Sage Sayings of Dr. Andrew Still Taylor

" Osteopathy believes that all parts of the human body act on chemical compounds, and from the general supply manufactures the substances for local wants."

" I contend that the curing comes direct from the liberation of the interspinous and costal nerves freed from bone pressure on the nerves of motion, sensation and nutrition."

Truhlar Robert E. Doctor A.T. Still in the living. Chagrin Falls, Ohio, 1950. P. 30, 31.

Website Review


The American Association of Anatomists (AAA) founded in Washington, D.C. in 1888, for the “advancement of anatomical science.”

AAA has created this collection of links to high-quality resources that cover five topical areas: anatomy, the brain, histology, development, and specialized topics. Each area has at least six links, but the centerpiece is the anatomy area, with fifteen resources in total. The "Development" area includes the Edinburgh Mouse Atlas, a multidimensional human embryo, virtual human embryo, and MicroMRI Atlas of Mouse Development (a detailed model of the developing mouse).
