Human MidSagittal

Here is a closer midsagittal view of the human brain. The blue lines represent where we can slice- either in the forebrain or the hindbrain. If you want to see a cross-section of the forebrain, click on the right portion of the image. If you'd rather see the hindbrain, click on the left half of the image.
