Gross Anatomical Study of a Sheep Brain (Ovisaries)
Abstract: Sheep brains are readily available from scientific vendors as dissection specimens, making them a popular choice in neuroanatomy classes, where the ultimate goal is to learn about the human brain. This is possible because the sheep brain and human brain are very similar. However, there are some key differences that should be kept in mind during dissection. The sheep brain and human brain are very similar in overall structure, as are all mammalian brains. Each contains a cerebrum, cerebellum, and brain stem. The purpose of the grossanatomical study of sheep brain is to familiarize with the three dimensional structure of the brain and teach one of the great methods of studying the brain looking at its structure. This present study emphasize on the sheep brain, observation and evolution indicate that there are many similarities between the sheep brain and the human brain. Even the differences are instructive and help us to learn about the brain. Being able to locate important structures in the sheep brain will be of great benefit in understanding how structures are related to each other in the human brain. If the same structure exists in both brains (and most structures are the same), they are in the same relative location.
