LEONARDO DA VINCI (1452-1519): OVERVIEW OF NEUROANATOMY CONTRIBUTION
Leonardo da Vinci (born April 15, 1452, in Florence, died May 2, 1519 in France) (fig. 1) was an Italian painter, engineer, encyclopedic personality and remarkable neuroanatomist. He was born from Leonardo di ser Piero da Vinci, a wealthy notary and landlord from Florence, and Caterina de Meo Lippi, a young peasant woman. Due to his wealth status, da Vinci couldn’t afford a superior education, so he received an elementary education from his paternal grandfather Antonio, which consisted in reading, writing and learning arithmetic skills.
