Brain-Parietal Lobe

The sheep brain shown below has the frontal and parietal lobe of the cerebrum pinned. The frontal lobe is responsible for cognitive functions such as learning and decision making. The parietal lobe is involved in how the brain processes and interprets sensory information. The cerebellum is pinned also, …

Superior Colliculus

The superior colliculus is part of the midbrain, also known as the tectum in non-mammalian vertebrates.  This area of the brain directs behavioral responses, particularly how the eyes respond to stimulus and the corresponding movement of the head and neck. If you are looking for this structure in …

Brain – Transverse Fissure

The cerebrum and cerebellum of the brain are divided by the transverse fissure.   The left and right hemispheres of the brain are divided by the longitudinal fissure. A fissure is a groove or a natural division, and with the brain are divide major regions. Sulci (singular: sulcus) are …

Brain – Pineal Gland

The pineal gland (also called pineal body) is located in the midbrain and is one of the few non-paired structures of the brain.     The pineal gland is part of the endocrine system and produces the hormone melatonin.  Melatonin is associated with sleep patterns and circadian rhythms. …

  A = cerebrum (parietal lobe) B = gyri (convolutions) C = corpus callosum D = frontal lobe E = thalamus F = hypothalamus G = pituitary gland H = midbrain J = pons K= medulla L = cerebellum (showing arbor vitae) M = transverse fissure N = …

Brain Dissection, Internal

This video shows the a sagittal cut in the brain of a sheep and identifies the major structures of the brain such as the  cerebrum, corpus callosum, cerebellum, pons, medulla, thalamus, hypothalamus, pineal gland, and the four ventricles.

Sheep Brain, External Anatomy

Video shows the major structures:  cerebrum, transverse fissure, longitudinal fissure, superior and inferior colliculi, pineal gland, cerebellum.

Brains with Dura Mater

These brains are shipped with the dura mater intact.   Students carefully remove the dura to expose the soft tissue of the cerebrum underneath.
