These web sites complement the printed Lab Manual, providing color images and supplemental additional information:
Use Canine Brain Transections
to study internal brain anatomy. Use Levels
to locate sections rostro-caudally; use the Atlas
component to identify internal brain structures.
Use Canine Brain Sections Tutor
to self-study internal brain anatomy. Labeled structures and random-order terms are linked by color match. At any time, you may view: a preliminary vs advanced term-set, a glossary of term descriptions, the brain image only, or lines connecting all structures and terms. The web app includes a Quiz Mode.
Also, you may find it useful to view Canine Brain Atlas
, which presents twelve transverse sections featuring labels that can be toggled on/off and a glossary/index.
Neurobiology Concepts (optional content).
Use Neurobiology Concepts Checker
to self-assess your knowledge of neurobiology concepts throughout the course. A version of the courseware designed for smart phones is also available: mobile Neurobiology Concepts Checker
The web site Spinal Cord - Discussion Questions
presents questions related to the spinal cord, particularly for group discussion: Select a question at random and attempt to achieve a consensus answer; then, compare that answer to an instructor's answer.
Neurohistology (review content).
Use Neurohistology ATLAS
to view images of neurons, glia, CNS, PNS, and meninges.
