This brain model is developed in normal size, can be separated into 8 parts and comes with very eye-catching colors in important anatomical areas.

The brain model is cast in hollow and solid plastic, which makes the material flexible because it can both be squeezed quite a bit and moved a bit. This makes the model pleasant to touch and work with when it needs to be taken apart and studied.

Different areas of the brain appear in different colors. Below you can read more about the anatomical details such as the colored areas and the limbic system. The 8 parts are held together via small metal pins. The size of the model corresponds to the brain of an adult person. The dimensions are 14 x 14 x 17.5 cm. The weight is approximately 850 grams and it comes on a white removable stand.

Important anatomical structures are numbered on the model.

NB: The numbering and naming are indicative. Therefore, be critical in your use, as figures for an anatomical structure may, for example, be located on the border of another structure.

Anatomical features

Anatomically, the model shows the human brain, which can generally be divided into the cerebrum (cerebrum), the cerebellum (cerebellum) and the brain stem (truncus encephali).

These 3 structures are clearly separated via different colors, and the difference between gray and white matter can be clearly seen on this model.

In the cerebrum (telencephalon and diencephalon), the lobes of the brain, as well as the thalamus and hypothalamus (and the pituitary gland) are primarily seen

In the cerebellum, the vermis cerebelli and the cerebellar hemispheres (hemisperium cerebelli) are seen

The brainstem shows its 3 parts (the midbrain, the pons and the medulla oblongata) as well as the apparent origins of the cranial nerves using Roman numerals (also called the cranial nerves)

Other structures such as the brain stem, fornix, ventricular system and the first 2 cranial nerves (the olfactory and optic nerves) are also seen, which do not originate from the brainstem

The pictures on the left show how the model can be separated into 8 parts. This makes it possible to study the internal structures of the brain, and some of these are seen in 3 dimensions.

Colored areas

The colors on this model are strong and eye-catching. As seen in the images on the left, it is not only the lobes of the brain that are colored. Colors are also seen in special areas such as the pre- and postcentral gyrus, Broca's area, Wernicke's area and deeper structures such as the ventricular system.

The many different colors make it easy to identify important anatomical areas. Furthermore, it is useful to refer to the numbering on the model and the corresponding "name list", which can be downloaded and printed next to the product images on the left.

The limbic system

Many of our customers ask about the limbic system in connection with the purchase of brain models. Hence this description.

The limbic system includes various anatomical structures in the central nervous system (CNS), and is primarily responsible for emotional functions such as anxiety, aggressiveness, mood, memory and social adaptability. Clinically, it is therefore often related to psychiatric disorders.

The limbic system includes, among other things amygdala, hippocampus, gyrus parahippocampalis, hypothalamus, fornix, corpus mammillare, the prefrontal cerebral cortex and the monoaminergic systems of the brainstem. The list is quite a bit longer - especially because numerous fiber connections connect the limbic structures. Many customers ask in particular about the amygdala and hippocampus (which is why they are mentioned first in this section).

NB: In this brain model, the hippocampus can be seen as well as some of the other limbic structures such as the fornix - but not the amygdala.

The amygdala is involved in anxiety and emotional coloring of sensory impressions. It lies as an almond-shaped nucleus IN FRONT of the hippocampus in the anterior pole of the temporal lobe (amygdala and hippocampus are therefore separate).

The hippocampus is involved in memory. It lies as an irregular twisted structure in the medial part of the temporal lobe.

If one of these 2 structures is to be seen clearly on a brain model, the brain tissue must be shown in a so-called frontal/coronal section through the temporal lobe. The frontal incision roughly corresponds to the incision direction "from ear to ear".

Because the amygdala lies IN FRONT of the hippocampus (roughly speaking further "toward the forehead"), both of these structures can only be seen on a brain model if the model includes at least 2 frontal sections through the temporal lobe - or if the brain model is partially transparent.

We have not yet seen a brain model that shows 2 cuts through the temporal lobe, so that both the amygdala and the hippocampus are seen. In our range, on the other hand, we have a partially see-through brain model in the highest price range, which shows both structures.

All brain models in our range can be separated into different parts. All models (both with and without educational colors) that can be separated into 4 or more parts show the hippocampus. On almost all of these models, the hippocampus is also numbered and named on an overview that can be downloaded from the product descriptions of the brain models.

Clinical features

Clinically, the model is ideal for understanding the problems (symptoms) and damage caused by lesions in the colored areas of the cerebrum on the model. This can, for example, concern disturbances in movements, sense of touch, language and vision.

The model can also be used to understand many other lesions and disorders such as epilepsy, brain tumours, hydrocephalus, lesions involving cranial nerves and sclerosis (multiple sclerosis).

Although the brain's blood supply is not visible on the model, it can also be used to understand apoplexy (stroke).
