                           This the work of the MS Society Tissue Bank

About the author



  • Very interesting.
    Can you also show inflamed aerea due to MS?

    And a question: if you are given brain tissue do you also receive MRI data to make precise cuts and investigate the areas affected by infammation?


  • Thanks, a real insight. You can see pictures in books and it's just not quite the same as the privilege of witnessing (on film) a dissection. Hugely educational.

  • Interesting thanks. From what I am learning these are fixed brains and an unfixed brain is much softer. It would be difficult to make slices of an unfixed brain as it would be too soft.

    • Yes a fixed brain you can tell by the colour and also as you say it is harder, slicing an unfixed brain can be done with a sharp knife.
