As with the cerebellum photomicrographs, these magnifications of slides of the hindbrain all look quite similar to each other. When we looked at brains on a large scale we did notice some differences in gross structure. Yet, now that we have magnified them to a great degree, the differentiation between animals seems to blur. Do you notice how similar all the neurons of the animals are?

I want to learn more about neurons!!!

Huh? Can we start over?
