Human Brain Models
Anatomical models of the brain – for teaching, training, demonstration and understanding of the human brain for use in medical, healthcare, and educational settings
The human brain is the central organ (often referred to as the command and control center) of the human nervous system and with the spinal cord comprises the central nervous system (CNS). The main structures of the brain are the cerebrum, the brainstem, and the cerebellum. The brain consists of two hemispheres each with four lobes: the frontal, parietal, temporal and occipital.
The frontal lobe is involved in cognitive functions, such as thought processes, and the control of skeletal muscle voluntary movement. The temporal lobe is involved with memories and emotions. The parietal lobe integrates input from different sensory receptors and is important for spatial orientation and navigation. The occipital lobe is involved with vision. The brainstem, consisting of the medulla oblongata, pons, and midbrain, connects to the spinal cord where the transmission of motor and sensory impulses to and from the brain occur.
