Corrosion cast of cerebral ventricles
Daryl Nye (b.1939, d.2013)
Corrosion cast of the third and fourth ventricles of the brain. This specimen was made at the University of Melbourne in 1967, by Dr Daryl Nye (1939-2013). Nye was a neurosurgeon associated with the Anatomy Department in the 1960s. During this time Nye published several papers on the vascular anatomy of the human liver. Corrosion casts are made by injecting a liquid resin into the internal cavities of an organ and then destroying the tissue after the resin has set.
