Horizontal Sections of the Adult Male
Top-to-Bottom: Mid-section of skull, section at maxilla [hard palate between sections], section below mandible

Eugène-Louis Doyen was a revolutionary (if flamboyant and controversy-loving) Parisian surgeon who lived between 1859 and 1919.

Long before the Visible Human Project created its 1,871 “slices” of Joseph Paul Jernigan at 1 mm intervals, and created over 65 gigs of anatomical data (and later created 40 gigs of data with a female cadaver), Doyen presented a new way of visualizing the cadaver: longitudinal and horizontal sections, showing exactly how the human anatomy goes together in each area, without the context of seeing the full organs or bones.

Though the full usefulness of these unorthodox sections wasn’t truly appreciated until the advent of tomography in the early 1970s, they were noted to be helpful to early radiologists, and especially to the burgeoning fields of criminal forensics and forensic archaeology.

Peripheral nerves of a mouse embryo

Unlike the brain and spinal cord that are housed in protective bone, peripheral nerves connect regions of the body to the central nervous system like telephone cables. Peripheral nerves relay movement information from the brain to the muscles, for example, or sensory information from the skin to the brain. Remarkably, and also different from the brain and spinal cord, peripheral nerves have a tremendous capacity to regenerate when injured. Severed peripheral nerves grow about 1 mm per day (about an inch per month) until the two severed ends reconnect and innervate a once paralyzed muscle.
