Subject

The first scientific depiction of the human brain

Description

English physician Thomas Willis' detailed account of the human, the byproduct of years of his personal research, was the first of its kind. It even coined the term "neurology."

Cerebri Anatome or just The Anatomy of the Brain in English contained minute descriptions of the human brain, down to the tiniest blood vessel, along side beautifully detailed sketches done by none other than the famous Chritopher Wren.
