The Zygote Solid 3D Male Nervous System includes the highly detailed Brain, Meninges and Spinal cord with nerve schematic throughout the body to the arms and legs. Developed from medical scans, photographs, atlases and published references, this collection includes detail sufficient for intensive modeling in specific regions of the head and back with meninges geometries that can serve as light stand-ins for whole-system modeling.
The Zygote Solid 3D Brain is a very highly-detailed, medically-accurate model of a human brain. Created from MR scan data, the cerebral geometry accurately defines typical cerebral landmark sulci, gyri and ventricles. Also available are Solid 3D models detailing the volumes of the Arachnoid Membrane and the Dura Matter including the Falx Cerebri and Tentorum Cerebelli. The Meninges accurately accommodate the cerebral circulation (licensed separately) including the Superior Sagittal Sinus and the Transverse Sinus. The Trigeminal, Optic, and Nasal Nerves are all correctly represented from scan data. Other cranial nerves have been created using photographic and illustrative reference. The Cerebrum, Cerebellum, and Brain Stem are all one solid part. The Arachnoid Membrane and Dura Matter are each additional separate parts.
The Spinal cord was created by digitizing photographs of cross sections of dissected every inch and interpolating shape transitions from one digitized section to the next. The size, contour, posture and skeletal correlation of the Spinal cord were derived using medical scan data. The encasing Dura mater with offset spacing between Spinal cord and the Dura was developed using offsets observed in medical scan data.
The nerve tract schematic throughout the rest of the body and into the limbs were developed by medical modelers using published reference material including atlases and photographs.
