A Medical & Historical Re-evaluation of Neuroanatomy and Neurophysiology in Ancient Egypt

Join us in Manchester on the 15th May, 2024 at Hetherington’s Cafe Bar, 8 Pollard St, Manchester, M4 7AJ (7.30-10pm). I’ll be discussing my research on the “Importance and Function of the Human Brain in Ancient Egypt” for the Pint of Science Festival.

What understanding did the ancient Egyptians have of neuroanatomy and neurophysiology and did they really discard the brain during the mummification process? Come and find out!

Coffin of Nedjemankh who was a priest of the god “Heryshaf” at the city of Ahnas. His coffin is made of gilded cartonnage with inlaid eyes and is covered with scenes as well as funerary spells from the Book of the Dead. It dates to the Ptolemaic Period (332-30 BCE).

The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York repatriated the coffin to Egypt.
