Our 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.
