Comparative Brain Anatomy Frog and Dog

These 2 models are viewed from a similar direction and components have similar colour codings (the comparative sizes are not to scale).


  1. Both brains have a large region devoted to smell (olfactory bulb).
  2. Mammalian (dog) telencephalon (cortex) has grown over the the midbrain, visible in the amphibian (frog).
  3. The dog brain (mammalian) has, compared to other brain components, a larger telencephalon (cortex) and cerebellum than the frog brain (amphibian).
