Atlas, C1. Rattus norvegicus, then and nowYour model is disabled. For more details go to Edit properties3D Model
In 2013 I made an anatomical 3d model of Rattus norvegicus, the brown rat, commonly used as lab animal. The model is still one of the most complete anatomical rat models known, but in the 7 years after finishing this model I became a lot better in what I do. To show you how much, I redid the C1, the atlas, the first vertebra of the spine.
I annotated the current C1, because a vertebra is much more than just part of the spine, it has a lot of distinct features of its own. If you want to see the annotations, just click “show annotations” at the bottom of the model window.
I want to redo the complete model and put it in a dedicated website so, that everybody can learn the gross anatomy of Rattus norvegicus in a way that doesn’t need actual specimens.
But for that I need funding. If you are a decision maker at a university or know a fund that can support this, I would love to get in touch!
