As with the cerebellum photomicrographs, these magnifications of slides of the hindbrain all look quite similar to each other. When we looked at brains on a large scale we did notice some differences in gross structure. Yet, now that we have magnified them to a great degree, the differentiation between animals seems to blur. Do you notice how similar all the neurons of the animals are? Click here to learn more about the neuron, or click one of the buttons below to continue magnifying parts of the brain.
