New York/Stuttgart – The Complete Human Brain is an innovative iPad app recently published by Thieme. Building on Dr. Wieslaw Nowinski's pioneering digital atlas, The Human Brain in 1969 Pieces, this sophisticated 3-D app has a simple touchscreen interface that facilitates the learning of neuroanatomy by allowing clinicians, educators, students, and researchers to explore a fully segmented and labeled virtual brain from every angle, including axial, coronal, and sagittal MR planes. Users can easily add, remove, or overlap brain structures, and the self-testing feature helps them quickly find out how much they've learned.

Praise for The Human Brain in 1969 Pieces:

“I have been teaching the Human Nervous System for the past 15 years. Professor Nowinski’s Brain Atlas is by far the finest I have ever seen. It is unmatched in its accuracy and its level. It is ideal for multiple approaches to learning neuroanatomy, from self-study to organized classroom activities. It is in all respects wonderful.” – David Lopes Cardozo, MD, Harvard University
