Lab 2: Midsagittal view Sheep Brain Dissection: To look at the internal features of the brain today, we will be making a midsaggital cut  on one of your group’s sheep brains.  The midsaggital cut will divide the brain into left  and right halves between the cerebral hemispheres.  When making the cut, one clean  slice is preferable to a sawing cut.  Sawing the brain in half could cause more damage  to the tissue, making identifying structures more difficult.  The resulting views of the  brain can be seen on pages 21 and 22 of your lab manual.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
