Exposing the Brain

Hat tip to both Develintel and Intelligence Testing blogs, for pointing me to this useful download for teaching the neuroanatomy of the brain. Brain Voyager Brain Tutor is a free download educational program with great visuals, that lets you look at the brain, and slices of the brain, from different angles and vantage points.

Here is the description from the website:

BrainVoyager Brain Tutor is an educational program that teaches knowledge about the human brain the easy way. The program lets you interactively explore high-quality 3D head and brain models, which can be rotated, moved and zoomed in real-time. The head and brain models have been computed with BrainVoyager QX using data from magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans. Besides having fun with the rotatable 3D models, the program contains information about the major lobes, gyri and sulci of the cerebral cortex, which are revealed in color simply by clicking on a part of the brain. The next release of BV Brain Tutor will also contain Brodman areas and brain regions revealed by functional MRI.

BrainVoyager Brain Tutor runs on all major computer platforms including Windows, Linux and Mac OS X. The Mac version of BV Brain Tutor recently won the runner-up prize for the Best Original Qt Application developed with the commercial Qt license in Trolltech's Qt/Mac Application Developer Contest. BV Brain Tutor can be freely downloaded here.

Both Develintel and Intelligence Testing have some good posts up recently. Go over and check them out.
