Episode Notes

Professor Adam Taylor is a very modern anatomist who is on hand to correct our misconceptions around this important discipline. It’s wrong to think anatomy is an old science and there is no more to learn. There are seven billion people on the planet and no two people are the same. We talk cadavers, dissection and how we teach anatomy these days. We also get into the public understanding of anatomy and research Adam has done suggests knowledge levels are surprisingly low. So, if your anatomy doesn’t stretch much beyond the knee bone is connected to the ankle bone… then this episode is going to open your eyes to anatomical science.

Even better, why not mention it to a colleague, friend, or family when you next speak to them. In fact, why not give them a call and meet up anyway? All the evidence suggests you’ll be healthier and benefit. And, if you can and it’s relevant, thanks for mentioning the podcast to them.
