Brain Dissection || Always on My Mind
How does your brain work? Learn how to dissect a brain in this video, which also covers its external and internal anatomy and physiology. In this simple dissection of a brain, you’ll learn various parts of its physiology, the functions of various components, and what a cross-section of the brain looks like.
The brain is the most complex organ of the human body. They coordinate information to and from every part of the body. How do they do it? Their various parts and how they work are fascinating to learn about! In this video, you’ll learn general information about the brain, which will be tied into its anatomical structures.
This dissection lab is for anyone who is curious about brain anatomy, wants to cover brain anatomy for a course, missed the heart dissection during biology class, or just wondered, “How does my brain work?”. The video will teach you how to dissect a brain step by step, and review the external and internal anatomy of the brain.
In this video, we’ll cover the following structures:
Neurons (discussed) Temporal lobe
Synapses (discussed) Frontal lobe
Dura mater Parietal lobe
Meninges Occipital lobe
Brainstem Central sulcus
Spinal cord Left + Right hemispheres
Medulla Corpus callosum
Pons Lateral ventricle
Cerebellum Pineal gland
Optic nerves Hypothalamus
Olfactory bulbs Grey matter
Gyri White matter
