Brainstem video

Having trouble learning brain anatomy? This tutorial by Pinky and the Brain could help:




And here are the lyrics:

Neocortex, frontal lobe...
Brainstem! Brainstem!
Hippocampus, neural node,
Right hemisphere.

Pons and cortex visual...
Brainstem! Brainstem!
Sylvian fissure, pineal,
Left hemisphere.

Cerebellum left!
Cerebellum right!
Synapse, hypothalamus,
Striatum, dendrite.

Axon fibers, matter gray...
Brainstem! Brainstem!
Central tegmental pathway,
Temporal lobe.

White core matter, forebrain, skull...
Brainstem! Brainstem!
Central fissure, cord spinal,
Parietal.

Pia mater!
Meningeal vein!
Medulla oblongata and lobe limbic,
Microelectrodes...
The brain!

Next time we get together, I want to hear you go through that entire song. I'll do the "brain stem, brain stem" part.

Brad! That's an absolute cut up! *LOL* Too cute! Thanks for sharing it! I could have used that last year when I had anatomy ... ;o)

Hope you're enjoying school!

Our anatomy tutor showed us this 2 weeks ago to give us a light-hearted look at neuroanatomy...wish it was all that fun though :P

Little did I realize back in the mid 1990's that this little song would enjoy such an enduring afterlife as a medical teaching tool. Such things are among life's more pleasant surprises.
