I'm curious if anyone used my brain for some interesting artistic projects or printed the thing. Please let me know! :)

Advanced Alzheimer's, thx (it's my own brain:)!

I made a mesh model with BrainVoyager, which is an imaging software package for neuroscientists. The mesh is  based on the grey/white matter boundary, therefore the sulci look a bit atrophied. At the moment I am looking for a more accurate (and better looking:) way to model my brain (including cerebellum and brainstem).

By the way, I used netfabb and meshlab to edit the model.

Anyone printing this model, I am curious with the result! I can always use a spare-one:)

The human with this brain is in trouble...advanced Alzheimer's I'm guessing.  I still want to print it :) Thanks!

So what's the source model format for this - do MRIs pump out something custom or did it come from a 3D modelling package?
