Presenter: Michael Schenk

Description:
       What is a Prosection? Performing prosections are valuable additions/ contributions to the learning

performing additional time-consuming tasks. Prosections are often used to show basic anatomy but are more
useful depicting specific organs/systems not covered in laboratory sessions. This no stress hands-on workshop
will demonstrate some unique approaches to expose complex structures. Some examples include the fish brain,
frog brain, reproductive systems of the fetal pig, squid cerebral ganglion and reptilian anatomy (turtle and snake)
