Student Resource: ClinicalTrials.gov

If you are just learning your way around disorders of the brain and the central nervous system, topics that likely would be of interest to you are how these conditions are treated and what current research is being performed to seek out new treatments.

For pharmaceutical research, you can determine the current clinical-trials environment with a resource like ClinicalTrials.gov.

The best way to use this resource is to learn about the Advanced Search option. Begin by playing with different methods of using the advanced search, such as by medical condition or age group. Look for broad results but then use several different parameters to focus in on very specific results.

It, alongside other great resources such as PubMed, can be part of your approach to keeping up to date in those areas of neuropsychology that are of interest to you.
