A new optional course was introduced in the medical curriculum on the diverse aspects of anatomy. The topics include interesting anatomy-related topics with many different fields of anatomy/neuroanatomy. Although this knowledge is not necessarily required for the medical curriculum, it might help the student to learn anatomy with more interest and enthusiasm. The course also gives an insight into different kinds of Anatomy curriculum, like what kind of Anatomy a massage therapist or a veterinary needs in comparison to medical students and also shows some other Anatomy teaching systems from different universities worldwide. We have made an exhibition of the works students sent, further popularizing the subject of anatomy.

Expert lecturers were also invited for Dinosaur Anatomy and for Anatomy teaching in Art Schools.

The main topics are the following:
Anatomy and Art (Leonardo’s Anatomy to modern artists, parallelism between anatomy stuctures and art, creating art from structures; Rembrandt’s painting: Dr Tulp’s Anatomy);
Anatomy Museums and Bone Collections 
Anatomy of Tortures and Body Modicifactions
Anatomy of Antropology (from mummies to skull identifications)
Massage and Body Building Anatomy
Anatomy Teaching at other Universities
Eponymes - who is behind the anatomical names?
History of Anatomy and Surgery
Plastic Surgery and Anatomy
Heavy Metal and Anatomy
Cemetary Culture and Anatomy
Antropology and Comparative Anatomy

Students are offered to collect an anatomy-related topic themselves and submit a powerpoint presentation instead of writing a test. The experience of the first courses shows that the acceptance of the course is very good, students enjoyed these broad and interesting „borderline” aspects of anatomy and most students enjoyed preparing for a presentation themselves. We have made an exhibition of the works students sent, further popularizing the subject of anatomy.

The exhibition will show selected student works related to “Borderline Neuroscience” from presentations submitted for the course.

Selection, arrangement and translation of the collection was made by Viktoria Vicena (student researcher) and Balázs Fülöp MD.
