Skull anatomy by Leonardo da Vinci Featured Print

Skull anatomy by Leonardo da Vinci

Skull anatomy by Leonardo da Vinci. Historical artwork and notes on the anatomy of the human skull and teeth, by the Italian artist and scientist Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519). This bisected skull shows the external structure (right), and dissected facial sinuses (left), the air-filled spaces inside the bones of the face. The diagram at lower left shows the teeth present in one half of the mouth: 4 incisors, 2 canines, 4 pre-molars, and 6 molars. Da Vinci was the first anatomist known to have correctly noted the number and root structure of human teeth. The notes are an example of his mirror writing, which was written backwards from right to left, and could be read in a mirror

Canine olfactory system, artwork Featured Print

Canine olfactory system, artwork

Canine olfactory system. Artwork showing the complicated airways inside a dog's nose that allow olfaction (its sense of smell). Shown here is the shape of the airway, which extends from the dog's nostril (naris) to the cranial location above the eye. The cross-section reveals respiratory turbinates in the region of the nose responsible for heating and cooling air breathed in. Further back is the olfactory epithelium, where smells are actually sensed. The dog's brain is behind this. Small chemical molecules in the air (coloured spheres) are drawn in through the nostrils (yellow arrow) to bring them to the olfactory epithelium

Nose, mouth and throat

Nose, mouth and throat. Cutaway artwork of the anatomy of the nose, mouth and throat. The large nasal cavity (upper centre) is lined with nerves (yellow) branching from the olfactory bulb (above) that leads back to the brain. At the back of the nasal cavity, and also at left of the eye, are two of the facial sinuses (spaces in the bone). In the mouth, teeth are seen embedded in the jaw bones. The roof of the mouth is both bone and soft tissue (the soft palate). When closed, most of the mouth is filled with the tongue. The nose and mouth lead into the pharynx, which splits into the oesophagus (rear) and trachea (front). The top of the trachea is the larynx (voicebox, hole at lower right)
