The purchased version of the app has a few glitches and several sections do not display the diagram of the brain structure. Hoping this will be fixed soon so we can continue to enjoy this easy to use and informative app

As good as it gets on a small screen

I'm using it to prepare for an exam. Definitely a great asset for a student! Thanks!!

The neuroanatomy teacher I have been always waiting for!

Wonderful app that not only provides a beautiful picture of brain structures that is rotatable but that also provides a synopsis of function and what happens when there are deficits in the area. Provides links to notable pubmed articles. Makes neuroanatomy soooo much easier to visualize! I love this app!
