This web exhibit was first built in 2000 by Patricia Anne Kinser, Haverford College, under the direction of Paul Grobstein, Bryn Mawr College. The updated version of Comparative Neuroanatomy and Intelligence is now online at http://serendip.brynmawr.edu/exchange/brains. This old version has been archived in place, and will continue to be available for teachers and students who are using it.

The Neuron- Up Close and Personal
The picture above shows the mid-sagittal view of a human, monkey, and cat brain. Essentially we have cut straight down the middle of the brains, separating them two halves. Can you visualize that? If you need a reminder of directional terminology, click here.
Now you have the option of slicing each individual brain again. The blue lines represent where we can slice- either in the forebrain or the hindbrain. You may choose whichever brain you're most interested in by clicking on the picture or on one of the buttons below.
