Transcript

  • 1. Who’s who in Renaissance Anatomy Mr McDonald
  • 2. Key Individuals
    • Johannes Guinter
    • Andreas Vesalius
    • William Harvey
    • Realdo Colombo*
    • Gabriele Fallopia*
    • Fabricius*
    • You might not have heard of these – don’t worry
  • 3. Johannes Guinter (also known as Winter)
    • Translated a text by Galen.
    • This superseded the standard medical text which was again a translation of Galen’s work.
    • This book however was far superior to the earlier translation by De Luzzi.
    • He taught Vesalius too!
  • 4. Andreas Vesalius
    • Anatomist and Professor at Padua.
    • He created Tabulae Sex , Letters on Venesection and Fabric of the Human Body .
    • He used art to help pass on greater understanding of the human body.
    • He corrected the work of Galen.
  • 5. William Harvey
    • Studied at Padua.
    • Examined the circulation of the blood and the heart.
    • He wrote his ideas down in ‘On the motion of the human heart’.
    • He showed the heart was a pump and that blood flowed one way.
  • 6. Realdo Columbo
    • Succeeded Vesalius when he died in Jerusalem.
    • He proved that blood flowed from the right to left ventricle via the lungs.
    • He noted that the blood changed colour (mixing with air).
    • He published De Re Anatomico in 1559.
  • 7. Gabriele Falloppia
    • Again at Padua!
    • He researched the working of the womb!
    • The Fallopian tubes are named after him!
  • 8. Geronimo Fabricius
    • Padua yet again.
    • Seriously…Is there anywhere else?
    • He worked prior to Harvey on circulation studying the valves in the veins.
    • He published De Venarum Ostolis in 1603.
    • He taught William Harvey!
  • 9. Key Point
    • Vesalius was a general anatomist, men such as Falloppia and Fabricus were more specialised in their understanding of anatomy.
