With so much neuroscience research now informing therapy and treatment options, and an increasingly complicated lexicon to go along with it, a four-dimensional model that explains it in plain sight is the perfect way to better understand it all.
An ideal tool for helping your clients to visualize the complexities of the brain and mental health problems-and a useful refresher for practitioners who may find brain anatomy overwhelming-this color-coded brain puzzle puts it all in perspective, allowing users to deconstruct the major functional areas of the cerebral cortex to see exactly how and where they fit together.
Each section of the brain is a removable piece. All the major cortex areas are represented, in a parietal view-visual, associative, motor, auditory, emotional, sensory association, olfactory, somatosensory, Wernicke's area, areas governing higher mental functions, and the cerebellum.

Fun as well as educational, this hands-on model will help you engage your clients-and brush up on your own knowledge of brain anatomy
