Ratings and Reviews
Very informative, easy to use!
I'm a student learning about the nervous system for Science Olympiad, and let me tell you, this is a fantastic tool for getting to know the brain. It has information about the different parts of the brain and has options for labels. It's also pretty easy to learn how to use. The only issue is that the images are a bit low resolution, but that's not even that bad, and the pro version has better resolution. Overall, awesome learning app.
I have successfully used the app in neuroscience courses as a supplemental aide.
It is very helpful to students.
Today I was informed that an upgrade was available for a .99. Certainly, I selected the upgrade immediately.
I have not spent a great deal of time today with the app. Perhaps I am confusing this app with another resource—IT IS after all, Summer term!
Here is my concern, although the visuals and the 3 D rotations are —as always— excellent- along with showing sub systems in relation to major brain components, all very good, with clear taxonomy-I seem to be missing the brief information on the functions of the varied parts of the brain. Please clarify , am I associating this feature and the information I expected to see with another resource entirely or is there a navigational step that I am missing on the upgrade ?
Thank you kindly!
Where is the back button?
Good app, nice 3D rendering. I think the app UI could be substantially improved by a simple "back" button. Now, once you move to another section (e.g., by following a link) there is no way to quickly get back to the previous one. Instead you have to go to the main screen, and start again from there. And that time adds up quickly.
