The Frog Forebrain

[insert pic of frog forebrain]


Now we are looking at a cross-section of the forebrain of a frog.

Does this look different from what you saw in all the other forebrains? What is similar? What is different? Compare this with the human forebrain. Or compare with the monkey forebrain. Do you notice any differences in the neocortex? You may notice that there is no neocortex in a frog. What does that mean? Do you remember what the neocortex is and what purpose it serves? Click on the blue button below for a reminder.
