The Pixelated Brain is a free, self-study tutorial designed to assist medical students taking courses in:             NEUROANATOMY               NEUROSCIENCE

The material is covered in 14 modules, assembled in a manual; each is appropriate for a two hour laboratory session in a medical school Neuro-anatomy or Neuroscience course.

A site map provides an overall view
of the course and offers one way of navigating easily through the material.


   You are looking at the new, "IPad friendly", version of the Pixelated Brain. The transition from the older version has been a little rocky and you may find a few broken links here and there.
    We welcome feedback, and to encourage it we are placing"Comment" links at the bottom of most pages.
