Q: Are the arteries on this models raised?
A: The arteries are not raised. They are actually painted directly onto the model.
Q: I am in need of a life size brain. Is this model life size?
A: Yes, this model is considered life size. The dimensions are 6 x 5.5 x 5.5 inches.
Q: Does this model come with a warranty?
A: Yes, like all Axis Scientific products, this model has a 1-year warranty.
Q: What comes with the model?
A: In addition to the brain model, you will also receive a sturdy, white base to cradle the model when not in use. You will also receive a full-color, comprehensive product guide that details 41 separate anatomical features.
Q: Is assembly required?
A: Upon opening the box, the brain will already be assembled, however, you will need to remove protective materials separating each part of the brain prior to use. Taking it apart for the first time is quite easy, and assembly gets easier with practice (and is even easier thanks to the magnets that hold it together). Most users report assembly taking less than 1 minute.
Q: Does this model display the Amygdala?
A: The Amygdala is not specifically labeled on this model, but it can be observed for its location. The Hippocampus is labeled on the model to help finding the Amygdala location easier.
