3D Printing Brains

Click on the above image to open the photo gallery.

I used the Maker Hub 3D printers to print out a 1:1 scale model of my own brain after getting an MRI this past summer. Additionally, I printed the brains of about 26 participants in a neuroimaging study I was a research assistant for during Summer 2018. 3D printing helped facilitate my research by providing our 9-13 year old participants with scale models or their individual brains, both providing them with a physical reminder of the study and allowing them to feel involved.
