A mid-sagittal plane divides the body and brain into left and right halves; sagittal sections in general are parallel to this median plane, moving along the medial-lateral dimension(see the image above).The term sagittal refers etymologically to the median suture between the right and left parietal bones of the cranium, known classically as sagittal suture, because it looks roughly like an arrow by its confluence with other sutures (sagitta; arrow in Latin).
The nematode Caenorhabditis elegans has been studied because of its importance in genetics.
In the early 1970s, Sydney Brenner chose it as a model system for studying the way that genes control development, including neuronal development.

Neuroanatomy is the study of the anatomy and stereotyped organization of nervous systems.
The delineation of distinct structures and regions of the nervous system has been critical in investigating how it works.
For example, much of what neuroscientists have learned comes from observing how damage or "lesions" to specific brain areas affects behavior or other neural functions.
Herophilus and Erasistratus of Alexandria were perhaps the most influential Greek neuroscientists with their studies involving dissecting the brains.
For several hundred years afterward, with the cultural taboo of dissection, no major progress occurred in neuroscience.
