Sylvius 4 Online provides a unique web-based learning environment for exploring and understanding the structure of the human central nervous system. Sylvius features fully annotated surface views of the human brain, as well as interactive tools for dissecting the central nervous system and viewing fully annotated cross-sections of preserved specimens and living subjects imaged by magnetic resonance. Sylvius is more than a conventional atlas. The program also incorporates a Visual Glossary, a comprehensive, visually rich, searchable database of more than 500 neuroanatomical terms that are concisely defined and visualized in photographs, magnetic resonance images, and illustrations from the textbook Neuroscience, making Sylvius a single source for teaching and understanding the organization of the human central nervous system.

PLEASE NOTE: Sylvius access codes may contain either 14 or 16 digits—either type of code will work to grant access.
