Dissection and Perception: Changes in our Fascial Understanding through Anatomical History with Lauri Nemetz
(Does not earn CEUs)
Our perception informs what we understand in anatomy, and particularly the way fascia has been traditionally revealed or discarded. Dissection techniques throughout time have produced images that alter our thinking of body perception. We will explore some of the changes in anatomical understanding and trace the historical progression of dissection, from ancient practices to new ideas in connection (such as Anatomy Trains) to methods of decellurization to plastination. Enjoy this lecture filled with anatomical images (old and new!)
