Caption

Tongue anatomy. Nerves are white, arteries are red and veins are blue. Filiform papillae, which sense pressure, cover most of the surface of the tongue. Also seen is a rounder fungiform papilla (top centre), which contains tastebuds. This anatomical artwork is plate 15 from volume 5 (1839) of 'Traite complet de l'anatomie de l'homme' (1831-1854). This 8-volume anatomy atlas was produced by the French physician and anatomist Jean-Baptiste Marc Bourgery (1797-1849). The illustrations were by Nicolas-Henri Jacob (1781-1871).
