According to the editor of The Journals of Ayn Rand, some of Rand's notes have not been documented in that book. While I think that's fine for things such as redundancies, some really interesting things seem to have been omitted, like her thoughts on neurology. Where can the rest of her notes be found?

You can find additional excerpts from her journals, which are largely concerned with psychology and morality, in The Passion of Ayn Rand's Critics by James Valliant (I found these fascinating). Also, you can find her notes on books in Ayn Rand's Marginalia. There may be other published works that contain more of her notes, but I'm not aware of them. However, I believe that the Ayn Rand Archives has all of them. Its stated mission is "to acquire, preserve and make available Ayn Rand’s remaining papers and related documents to serious scholars and general writers." And so, you may be able to view them on that basis.
