Brain & Skull Models
Formerly available as part of the Brain Trunk, these models can be found at www.smm.org/sciencehouse or from other resources listed below.
Budget Brain and Skull
These basic reference items are packed together. The skull shows the cranial sutures and features an attached, spring-loaded jaw with three removable teeth. The brain has eight separate pieces and, when disassembled, shows the interior structure. It works best to start disassembly with the base of the brain.
The original source for the Budget Brain is no longer available. Brain models can be found at the following websites:
Skull from: UCSD Bookstore phone #: 858-534-3149
Jello Brain Mold
Instructions and a recipe for creating a cast of a human brain are included in the three-ring binder. Jello brain mold from www.egeneralmedical.com Catalog #AC21013
Cat and Rabbit Brain Molds (formerly given out during BrainU)
Students may compare the relative volumes of the brains devoted to different functions. Since the molds are covered with thinned coating of water-soluble glue to prevent powdering, do not allow them to get wet.
Human Brain: Build Your Own Model
This out-of-print book and kit included a 12-piece model of the human brain with assembly instructions, along with facts about the brain, experiments, and activities that focus on sensory functions, all keyed to the model.
