Item Description  Picture
 Brain with Arteries  This medially-divided deluxe brain model shows the brain arteries. Delivered on a removable base. Both halves can be disassembled into: Frontal with parietal lobes, Temporal with occipital lobes, Half of brain stem, Half of cerebellum.  
 Giant Ear Model  This model shows all major structures related to hearing and balance. Dissects into 3 parts.  
 Giant Eye Model Dissects into vitreous humor, retina (anterior and posterior portions) and outer eye (2 parts).  
 Giant Functional Brain  The twice life-sized model calls attention to the emotional, sexual, memory, and learning functions of the limbic systems. Sensory regions are highlighted, plus sensory centers of the somatosensory cortex receptive to more than 20 specific body regions. More than 120 hand-numbered features are identified in the accompanying key.  
 Sheep Brain Dissected with external and internal views exposed. Two median sagittal sections and 2 transverse sections.  
 Neuron Model  Schematic representation of the nerve cell and axon with medullary sheath and Schwann’s sheath.
