Erasistratus Of Chios And His Major Discoveries Part 1
Physician Erasistratus of Chios lived during the late BCE period between 304-250 B.C. During his life, he was heavily dedicated to the medical world, obsessed with the human body. Today, he is credited with being one of the major founders of modern neuroscience as he discovered several nerves.
He then was the first to find out they worked for the brain and skeletal regions overall. Yet he was not just focused on the brain but also on several other areas of the body. He lived shortly after Hippocrates passed away, but also practiced in Alexandria. The two did not agree on everything but did have some similarities.
