Sheep brains, although smaller than human brains, have similar features. Due to their similarities, a sheep brain dissection is perfect for anatomy and brain structure studies!

Use a scalpel to dissect a sheep's brain, and see for yourself what the cerebrum, cerebellum, spinal cord, corpus callosum, pituitary gland, pineal gland, longitudinal fissure, sulci, gyri, olfactory bulbs, brain stem, optic nerves, temporal lobe, frontal lobe, parietal lobe, occipital lobe, rhinencephalon lobe, optic chiasma, and other major structures and parts of the brain look like. 

This plain preserved specimen comes with the cranial nerve attached.

Note: Specimens are initially preserved with a formaldehyde solution, the best animal tissue fixative. The formaldehyde is then displaced first with water and finally with a glycol solution to produce a moist, low-fume specimen which will not decay over time.

HST Specimen Guarantee

In sealed, original packaging, our preserved specimens are guaranteed to remain fully preserved and free of decay for six months from the date of purchase.

Once the original package is opened, use specimen within one month. For best results, observe the following storage procedures:

  • Store specimen in heavy-duty, zip-lock bags to minimize drying between dissections.
  • Specimen will slowly dry out or become contaminated in zip-lock bags; add a teaspoon of Specimen Holding Fluid to retain moisture.
  • Freezing or refrigeration is not necessary and may damage fragile tissues.

WarningWARNING: This product can expose you to chemicals including Formaldehyde, which is known to the State of California to cause cancer, and Methanol, which is known to the State of California to cause birth defects or other reproductive harm.
