Human brain, lateral view

This is a real human brain fixed in formadehide. We use it for teaching in the University. Dura was removed for a better visualization of brain circunvolutions. The human brain contains about 100 billion neurons, each making about 1000 synaptic connections with. other neurons. I guess these connections are either absent or non-functional in many cases.
