Go Deeper Into Physiological Study with Sheep Organs

Sheep brains are the perfect specimen to study mammalian brain structure. A sheep brain is similar to a human brain and the structures are easily identified. Standard formalin sheep brains are shipped in Carosafe®, Carolina's proprietary shipping and holding fluid. Carosafe® is an odorless fluid designed to minimize the unpleasant odor of formaldehyde. Brains are available in pails or in damp-packed, vacuum-sealed bags.

Color Injection: Plain - No color injection.

Prices listed are for 1 specimen. Choose your preference of packaging with 1 per bag, bulk bag or pail.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value Big fan of the bulk ordered sheep brains with dura removed in a pail for the quality and value. I rated the ease of use low because the lid on the pail is a royal nightmare to get on and off. I usually remove and don't reseal until after all dissections are done.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Even the most disinclined kids dive in! For years I’ve taught how the brain works. Students always ask if they can see a real one. They love dissection. Why not dissect something that they will remember for life, something they should know about intimately? The brain! I always believed that seeing the real thing is way better and more relevant for students than seeing pictures. We did this last year and it was a huge impact on the students’ understanding of brain parts and function. Upon an end of the year survey, Most students found this to be among the top 10 highlights of the year. Last year the manual was laminated so the students could follow the dissection procedure with actual pictures. These individual brains include pail where they can be preserved for 2 weeks of study so we can re-examine them for a longer time within our study units of cells and living things. To my surprise, many students who were initially hesitant to get involved or felt repulsed by it were those who were the most involved! I’m seeing future surgeons begin their careers here. Students can easily examine the parts of a real brain similar to a human brain. This fits well with our unit on cells, and distinguishing specialized cells. It also is in alignment with our unit on Classification. The human brain stems (literally) from the reptilian brain, adding other components separates that brain from reptilian to mammalian, and adding even more components such as a huge frontal lobe and cerebral cortex shows the differences between mammalian brains and the human brain.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value my sheep brain dissection lab is the best part of my course in physiological psychology. The sheep brains from Carolina biological are a superb value for this task.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from If you want to dissect sheep brains... Carolina Biologicals sheep brains are excellent for neuroscience outreach projects. I have used them in several outreach projects with people ranging in age from middle school students t adults. Because the sheep brain shares so many gross anatomical features with our own it never fails to captivate people of any age, and inevitably they bring up very interesting questions about their own brains- which are often difficult to answer! The interest of some is mitigated by their being "grossed-out" by the smell, look and feel of the brains- That being said, Carolina's sheep brains are SO MUCH LESS GROSS than other sheep brains I've dissected in the past- meaning people are less focused on being disgusted, and more open to learning something about the brain. In addition, brains with the dura intact are particularly interesting, as most views of the human brain in the media (or indeed any brain!) usually show it with the dura removed. But having the dura removed can save A LOT of time in the dissection, which is useful if you have a big group of middle-school kids working with the brains. In addition, with the dura removed the only tool necessary to dissect the brain is a blunt spatula, which is also useful for young kids. The packaging in bags is very useful if you are going to dissect the brains immediately, and don't want to have a large pail of perfect solution to dispose of- it does contain some formalin so don't pour it down the drain! Also, the pails can be QUITE difficult to open. Overall, I whole-heartedly recommend these brains as a simple and effective tool for teaching basic neuroanatomy.
