This is a DVD in which the late Lennart Heimer provides clear and helpful illustrations of different brain systems. Heimer’s dissection and narration demonstrate the expert knowledge and dexterous abilities of one of the field’s great neuroanatomists. The program is divided into sections of 5-20 minutes each, and navigation menus are clear and effective. The well-crafted tutorial is provided for students to explore brain structure and organization. This DVD provides a unique addition to the repertoire of resources for teaching neuroanatomy at the undergraduate level.
