Brain slices. Gloved hands hold a microscope slide of a section through a human brain above an assortment of other brain sections on a lightbox. The slide being held up and the lower row of slides are coronal slices through the frontal region of the cerebrum. The cerebrum is the part of the brain involved with conscious thought and sensory processing. The other two rows of slides are sections through the cerebellum, which coordinates movement and balance. By examining brain slices under a microscope the health of the brain can be determined.
