You might recognize some terms! You will see the model in the Atlas 3D viewer. Use your mouse to view it from different angles, or to dig deeper: to view inner layers, to learn about the names of parts and access the lexical and historical discussions about the Greek terms, or to learn more about the anatomical details or about the research and sources informing this model.
