Neuropsychology Students Dissect Sheep Brain

Sheep brains!

That’s what the Neuropsychology class dissected yesterday, providing a unique opportunity to gain exposure to topics within neuroscience and psychology.

“During the first month of school, students became acquainted with the two major subdivisions of the nervous system and their component parts,” Zoë Stublarec said, who teaches the course. “As a part of this unit, we focus on the anatomy and physiology of the internal/external structures of the human brain.”

The sheep brain dissection was designed to provide students a sensorimotor experience to reinforce the learning.
