Brain3M is a project aimed at promoting science education and outreach with the use of digital technology. It provides a platform for students to study the brain, its anatomy and functions, and the brain-behavior-cognition relationships. Brain3M includes a web-based interface that runs on laptops and mobile devices, which will be connected to magnetic resonance imaging brain scans and 3D printers for plastic brain models. This platform creates an interactive, technology-rich, learning environment that makes neuroscience more accessible and appealing to students at all levels. The project is funded by the Social Science Research Institute and the Center for Brain, Behavior, and Cognition at the Pennsylvania State University.
