These brains are shipped with the dura mater intact. Students carefully remove the dura to expose the soft tissue of the cerebrum underneath.
Finding the superior and inferior mesenteric arteries takes patience. Carefully tease away the connective tissue around the large intestine and find where it attaches to the abdominal aorta. A = abdominal aorta B = celiac trunk C = superior mesenteric artery D = inferior mesenteric artery
Yellow = gastrocnemius Red = biceps femoris Blue = semitendinosis

A. Stomach B. Duodenum C. Jejunum (small intestine) D. Ascending Colon AB Cecum AC. Mesentery AD. Appendix AE. Ileum (small intestine)
If you trace the aorta into the abdomen, it will eventually branch into two large vessels that go into the lower extremities, the external iliac arteries. Smaller vessels, the internal iliac vessels supply blood to the genitals.
This image shows the superior vena cava and the two brachiocephalic veins that branch from it. The brachiocephalic vein then branches into the subclavian artery and the external jugular veins.
