We live in a wondrous world filled with marvels all around us, but sometimes we forget. Getting caught up in our daily lives most people barely stop to smell the roses, much less open the roses to look inside. Well, it turns out that there are beautiful secrets hidden underneath and inside things you would never even think to take a closer look at.
So scroll down and take a look at some of the rare photos that reveal the unseen side of things.
1- This Is What A Clean Heart Looks Like
A ghost heart is obtained by washing away all donor cells until you’re left with a protein scaffold. This ghost heart is ready to be injected with a transplant recipient’s stem cells so a new heart – one that won’t be rejected – can be grown.
2- This Is An Intact Human Nervous System
In 1925 two medical students in Kirksville, Missouri was challenged to dissect a cadaver’s nervous system, starting from the brain downward, but leaving the entire system in one piece. The process took the students – M.A. Schalck and L.P. Ramsdell-over 1,500 hours. Their “blood, sweat and tears” produced this extraordinary display, located at the Museum of Osteopathic Medicine at A.T. Still University (ATSU) in Kirksville. There are only 4 of these in the world.
