Brain Pro Overview
What is Brain Pro?
Brain Pro - Mac edition (Nova Series) is an app designed for Mac users who are studying anatomy or are medical professionals. It offers a 3-dimensional view of the brain that can be rotated and zoomed in or out. The app also provides standard anatomical views, labeled pins with descriptions, and an index for easy navigation. Sectioned views and integrated layers with adjustable opacity are also available. The app can be customized using the settings button to turn on or off individual pins. Additionally, an interactive quiz is included to test the user's knowledge of the brain.
1. The user can also change the transparency of various elements of the Brain to give phantom views which aid in identifying exact positioning.
2. In this Nova Series the user can manipulate the Brain on screen by rotating it laterally or vertically.
3. Rather than just the standard anatomical views, you can now observe the location of a Brain component from different angles.
4. This can offer the user different comparative or phantom views, for example - the position of the Ventricles within the Cerebrum.
5. The app also allows sectioned views which can be accessed by cutting the brain open with a swipe and the ability to add custom labels.
6. Colored schematics and an interactive quiz to test your knowledge of the Brain are also available.
7. By pressing the index button the user is offered an index of the pins available.
8. By pressing and holding on the Systems icon the user is offered an options window where the opacity of each layer can be controlled.
9. The user can test their knowledge against this interactive quiz.
10. This is a dynamic quiz in that there are not a set list of questions but rather the app randomly selects labelled areas within the app and automatically produces a multi-choice question based around that label.
11. The Brain model is comprised of eight different layers, from the Dura Mater down to the Thalamus.

Junk - a sloppy port of the (not great) iPhone app
This is literaly the iPhone app dumped onto the Windows. It looks as if you're running the software in an iPhone emulator.
I have to imagine they used some software kit to avoid having to actually write a new piece of software. You can tell there's no great effort put into this.
The underlying information and anatomy is good, but the user interface, windows, display, navigation - they all are terrible. Save the money and avoid this port until they actually take the time to write software for a computer.
Really need a trackpad to slice, but it works only spotty for me. Pretty, but mostly just labels. For the brain, it would be nice to have the latest neuroscience information for each of the features. Connecting the various anatomical features that work together would be great. Room for improvement. I hope they do.
Good data, navigation could be greatly improved
The data and the accuracy, resolution and rendering of the layers are great. One of the best I could find.
It could be nice if i could really navigate inside the 3D model at any angle, instead of jumping between fixed views.
Also, I would like to see the pins anchored to the anatomy as I rotate the image, instead of disappearing.
It would be great to see the necessary improvements (right now seems just a basic porting from the iPad to the Windows).
Keep up with the good work.
The opposite of what I wanted
I’m a med student who was looking for a good 3D resource for our neuroscience course. Essential Anatomy doesn’t give you much more than the basics for the brain, so I was hoping BrainPro would be good. Big mistake. It’s horribly difficult to navigate, doesn’t have a moving cross-section feature (that I can find, at least), and it’s all in a window that’s the size of an iphone. Essential Anatomy is fantastic, and I was hoping that this would be EA for the brain, but I’d be better off Google Imaging “Brain”
EDIT: About a month after I wrote my first review, I tried the app again. Maybe it would be more helpful this time? Absolutely not. I can’t emphasize enough how user unfriendly it is. You can’t see any views except the standard ones (superior, inferior, and the side views), and THEY DON’T HAVE ANY ADVANCED STRUCTURES. Want to see the parietal lobe? Great. Want to see where the globose nucleus is? Too bad.
