Dr. Claudia Krebs, a professor of anatomy in UBC’s faculty of medicine, believes the augmented reality of HoloLens will help establish a greater understanding to those students examining the architecture of the brain. “We’re very excited to be introducing the world of mixed reality into the classroom,” she said in a release.
Parker Holman, a PhD candidate in neuroscience at UBC, is hopeful the new technology could change the way neuroanatomy lessons are taught in the classroom.
“The first time I put on the HoloLens and saw the holographic brain, I was blown away,” he said. “It just shows you things that aren’t possible with the models or specimens that we have.”
