Explain the significance of Galen & Hippocrates in the understanding of anatomy?
Hi,

Maybe you could say something like they promoted the clinical method of observation. e.g. the Theory of the 4 Humours that Hippocrates came up with was the 1st *natural* theory
And Galen did a lot of dissections, etc

does this at all ?

Galen carried out a public dissection of a pig to prove that Greek medicine was wrong to think the heart controlled the body. His theory of the body as a system dominated medicine for 1,400 years.
