Cross-Section of a Human Brain [Museum Week]

Cross-Section of a Human Brain at the Hunterian

SECTION 1″ POSTERIOR TO THE AURICULO-BREGMATIC PLANE.

That’s about as much as information I can give you on the above photo. If anyone wishes to fill me in on more information about this cross-section of a brain, do so in the comments.

The above is from the anatomical collections of the Hunterian Museum, usually hidden away from public in the Anatomy Museum in the  Thompson Building, usually only admissable to students of anatomy for teaching and research. Now worries, there is now a permanent exhibition at the main Hunterian Museum called ‘A Healing Passion: Medicine in Glasgow Past and Present’ which incorporates items from the Anatomy Museum.

More information on the Hunterian Museum and Art Gallery can be found at http://www.hunterian.gla.ac.uk/, as well as its supplementary Facebook Page, Flickr Group, and on Twitter.
This post is a part of Museum Week
