In the fall of 1925, two medical students in Kirksville, Missouri, were presented with a cadaver and a challenge. Their task: to dissect the human nervous system, starting at the base of the brain and working downward, so that the system would become one continuous part.

Over the next year, the students – M.A. Schalck and L.P. Ramsdell – spent 1,500 hours completing the arduous dissection.A viral photo posted on Reddit on Jan. 30 shows the fruits of their extraordinary labor, which are still at A.T. Steele University (ATSU) Osteopathic Medicine in Kirksville It’s on permanent display at the museum.

“Medical students come into the museum and stare at it in amazement,” museum director Jason Haxton told Live Science. “Sometimes they’ll run in after a test to check their work. People who are familiar with dissections say it’s a miraculous piece of work.”
