Spinal anatomy, 14th century artwork. The spinal cord is shown running down the back, with eighteen spinal nerves braching off through holes in the vertebrae (spinal bones) to reach the rest of the body. The artwork is from Anathomia (1345), by the Italian anatomist Guido da Vigevano. The brain and spinal anatomy drawings in this manuscript are considered the first accurate human neuroanatomical drawings.
