A Map of the Brain

In the TED Talk below Allan Jones explains and shows how he and his team are creating a map of the brain. This is a great talk for biology teachers, biology students, and anyone else interested in learning a bit more about how the parts of our brains work together. One word of caution, as always, if you think you might show this in your classroom preview it ahead of time because there are a couple of images that might not be for the faint of heart.



The talk above pairs nicely with Jill Bolte Taylor's TED Talk, How It Feels to Have a Stroke.


A couple of related items that you might go nicely with this talk are BioDigital Human and Healthline Body Maps.
