  • "The HANDY BRAIN MODEL was created to help clinicians and educators show which areas of the brain are activated during various emotional states. Nonprofessional terminology is used as much as possible but may need to be further simplified, depending on the target audience. Because the HANDY BRAIN MODEL turns 2-dimentional drawings on the mitten into a 3-dimentional object, it lacks anatomical accuracy, but shows the connection between structures. More accurate graphics of the brain are included as necessary. Neuroscientists often suggest making a fist to show how the brain cortex wraps around the limbic system. The HANDY BRAIN MODEL does this and much more: The Temporal, frontal, parietal lobe and Occipital lobe are shown on the back of the mitten. The corpus callosum, cingulate gyrus, thalamus, mid brain, brain stem cerebellum, dopamine and serotonin pathways, and parasympathetic cranial nerves are shown on the palm of the mitten. Features of the limbic system (nucleus accumbens, caudate, putamen hippocampus, and amygdala) and insula cortex are shown on the front and back of the thumb"--catalog.
