Abstract or description

Human Nervous System is one of the basic yet most difficult topics in medical education. With millions of neurons from varied origins, pathways and types regulating different functions, it is the least understood system of human body. Among all the organs, the face has a dense nerve innervations in a compact area making it a challenge for students to gain the required anatomical expertise. The Sense project is an effort made to overcome this challenging task by enabling interactive learning with the help of an intuitive user interface. The ability to learn and test the anatomical knowledge based on a novel three-dimensional head with particle flow animations to visualize nerve impulse propagation makes this application stand out from the conventional and interactive methods of anatomy educa-tion. This paper presents the design and development of this application using the Unity 3D game engine. Possible future improvements for evaluation are also discussed.
