I’ve been building this model of the nervous system for several months. I have no neurology background and am doing this to learn neuroanatomy myself, because I can’t remember things ever. Here is an earlier demo, to start: http://i.imgur.com/WE9icah.gif
And here is a clip from last week:
The cortex mesh I am currently using is derived from the Brain for Blender project (Creative Commons SA 3.0), which in turn is based on the Desikan-Killiany-Tourville atlas devised by the Mindboggle people. I’ve also been using the Albany Medical College Virtual Brain software extensively for 3D reference, so a shoutout to those peeps too.
Ultimately I hope to release this as a free desktop VR (testing on a Rift), mobile VR (testing on a Gear VR, aiming for Daydream), and non-VR mobile experience, catered to a general audience that knows next to nothing about neurology. To raise awareness and promote basic neuroliteracy.
It would also be good to create a version for students, if I can find neurologists interested in collaborating to fact-check everything. First I have to learn ZBrush and re-sculpt all the lobes and their meticulous gyri and sulci first, though.
I am currently looking for a programmer, if anyone is interested. Finally, I’d like to plug my VR education subreddit, /r/learnVRdev.
