  • If you wish to add a subclass of an existing category, navigate to the category, click the edit tab and use the right hand Tools Box. Under the blue Category section, click "sub/super", type the name of your new category, and then click the appropriate link just below that text box.

[edit] Basic Paragraph Formatting

  • Single newlines are ignored

Neurolex, however, is a dynamic site and any content beyond the identifier should not be presumed to reflect the content or views of the source ontology. Users should consult with the authoritative source for each ontology for current information.
