ABSTRACT This paper presents a series of dissections created using the Klinger method. This method allows the dissection of white matter tracts in the central nervous system showing fiber orientation, three-dimensional relationships between grey and white matter components, and connections between distant neural centers. In addition, the use of the Klinger method increases the didactic value of conventional dissection techniques and allows students to visualize structural and functional relationships in an easy way.
