earliest ancestors probably became curious about the body during illnesses and
injuries. At these times, they visited shamans who relied on superstition and
magic. Throughout early time, this curiosity lead to discoveries of the healing
powers of certain herbs and potions, especially to treat coughs, headaches, and
other common problems. Not until about 2,500 years ago did these superstitious
attitudes change and the body was looked at in the new light of modern science.
Experiments, accurate observations, and tried techniques rapidly expanded
knowledge of the human body. Greek and Latin words were used as a basis to
describe body part locations and to explain their functions. This formed the
basis for anatomy and physiology.
