Well paced, but poor diagram
By Matthieu M. on 19. January 2019 for Dura Mater, Arachnoid Mater and Pia Mater

The organisation of the layers of the meninges and outer regions of the cranium were well put together, but the diagram regarding in the infoldings (falx cerebrum...etc) was poor. I could find way better diagrams with a simple search onto google
