In recent years, the efforts to apply developments in medical informatics within training contexts have increased. The objective of this paper is to illustrate the benefits associated to the use of three-dimensional visualization digital systems, in a neuroanatomical training context, and evaluate the satisfaction level and perceived usefulness of these tools by students. The three-dimensional models generated allowed the anatomical interactive study of brain structures and their spatial relationships in a complete, realistic and visually appealing manner for students, regardless of previous visuo-spatial skills.
