Brain Museum

Brain Museum Dedicated to education about the structure and function of the human brain. Using a diverse collection of human brain specimens organized in engaging exhibits, the museum provides a rich learning experience to help understand and appreciate our brain.
(4)

The museum was created in 1994 by Dr. Harold Brody, Phd, MD, long-time chair of the Department of Anatomical Sciences. Influenced by his sabbatical at the University of Copenhagen School of Medicine, it was his dream to provide a place where all could view the beauty and awesome nature of the human brain. The museum is dedicated to the study of the human brain. By exhibiting specimens of the brain, it provides a learning experience for of those interested in understanding the brain. The museum serves as a resource for the students, faculty, and staff at UB and equally for the Buffalo community schools and public as well as visitors to our historic city. The museum has on exhibit 90 specimens of human brains, models, x-rays, CT, MRI, and PET images. The museum greatly acknowledges the body donation program and the many individuals who graciously donated their bodies to the school. Admission to the museum is free of charge. The museum is made possible by the contributions of medical alumni and private donations through the museum endowment funds. Donations are accepted the University at Buffalo Foundation. http://www.smbs.buffalo.edu/path/ cal_endow_brody.htm Please email or phone for questions regarding directions or parking.

Scientists, funded in part by the BRAIN Initiative, have created the highest-resolution human brain and mouse brain 'parts lists' to date. They discovered crucial differences in human and mice brain cells that could explain why many drugs that work in the lab don’t work in us. Their findings could lay the groundwork for better treatments for neurological and psychiatric disorders.

The blue arrow is demonstrating the supralateral cerebellar approach used for microvascular decompression for Trigeminal Neuralgia and Hemifacial Spasm while the green arrow is demonstrating the infralateral cerebellar or infrafloccular approach – anyone know which neurosurgical condition this surgical corridor is used to treat?

So cute you could crush it? The neuroscience of “cute aggression”

“The Yale researchers initially found that people reported feeling cute aggression more in response to baby animals versus adult animals,” Stavropoulos said. “But even beyond that, people reported feeling cute aggression more in response to picture of human babies that had been digitally enhanced to appear more infantile, and therefore ‘more cute,’ by enlarging features like their eyes, cheeks, and foreheads.”
