A Closer Look at the Human Brain

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 part of the image.

Tx for the site! I suffered a stroke and have test and Dr appointment follow-upscoming. This certainly does not make me an expert but I feel more confident that I''ll understand more of what the medical folks are doing. That means alot to me. Thanks again. Chuck (60 Years old, 2 heart attacks, pacemaker, and now a stroke) I'm still here!!!! yippee!
