The Human Brain Atlas

In this atlas of the human brain from Michigan State University you can view MRI sections through a living human brain as well as corresponding sections stained for cell bodies or for nerve fibers.
"Differing techniques used to study the anatomy of the human brain all have their advantages and disadvantages. We here present an electronic anatomically labeled three-dimensional atlas of the human brain created from MRI images. In conjunction we present anatomically labeled stained sections that correspond to the three-dimensional MRI images. In this way we utilize the advantages of both methods."
Quick time movies of each section, screensavers and other funstuff are all available on the website.
