Remote Ready Biology Learning Activities has 50 remote-ready activities, which work for either your classroom or remote teaching.
This web exhibit was first built in 2000 by Patricia Anne Kinser, Haverford College, under the direction of Paul Grobstein, Bryn Mawr College. The updated version of Comparative Neuroanatomy and Intelligence is now online at http://serendipstudio.org/exchange/brains. This old version has been archived in place, and will continue to be available for teachers and students who are using it.

The Neuron- Up Close and Personal
Here are the brains of five animals: a human brain, a monkey brain, a cat brain, a rat brain, and a frog brain. We're getting ready to slice into these brains and explore their inner workings.
What do you expect to see? Will it look like one big glob of matter? Or will there be specific separate structures with different functions? When we look at the human brain, we will be able to know whether this person was "smart"??
Let's begin our dissection of these brains by making a sagittal cut at the mid-saggittal plane so that we can see the inner surface. (click here for a review this terminology) Click on any of the brains above or on the button below . . .
