Additional Information


Nomenclature

Nicolaus Steno (January 10, 1638 - November 25, 1686) was a Danish pioneer in both anatomy and geology. At a time when scientific questions were mostly answered by appeal to ancient authorities, Steno was bold enough to trust his own eyes, even when his observations differed from traditional doctrines. Steno first studied anatomy, beginning with a focus on the muscular system and the nature of muscle contraction. He used geometry to show that a contracting muscle changes its shape but not its volume.
