plastic ruler, paper towel and gloves. Method: * We placed the brain so that the cerebral hemispheres are at the top of the board and the brain stem is at the bottom. * My group identified the external features of the brain: the cerebral hemispheres, cerebellum and brain stem. * We also used the forceps and tried to lift the meninges (membranes protecting the brain). We then observed the cerebral fluid between these membranes and the hemispheres. * My group carefully observed the...
