Brain Dissection || Always on My Mind

How does your brain work? Learn how to dissect a brain in this video, which also covers its external and internal anatomy and physiology. In this simple dissection of a brain, you’ll learn various parts of its physiology, the functions of various components, and what a cross-section of the brain looks like.

The brain is the most complex organ of the human body. They coordinate information to and from every part of the body. How do they do it? Their various parts and how they work are fascinating to learn about! In this video, you’ll learn general information about the brain, which will be tied into its anatomical structures.

This dissection lab is for anyone who is curious about brain anatomy, wants to cover brain anatomy for a course, missed the heart dissection during biology class, or just wondered, “How does my brain work?”. The video will teach you how to dissect a brain step by step, and review the external and internal anatomy of the brain.

In this video, we’ll cover the following structures:

Neurons (discussed) Temporal lobe

Synapses (discussed) Frontal lobe

Dura mater Parietal lobe

Meninges Occipital lobe

Brainstem Central sulcus

Spinal cord Left + Right hemispheres

Medulla Corpus callosum

Pons Lateral ventricle

Midbrain Thalamus

Cerebellum Pineal gland

Optic nerves Hypothalamus

Olfactory bulbs Grey matter

Gyri White matter
