Jelly brain mould used in court


A touch of the Hannibal Lectors in this presentation. This jelly (Jell-O) model of a brain used a mould from the Anatomical Chart Company.

He writes ‘Purchase of a human brain is illegal’ – so you have to make do with what you’ve got.

Here’s a medical modelling site.

This is a lexBlog, set up and run for a law firm. There is an interview in the new with Kevin O’Keeffe, who owns lexBlog, and he mentions some interesting legal blogs. Another is Arnie Herz’s legal sanity, which has some very interesting reports on finds on the Web.
