Spanish sauropod dinosaur braincase & endocast 3D Model
This model accompanies an article published in the open-access journal PLOS ONE on 7 October 2015, describing a new titanosaurian dinosaur braincase from the Cretaceous “Lo Hueco” locality in Spain, with an analysis of its brain endocast structure (http://bit.ly/1j9gljn). The article authors are Fabien Knoll, Lawrence M. Witmer, Ryan C. Ridgely, Francisco Ortega, and Jose Luis Sanz. The specimen, MCCM-HUE-1667, was CT scanned on an Yxlon CT Compact (Yxlon International, Hamburg, Germany). The original scan data can be downloaded on Dryad: http://bit.ly/1VGGvq9. 3D modeling of the braincase and endocast was done by Ryan Ridgely. The background image shows the field locality where the partial skeleton and braincase were collected.
