You can do a search that maps to MeSH terms. In Advanced Search, above the three search fields, check the “Suggest Subject Terms”. Search one term at a time (i.e. ignore the other 2 search fields) for best results. Use the “Search History/Alerts” link to combine searches with boolean logic.
Click here to see a video demonstration (3 min 21 sec).
If you can’t find the “Suggest Subject Terms” checkbox, click on the MeSH link in the top blue bar instead.
