Not bad.

I found a bit annoying that You needed the table to access different areas of the brain, but the moment you selected it, the draw would close. All it showed me were some names of each part of the brain, so I'd have to constantly open the draw again to move to the next part. This would be useful for school kids learning science and probably university students too. Not hugely interactive, but quite informative.

Great app

I swear by this app as it helped me ace my psychology exam! ☺️ The detail is very in-depth and the 3D model allows the viewer to understand it a bit more clearly. Thank you to the creators!

Amazing functionality. Best bundle available: it's FREE.

I'd be glad to pay a reasonable price for a more in-depth, expansive database built up from this. Extremely easy to use. Diagrams are easy to understand & to orient as you prefer.

I don't know who rated the "1 star" but it's either non-academically-inclined people who couldn't comprehend basic vocab/grammar in the best-value neuro app so far, or hopeless fools expecting to get their entire Med/Neuro/Psych degree rolled up one FREE app. All the other neuroanatomy apps (esp. $20 ones) could learn a thing or two from this one.
