Central Nervous System – Visual Perspectives illustrates the spatial dimension of the human brain and stimulates interaction with the object being studied, something which is not a standard feature of illustrations and atlases. The information from the interactive animation will ease retention and incorporation of knowledge structures as a resource for mental model construction of the human brain and spinal cord. We hope that the use of Central Nervous System: Visual Perspectives will enhance motivation of the students, increase their comprehension of the content, and facilitate learning such a complex structure as the human CNS.
”It is a demanding task to study the anatomy of the human brain. The complexity can be simplified by approaching the study of the brain from the dual perspectives of its spatial and functional anatomy. CNS-Visualperspectives examines the relations between different brain structures and defines major divisions. Functional anatomy describes the role of the structures and points out structures that work together to accomplish particular tasks…”
