I couldn’t resist these exquisite biology class models of brains. The models I photographed here are quite old, and show years of student handling. In the upper photo on the left is a trout brain, on right is a hare brain. In the lower photo, trout on left and pigeon brain on the right. I didn’t note what the center model was, anyone know, or care to hazard a guess?
The models are made by the Denoyer-Geppert Co., and a quick visit to their website shows some excellent anatomy models. I was a bit disappointed that I couldn’t find any fish, amphibian or bird brains listed on their current web catalog.
Hare brain and bird brain, now we have the models to see what they actually look like.
