It shows the surgical anatomy of the Spinal dura, lumbar cistern, Cauda equina, Spinal cord, Spinal nerves and spinal arachnoid, with an overview of sciatic nerve also. The specimen was harvested from a cadaver. Real-time dissection of the dural sac is shown, with prior dissection of the vertebral bones by the enthusiastic students. With real-time narration and relevant captions, it enhances the learning experience by means of a trimodal learning style approach - Visual, Auditory, Textual.
