brain-wavesWork in progress: Please find here a first rough guide to the Exernomics website and its extensions. This section will be improved and completed as the project moves ahead. If you are web savvy you may not wish to take your time reading this. Still, perhaps a quick glance . . .


The best way to gain full control of the site is to review the following with both a tablet and PC on your desk  Then we propose you keep this page on the tablet so that you can keep track of what happens on the PC as you move through each successive section and link, one by one by one.
