Brain putty (Week 3)
This week we all took part in the exercise session, where an anatomical representation of the brain was constructed out of different colors of putty. This was done while going through each part of the brain and their basic functions.
We started from the most primitive parts of the brain, the medulla, pons, cerebellum and the midbrain, respectively.
Then the thalamus and hypothalamus were added, together with the pituitary gland.
Finally, the cerebrum was added.
One of us even managed to make some gyri and sulci.
Our finished pieces of art. Can you guess who made each one?
Lastly, we would like to leave you with an appropriate song: “Parts of the brain”.
