At first glance one might say that these brains look completely different. Yet, you have probably noticed a few similarities:

  • each brain has discrete structures
  • each brain has a spinal cord descending from it
  • although shown from a lateral view, each brain has two hemispheres


Would you like to explore differences between brains, or would you rather compare brains and body sizes?
