During the 2021 edition of the Brain Olympiad, this Saturday January 30, there will be a live practical on brain anatomy hosted by the people from Stichting Brein in Beeld. During this practical you will learn a lot of things on the spot about the brain and it’s structures by using a calf brain as reference.
In Round 2 of the Brain Olympiad questions will be asked regarding this practical. Would you like to prepare beforehand? Have a look at the practical manual here.
If you réally want to take this seriously, go to a local butcher shop beforehand, pick up a calf brain yourself, and cut it live alongside the anatomist from Brein in Beeld! A calf brain often costs only a few euros. Are you in? Make sure to also have a cutting board and a sharp knife ready to go.
