I am trying to find 3D model of brains. I am particularly interested in adult-male -brains in Blender-model. I could find such 3D models of brains for sale here but because I am researching I would like to use some open-sourced candidate so anyone could preview things. So does there exist 3D models of brains in Blender?

    $\begingroup$ A side note, for those interested in mouse brain anatomy: you may want to have a look at the Allen Brain Atlas website, particularly to Brain Explorer $\endgroup$

There is a model of an adult, male, real human brain here: http://brainder.org/download/brain-for-blender/

It can be imported into Blender or any other 3D application that can read Wavefront OBJ or Stanford PLY formats.

That one is only 30 which really isn't bad for a model. You will have trouble finding an anatomically correct model for free.

I am curious, is the male brain that much different from the female brain? And do you want just the brain or a whole head with the skeleton and other anatomical features? And if you would like to elaborate, I am curious about what end product you are looking for.

Side note: Autodesk has 'student' license version of software --in case you want to try learning Maya or 3Ds max, the latter has Retopology tools. You can download from here: https://students.autodesk.com/?nd=download_center

ITKsnap is a program you could use to get 3d data from ct or mri scans http://www.itksnap.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php?n=Main.Downloads MRI and CT data can be found here: http://www.osirix-viewer.com/Downloads.html

I know you just wanted a free model, but the above are the steps to get to one at least.

  • $\begingroup$ Academia is mostly against the photo electricity of brains with mammals twitter.com/heoalov/status/274090762524848128 -- just curious: placebo or some other effect with led-tosslink-in-ear? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Err photosensitivity -- still requiring placebo test, easy trials: get cheap toslinks and different intensity light. Can you detect it? Does skin-senses become different after some use or just placebo? I cannot understand if not placebo, how does it work? If LEDs were UV, then D vitamin? Otherwise what is the physiological reaction? I do not know but pretty curious so investigating brains and ears etc $\endgroup$

I think all models are too generic out there. Radiological models you can find in imaios.com's e-Anatomy where the Premium access gives you some RTG, CT and MRI videos which you can combine to form some 3D models. I am working with the visualization of CNS lymphatic vessels here where I would like to create thin membranes to visualize how deep the lymphatic circulation goes.
