I found this app useful when preparing for and throughout an fMRI data analysis module. NeuroSlice is great for teaching you to identify individual anatomical regions in the human brain; including nuclei, tracts in the brain and the spinal chord. Examples include, the hippocampus, Slyvian fissure and Precentral gyrus. It contains 40 MRI scans of human brains to test your recognition of neuroanatomy. Just like in the real practice of (f)MRI you can view the brain from different angles including:
You have a choice in how you learn, either the app will highlight a section of the brain and you name the section from a list of choices. It is not your typical multiple choice questionnaire with 4 options, there are far more! Alternatively, the app will give you the name of an anatomical region and then you as the user has to identify it in the scan by pressing on it. An additional good point is that it can be used offline, so it doesn’t use up your mobile data usage.
