Somehow I highly doubt that they would let you dissect a real human head due to legal issues.

we did an autopsy on a human-- not much blood or squirting but plenty of blubbing festering flesh-- enjoy!

You don't 'enjoy' autopsies. It's a once in a lifetime event I'd prefer not to do again.

The issue with human specimens are that privacy issues, dealing with the specimen's family prohibiting such encounters, possibility of encountering a specimen you know, and health and regulation issues, prevent this sort of thing happening. I dunno what policy they run there but as a nurse we weren't allow to view specimens in hospital morgues and it was only through special circumstances that a 'fortunate' few of us got to view an autopsy. Students are usually prepared for such encounters before they are permitted to do so.
