Introduction

Welcome to the interactive dissection guide

 

Please take a minute to learn about the different features of this website.

In each section you will find descriptions and images of the different nervous system structures. Words that are marked in bold represent structures that you can see in the image, hovering over them will highlight the structure's location in the image.

​​

The "Show all" button can be used to show all of the highlighted structures in an image.

Interactive 3D models

For some of the structures, we have prepared interactive 3D models. Press play and explore the model. You can rotate it, zoom in and out and move it around. On the bottom of the model you will find the list of annotations that mark the different structures, you can use it to navigate through them.

You may find an indication for the "plane of cut" next to an image.                          

These are the different planes:

Coronal

Horizontal

Sagittal
