Has anyone checked out Bodies: Revealed over on Alta Arden?
I saw this exhibit earlier this year in a different city, and it’s a must for anyone in the medical field (or for those of us who feel we’ve missed our calling.Â Any other fans of the Mutter Museum at The College of Physicians of Philadelphia out there?)
The bodies are presented respectfully, and they give a close-up view of muscles, nerves, organs, bones, the circulatory system, what certain diseases look like, and a multitude of other fascinating facets of anatomy.Â It’s amazing how well engineered we are. I was with a fellow runner, so she and I were pointing out the different things that have ailed us over the years, most notably the piriformis muscle, patellar tendon, and iliotibial band.
The Sacramento exhibit is just one of many exhibitions of actual cadavers that have been preserved and dissected — all bodies used were donated to science.Â Check it out, 10am-10pm daily, through March 2008.
Group discounts are available, so here’s a chance for sacrag meet-up, and we can truly see that we’re really all the same inside.
