Medical Education, Patient Consultation, Medical Illustration
I have this product for my classroom. It can be separated into 2 pieces for detailed study of the huamn brain. With all it's features the price is good. This model with its colorful paint is a great decoration for my desk as well.
While this brain only has 2 parts, it is far from basic. The colorful sections allow me to point out the different areas of the brain and the manual that comes with this model is very helpful in understanding the labeled elements.
The first thing I thought of when I saw this model was that the colors were so cool. I did not think anything like this even existed. Breaking it in half helps show off the different parts that I was able to learn about using the sweet manual that was included.
