Interactive 3D Brain (SK298)

Explore the brain in 3D and other related activities.

In this activity you can explore the features of the human brain and find out about some of the biological changes which are associated with some mental health and neurodevelopmental conditions.

You can interact with a 3D brain model, with the ability to rotate the brain in multiple directions and to zoom in and out. Key features of the brain are highlighted, with labels and descriptions of their functions. There are also short videos and activities which enable you to explore the biology of the brain in more detail.
