The HOPES Brain Tutorial
The HOPES (Huntington's Outreach Project for Education, at Stanford) web site takes people on a guided tour of the human brain. The tour starts with a brief description of brain cells (neurons and glia) and the ventricular system and then explores the different lobes of the brain.
The tutorial gets more detailed in its discussion of the limbic system, basal ganglia and diencephalon. The tour makes it easy to learn this material by allowing users to turn labels on and off and by showing only certain structures in each picture. The ability to add or subtract structures will help you get an idea of the three dimensional structure of the brain.
The brain tutorial is only one section of a larger HOPES web site that discusses the causes, diagnosis and treatment of the neurological disorder called Huntington's disease. Use the buttons on the left side of the brain tutorial screen to visit the main HOPES site. Make sure to read the online illustrated book for kids titled "Bryan's Dad Has Huntington's Disease" (the "For Kids" button).
