Section through a human head. Computer coloured axial slice through the healthy human head of a male, showing brain and eyes. This is part of the Visible Human Project. The face is at top, with the nose & eyeballs (green) seen. The nasal cavity is visible between the eyes. Optic nerves (light pink) lead from the eyeballs and crossover in the brain. Two hemispheres of the cerebrum of the brain are highly folded, showing white (coloured pink) and grey (dark blue) matter. The cerebrum is where higher thought processes occur. The Visible Human Project is a US project to archive both a male and female body. Each body is scanned and sectioned, for medical research and education.
