Human bodies are full of mysteries. The human being has continually studied their own bodies and persevered through challenging questions to understand how to survive and to unravel the mechanisms of the body. In this exhibition, we explain the structure and the function of the body, while examining the history of research efforts and meritorious deeds by our predecessors since the Renaissance. Here, we also provide a glimpse of the leading-edge studies on the body and to appreciate how they develop.
