Published by the University of Utah, this open-access site provides links to cadaver and MRI images of the central nervous system. It provides surface images as well as a series of transverse and sagittal sections; some images of the skull and circulatory system are also available. Specific anatomic structures are identified with an arrow when users click or put a cursor on the name listed below the image. The site can be used as a tutorial with immediate feedback or as supplemental material for instruction. The content is appropriate for both undergraduate and graduate students studying neuroanatomy.
Type of Material:
Drill and Practice,
Collection of Images,
As supplemental material for lecture/instruction
To provide a tutorial with immediate feedback for independent student learning
Accessible using Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Google Chrome.
There is no audio.
Identify Major Learning Goals:
The learner will accurately identify surface and deep structures of the central nervous system.
The learner will correlate anatomical views of the central nervous system to corresponding MRI images.
Target Student Population:
Upper level undergraduate and graduate students studying neuroanatomy for speech and hearing.
Prerequisite Knowledge or Skills:
- Images are clear and detailed
- Color images of the human specimens provides anatomical images in the absence of a cadaver
- Provides MRI images that correlate with physical anatomical images
- Provides limited labeling for each image presented. Menu organization could be better.
Potential Effectiveness as a Teaching Tool
- Allows for interactive identification of structures with immediate feedback for student self study
- Provides images in a series of both transverse and sagittal planes for understanding the relationship among structures
- Organized in clear groupings of images
- Has active links from photographs and MRI images when available to enhance radiological study interpretation
- Clear images for facilitating student learning and lecture presentation
Menu items could be better organized
Ease of Use for Both Students and Faculty
- Well-organized and intuitive
- Easy to interact with
- Reliable indication of where structure is located
- Clear images
- Able to access main menu easily
- Links to MRI and equivalent cadaver images
Other Issues and Comments:
The quality, potential effectiveness, and ease of use are high.
