Brain Anatomy

3D Brain 

Use your touch screen to rotate and zoom around the interactive brain structures. Discover how each brain region functions, what happens when it is injured, and how it is involved in mental illness. Each detailed structure comes with information on functions, disorders, brain damage, case studies, and links to modern research.

Brain Maps is an interactive multiresolution next-generation brain atlas that is based on over 20 million megapixels of sub-micron resolution, annotated, scanned images of serial sections of both primate and non-primate brains and that is integrated with a high-speed database for querying and retrieving data about brain structure and function over the internet. Currently featured are complete brain atlas datasets for various species, including Macaca mulatta, Chlorocebus aethiops, Felis catus, Mus musculus, Rattus norvegicus, and Tyto alba.

Digital Anatomist: Interactive Brain Map (University of Washington)

Includes 2-D and 3-D views of the brain from cadaver sections, MRI scans, and computer reconstructions. From the Dept. of Biological Structure and the Integrated Academic Information Management Systems (IAIMS) Program, Univ. of Washington, Seattle.

The Human Brain Atlas (Michigan State University)

Includes both electronic anatomically labeled three-dimensional atlas of the human brain created from MRI images and anatomically labeled stained sections that correspond to the three-dimensional MRI images.

Whole Brain Atlas (Harvard University)

"This is your brain in pictures. The best visual representation of what's inside your head gets even better. How many other sites offer you the top 100 (actually 106) brain structures? Each sub-page here consists of a nifty graphic and plenty of medical terms that, quite frankly, we don't understand. The folks at Harvard also display the visual results of brain ailments like stroke and Alzheimer's -- even Mad Cow Disease. Some section contain accompanying lecture notes and nearly all are geared.

Brainfacts Brainfacts is a website the features all sorts of information about the brain including brain basics, sensing, thinking and behaving, and diseases and disorders. The site is a public information initiative of The Kavli Foundation, the Gatsby Charitable Foundation, and the Society for Neuroscience, all leading global nonprofit organizations working to advance brain research.

G2C This is a great interactive site! You can rotate the brain in several directions and choose aspects of the brain to investigate from the drop down list on the top left of the screen. Each aspect has a description of its function, e.g. case studies, associated function and disorders, research reviews and links.
