How to use this brain model
Put the cursor on the brain, click and hold the mouse, and move it a bit; let go; hold it down again, and move it some more. You can turn it around, look at the bottom, the top or from any angle. You’ll get the hang of it.
Use the zoom feature of your mouse to go straight in or make the brain really small. For Macintosh computers, a swipe up or down the middle of the mouse will zoom in and out. For PC computers, use the scroll wheel.
Most brain regions have an arrowhead to the left of the text. If you click on the arrowhead you will see more subregions. If you un-check the box next to a brain region, it disappears!
The Ventral Tegmental Area is always highlighted in green. If you click on the text “Ventral_Tegmental_Area” it will turn yellow.
This brain model is not complete. There are important parts missing, like the ventricles, septum, internal capsule and hypothalamic areas. There are no subnuclei of the thalamus or brainstem. There are no layers of the cortex or hippocampus. But we’re working on it!
We focused on parts of the brain important for romantic love and attachment.
