There are also some displays of whole body dissections, revealing the fine details of the nervous system and the arterial system of the human body, reminiscent of the dissected human bodies of the Human Body Museum (fig.) within the Faculty of Medicine at the Chulalongkorn University.

 

More distressing are perhaps the many displays of cross-sections of corpses and parts of human bodies.
