Illustration of the human spinal cord and brain

Spinal cord. Computer-enhanced historical illustr- ation of the spinal cord and brain of a human. Both organs are seen without the skeletal structures (such as the skull & vertebrae) which normally protect them. Red and blue blood vessels are seen branching over the brain (at top) and spinal cord. The spinal cord has 32 pairs of spinal nerves which are seen branching off at either side with associated blood vessels. The spinal nerves connect the body to the central nervous system (CNS). CNS is the collective name for the brain and spinal cord which control all nervous activity within the body. Drawing by the famous Italian anatomist Paolo Mascagni(1755-1815)

EDITORS COMMENTS
This print showcases an intricate illustration of the human spinal cord and brain, created by the renowned Italian anatomist Paolo Mascagni. Stripped of their protective skeletal structures, the spinal cord and brain are laid bare for us to marvel at their complexity. The image reveals a network of red and blue blood vessels branching out over the brain and spinal cord, emphasizing their vital role in sustaining these organs. Highlighted in this artwork are the 32 pairs of spinal nerves that branch off from either side of the spinal cord, accompanied by associated blood vessels. These nerves serve as crucial connectors between our body and the central nervous system (CNS), which encompasses both the brain and spinal cord. It is within this CNS that all nervous activity controlling our bodily functions takes place. The artist's attention to detail is evident in every stroke, capturing not only scientific accuracy but also artistic beauty. This mesmerizing piece invites us to contemplate the intricacies of our own anatomy while appreciating Mascagni's skillful portrayal. Science Photo Library presents this remarkable print as part of its extensive collection on art, anatomy, and neuroscience. It serves as a testament to humanity's ongoing exploration into understanding ourselves through science and artistry alike.
