The main deep nerve (on the outside of this right leg) is the peroneal nerve. The tendons and ligaments of the knee and lower leg and foot are also seen (grey). The bone seen here is the tibia. At left, the superficial nerves include the cutaneous (skin) nerves. Artwork from The Nerves of the Human Body (Ed. Jones Quain, London, 1839).
