This article is autopsy of a deceased church pdf the biological examination process. Plant and animal bodies are dissected to analyze the structure and function of its components.

A key principle in the dissection of human cadavers is the prevention of human disease to the dissector. Specimens are dissected in morgues or anatomy labs. When provided, they are evaluated for use as a “fresh” or “prepared” specimen. A “fresh” specimen may be dissected within some days, retaining the characteristics of a living specimen, for the purposes of training. Most dissection involves the careful isolation and removal of individual organs, called the Virchow technique.

An alternative more cumbersome technique involves the removal of the entire organ body, called the Letulle technique. This technique allows a body to be sent to a funeral director without waiting for the sometimes time-consuming dissection of individual organs. Ghon involves dissection of three separate blocks of organs – the thorax and cervical areas, gastrointestinal and abdominal organs, and urogenital organs. Dissection of individual organs involves accessing the area in which the organ is situated, and systematically removing the anatomical connections of that organ to its surroundings.

During this period, the first exploration into full human anatomy was performed rather than a base knowledge gained from ‘problem-solution’ delving. Before and after this time investigators appeared to largely limit themselves to animals. While there was a deep taboo within the Greek culture concerning human dissection, there was a strong push by the government to build Greece into a hub of medical insight. The ancient societies that were rooted in India left behind artwork on how to kill animals during a hunt.

The images showing how to kill most effectively depending on the game being hunted relay an intimate knowledge of both external and internal anatomy as well as the relative importance of organs. The knowledge was mostly gained through hunters preparing the recently captured prey. Once the roaming lifestyle was no longer necessary it was replaced in part-by the civilization that formed in the Indus Valley. Unfortunately, there is little that remains from this time to indicate whether or not dissection occurred, the civilization was lost to the Aryan people invading.
