This is a comprehensive dissection guide of the internal sheep brain, designed for a high school or early college Biology or Anatomy & Physiology class. Sheep brains exhibit many of the same features as human brains, and differences are noted in the handout.
The guide includes step-by-step instructions and labeled diagrams that will lead students through the internal anatomy of the sheep brain.
In addition to description of structures, the relevant physiology/function of these structures is included to provide functional relevance to the exercise.
Sheep brains are affordable and are available from commercial scientific supply vendors, including Carolina Biological (www. carolina.com) and Ward's Natural Science (www.wardsci.com).
The free preview is the 3rd of 4 pages of dissection instructions. The purchased Word document can be modified as needed by the instructor.
