An update of the 2012 edition, version 2.0 of The Human Brain in 1969 Pieces by Dr Nowinski retains all of the interactive capability and details of the first version with the addition of new content in the head muscles and glands module as well as the vertebrae module. Previously available cranial nerve and vasculature subject matter has been revised and extended, and enhanced content has been included in the ventricular, deep gray structures, white matter, and visual system modules. There are 12 total 3-dimensional (3-D) modules that can be viewed interchangeably in axial, coronal, or sagittal images. An interactive labeling feature is a new addition in this version.

When the program is first launched, the viewer has the option to view individualized information about the various 3-D atlases in The Human Brain collection by Thieme. Once the user selects the Start option, the default screen for the atlas features a 3-D model of the head and neck surrounded by tools allowing navigation between and selection from 12 modules: central nervous system, arterial system, venous system, tracts, white matter, ventricles, deep nuclei, cranial nerves, visual system, muscles, glands, and head/neck. Each module has options to show or hide right- and left-sided structures along with further structures available for demonstration specific to the selected module. In the arterial system module, for example, the user can choose whether to show or hide the internal carotid and/or vertebral arteries along with their major branches. In the muscles module, subsections include extraocular, facial, and masticatory muscles. Having the ability to highlight such detailed, individualized structures allows users to customize their learning experiences with color-coordination and interactive labels.

Although this atlas is designed to run smoothly on both PC and Macintosh computers, the newest Apple operating system (OSX Yosemite, Cupertino, California) is not supported by the program. Regardless of the computer system used, the CD is necessary to start the program each time even after installation takes place. PC minimum requirements are: 2 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo or higher; 1 GB RAM or greater; graphics card that supports OpenGL 2.1 (recommended, not mandatory) and with at least 512 MB of video memory; 150 MB hard disk space; screen resolution 1280 × 1024 or higher (recommended) and 1280 × 720 (minimum); Windows XP Service Pack 2 or later, or Windows 7 or Windows 8 (English version is recommended). Mac minimum requirements are: iMac with x86_64 architecture (Core 2 Duo, Core i3, Core i5, Core i7); 1 GB RAM or greater; Mac OS 10.6 and above; graphics card that supports OpenGL 2.1 and with at least 512 MB of video memory; 150 MB hard disk space; screen resolution 1280 × 1024 or higher (recommended) and 1280 × 720 pixels (minimum). Depending on the capabilities of the computer system used, the atlas can at times be somewhat bulky in that there can be a delay in the rotation of the 3-D model, and selection/deselection of various modules does not always result in an immediate change to the model. Nevertheless, the rotation features enable the user to have precise control of the angle and orientation of the model, allowing a detailed understanding of the location of structures of interest in relation to surrounding anatomy.

In summary, version 2.0 of The Human Brain in 1969 Pieces by Dr Nowinski is a user-friendly, detailed, and highly organized 3-D neuroanatomy atlas, making it a valuable resource for students and teachers alike.
