    In the category of brain stimulating, I'd recommend a mind mapping application. FreeMind is free and works well. Inspiration is often used by schools (not free), but toggles nicely into outlines. Shop around for a student discount making it $50.

    I'd also look for knowledge management software software such as Yojimbo by Bare Bones, Circus Ponies Notebook, or DEVONthink Personal. The two last programs have academic discounts bringing them into the ~$30 range.

    I'll get back when more comes to mind.
