The seat of intelligence' Hippocrates 4th Century AD. The human brain and it's sheer complexity still remains a mysterious wonder even today. While tremendous advancements have been made in the field of neurology, unsurprisingly, there is still much to learn about this incredible organ. The functional unit the 'neuron' numbers 86 billion in total, making trillions of internal connections. The human brain accounts for only 2% of your entire body mass and yet is still the most sophisticated biological computer ever to have existed. We know you will enjoy learning about this awe inspiring organ with our brain BIOX.
So you fancy neuro? There is no better place to start than with our brain BIOX. Unlike colour coded diagrams, learning neuro isn't for the faint hearted. Get to grips with naming land marks such as the lateral and central sulcus to the pre and post central gyrus to help orientate your understanding of the specific location of the 5 lobes. Learn where each lobe sits in the cranial fossae and what folds of dura separate the areas of the brain. Navigate your way from cranium to viscera through each layer of the brain from scalp and periosteum to the glial cells of the white matter and the membraneous meningeal structures. Don't know the exact locations of the brain stem components? After this you will. Pick apart the meninges, dissect out the lateral horn of the ventricles. Finally, follow our clinical landmarks along the way highlighting fascinating pathology from strokes to Hydrocephalus - you've got this.
