Alzheimer’s Association – Brain Tour

Tuesday, November 3rd, 2009 by | Filed Under: Cool Sites

Are you ready to go on a tour of your brain?

This site provides an amazing slideshow of how your brain works and then how
Alzheimer’s disease affects it.

There are seventeen slides in all. The first seven show how your brain works. I wish I had found those slides earlier so that I could have used them to study for my first psychology exam where we learned how the brain functions. I particularly liked the neuron forest; it’s such a great example of how neurons connect!

The next nine slides show you how Alzheimer’s changes the whole brain. They take you step by step through each part of the brain, and show the full scale of the damage that the disease does to the brain.

The seventeenth slide is the Act slide. Basically they’re trying to get five million people registered in the fight against Alzheimer’s. They’re not asking for money, they’re just asking you to step up and be counted as someone who wants to fight against this awful disease. When I was there they already had over a million champions.

The last slide is the credits/links slide. There you can find links that will take you to more sites where you can get information about Alzheimer’s, as well as, some interactive brain maps, and a whole brain atlas.

Alzheimer’s disease scares me, and I hope I never have to face it, but being educated on the subject helps take some of that fear away.
