“If in creating The Human Brain in 1492 Pieces it was Dr. Nowinski’s goal to produce the world’s most advanced human brain atlas, then he has undeniably succeeded. With this incredible software you hold the future in your hands.”—Dr. Anne G. Osborn (praise for an earlier version)


The Human Brain, Head and Neck in 2953 Pieces is a highly sophisticated, visually stunning 3D neuroanatomy atlas. Thieme Publishers is pleased to offer this software completely free of charge.


Innovative and incredibly detailed, yet easy to navigate, this product allows every clinician and educator in neuroradiology, neurosurgery, neurology, and neuroscience to explore and better understand the intricacies of the human brain. Almost 3,000 detailed components identify every area of the brain, head, and neck from the spinal cord to the tiniest vessels. The modular dashboard allows the user to see one structure at a time or in any combination, “turn off” structures, rotate the brain, build structures, decompose them, pan across the brain, see structures as labeled or unlabeled, and much more---all in three dimensions! This is the most in-depth neuroeducational tool currently available and a must-have for anyone who needs to stay on the cutting-edge.


Some of the additional features include:

  • A tool to dissect and manipulate each brain piece
  • Includes fully segmented images of the brain, head, and neck
  • Multiple cutting planes facilitate dissection and exploration
  • A resizable interface that conforms to your screen size
  • Labeling of 3D cuts and triplanar images
  • Every view can be rotated and seen from various angles
  • Enhanced functionality and visual refinements

PLUS--This latest version now includes the bones of the skull and intracranial vessels
