Brains Anyone? Perhaps a Spinal Cord?

***WARNING*** This post is not for the faint hearted.

My EXSC 470 (functional neuroanatomy) class is probably the coolest class offered at BYU. So far we have scalped two cadavers, used a bone saw to remove the craniums, removed the brain, and even taken out the entire spinal cord (still attached to the brain.) Plus, the eyeballs are still attached to the brain via the optic nerve. Now we get to study them! Woo hoo. There is nothing quite like holding a brain with eyeballs and a spinal cord in your hands. The rest of the semester should be pretty fun.
