This week, our Lower Sixth pupils dissected a brain in Psychology. They cut the gelatinous mass in half to replicate the participants in Sperry’s study, which pupils learn about this year. Pupils were surprised at how small a sheep’s brain is but enjoyed the dissection nonetheless.

Meanwhile, in Biology, the pupils undertook a practical this week, dissecting a fish head to obtain a good look at the gills. The pupils didn’t appreciate the smell and felt like a ‘fish out of water.’ However, they did a lovely job exposing the lamellae, which they photographed and drew.
