Caption: Spine & brain. Computer-enhanced historical art- work of the human spine & brain. The brain is seen at top with it's blue & red cerebral blood vessels. The spine, or backbone is seen emerging from the base of the brain. This is made up of 33 roughly cylindrical bones called vertebrae. As well as supporting the body, the spine protects the spinal cord, which together with the brain make up the central nervous system. 32 pairs of white spinal nerves are seen emerging from the space between the vertebrae. These provide a nervous connection between the brain and the rest of the body. Drawing by the Italian anatomist Paolo Mascagni (1755-1815).
