Herophilus was the founder of human anatomy as the first person to dissect human cadavers in Alexandria, Egypt, in the fourth century BCE. He described brain ventricles, sensory and motor nerves, studied the reproductive organs, pancreas, spleen, liver, and named the duodenum. Unfortunately, none of his books survived the Alexandria library fire in 272 CE.
