Caption: William Harvey (1578-1657), English physician and surgeon. Montage of images of the life and work of Harvey, the first person to accurately determine how the heart circulated blood through human and animal bodies. He was also the first to propose the theory that humans and other mammals reproduced when an egg was fertilized by sperm. His work 'Exercitatio Anatomica de Motu Cordis et Sanguinis in Animalibus' (On the motion of the heart and blood in animals), published in 1628, remains a milestone in anatomy and medicine.
