CEYE Lesson

SNOP volunteers joined 7th and 8th graders of the Center for Excellence in Youth Education (CEYE) program at Mount Sinai on November 4, 2013. After teaching the basic anatomical structures and corresponding functions of the brain, our volunteers led students in sheep brain dissections, in which they guided students in making sagittal and coronal cuts.
