulation theory of mind, here's your chance.

Interesting way to use Wikipedia. Nice for browsing or sharing with students.
