Did you know that there are over 100,000,000 neurons in your brain?  The anatomy and physiology classes are finishing their unit on the brain.  With 6 major sections including the cerebrum, cerebellum, diencephalon, midbrain, pons, and medulla, there is a lot to learn. Students are able to identify the parts of the brain as well as many of the general functions of each section.  They will finish off the unit with a dissection of a sheep brain and comparing that to the models of the human brain.
