The information could be used during a neuro lecture to keep the attention of students. "Pinky" highlights different areas of the brain in a short, comical fashion. It is cute.

This animation is a quick and dirty listing of the brain components through a song performed by Pinky and The Brain cartoon characters. While the video is a bit humorous, it does not present a lot of material besides listing and identifying brain parts, although it is accurate in providing that content.

Technical Remarks:

It could be a fun way to start talking about brain structures and would definitely get students' attention.
