A virtual reality 3D brain developed by a team from the University of Saskatchewan will help students and surgeons better understand brain function.

“We created this 3D brain where the surgeon can enter the brain, look at a brain tumor, can see the relationship of the brain tumor with other brain structures and potentially plan a surgical procedure,” said Dr Ivar Mendez, the unified head of the Department of Surgery at the University of Saskatchewan and Saskatoon Health Region. “I truly feel that this technology is going to be a way in which all students will be learning new things.”
