If you’re like me then you have by no doubt have seen the movie The Water Boy staring Adam Sandler. There is a part in the movie where a professor claims that the medulla oblongata (yes I had to look up how to spell that) is the reason why crocodiles are so “ornery.” I always wondered if that was really true or not and where I might be able to find it on my own brain. Well, some of those answers have been answered. Thanks to 3D Brain. This handy iPhone app gives you the 3D model of the brain and breaks down all the different parts and substructures with some simple explanations. This app is tailored for biology students and middle school students. It also gives references as well which makes it even handier. Give it a try, it’s free and you can find it on iTunes here.
