From the educational site of Prof. Eric Chudler and from his newsletter here is the “the site of the month” selected by him:

The LUMEN Cross-Section Tutorial web site was created by Dr. John A. McNulty (a professor of Cell Biology, Neurobiology and Anatomy at Loyola University) using images from the Visible Human Project.  The Web site consists of images of slices from the human body from the head to the foot.

Of particular importance to people interested in the brain are the
photographs, magnetic resonance images (MRI) and computed tomography (CT) scans for the head and neck.  To see these images, enter the site and
click on “Head & Neck.”  This will bring you to a page with a photograph
with various lines attached to boxes labeled “Image” – “MRI” – “CT.” When you click on one of the boxes, the right side of your display will
show a cross section (either a photograph, MRI or CT) at the level of the

Each of the cross sections show many numbered lines pointing to various
structures.  If you click on one of the numbers, the name of the structure
will be displayed in the upper left side of your monitor.  Try to guess
the name of the structure before you click on a number!  It’s a fun way to
learn your way around the brain.

Thanks to Prof. ERIC CHUDLER
