Corpus Callosum

Instructional tool for comparing two competing schemes of the anatomical subregions of the corpus callosum.  This module requires only a computer.  It is available for free and includes a student tutorial.


The sagittal brain sections used in this module came were found using the MetaSearch feature of Open Neuroimaging Laboratory, an online open-source collection of brain imaging data.

The pedagogical aspects of this module were created by Dr. William Grisham at UCLA and Cary H. Leung at Widener University.

The tutorial was created by Natalie Schottler.  


Corpus Callosum Witelson Scheme



Take the Student Pre-Test

If you are a student and are about to begin the Corpus Callosum module, please take our Pre-Test [NOTE: this will NOT affect your grade].  We are asking you to participate in a study on the efficacy of the teaching module delivered by your instructor.  This study will help us to revise this teaching module to make it more effective and to develop new modules in the future so that they are educationally effective, are easy to understand, and successfully meet student needs.  Not only will your participation help us make better teaching modules, but your participation may also help your understanding of the material (again, this will not figure into your grade).

-->  We ask that you take a short Pre-Test BEFORE the material is presented and also take an identical Post-Test AFTER the module has ended.  These little quizzes will help us gauge your gains from this module.  The quiz can be taken over the web and should take about 10 minutes.  When you take the tests online, please use the SAME, real email address each time, as we will need them for tracking data.

-->  Since we are going to ask you to take the quiz as well as fill out an opinion questionnaire after the unit is completed, we request that you give us your email address so that we can send you one, and ONLY one, reminder email.  We will NOT be sending you any further emails, nor will we submit your email address to any outside sources.  Note: providing you email address is voluntary, as is your participation in this study (see below).

-->  Participation in this study is completely voluntary.  You are not required to participate to receive or use the materials included in this module.

-->  First download the Questions (PDF) then input your answers into the Answer Form (electronic)

Take the Student Post-Test

If you are a student and have completed the Corpus Callosum module, please provide us with your level of scientific knowledge coming out of the module by taking the following Post-Test.  This form will also allow you to provide us with basic feedback on the materials used in this module.


Download Files

Students and Faculty can download the Corpus Callosum image database and tutorial for free.

(01)  Download Corpus Callosum Image Database

In order to access the image database, you must first fill out the User Consent/Download Questionnaire (after which you will be directed to the download button).  Note that you will still be allowed to download the image database even if you choose NOT to consent to anything.

The images in this module were derived from the Open Neuroimaging Laboratory, an online open-source collection of brain imaging data.  The image database is zipped (compressed) here, so be sure to extract the file to access the actual folder.

    For Faculty

    Faculty members interested in accessing faculty-related materials will need to obtain an account.  Please see the Faculty Web Page for more information:

    Faculty members that already have an account may log in and go directly to the Faculty Comparative Neuroanatomy Web Page:
