The neuroanatomy bell-ringer competition consists of approximately 20 stations where brains, brain slices, or pictures of brains will be presented.
To prepare for the test use this link to materials:
The complete list of structures that you are expected to know can be accessed here.
A lot of short videos about the brain anatomy are here.
How the test will look like?
The brains will have pins stuck in a particular part of the anatomy, and there will be questions at each station that ask for the name of the structure and/or the function of that structure indicated by the pin. Students will have approximately 2 minutes at each station to write down their answers. When time is up, a bell will ring, and each student will move to the next station.
“The whole is more that a sum of the parts.”
