Keywords: brain ventricles | anatomy | antiquity | Renaissance | history

In this article we have tried to narrate ventricular anatomy from its start in antiquity to the transitionalists of the Renaissance. The crude drawings of the Alexandrian series can hardly be called “anatomical“. The accompanying texts consisted mostly of concepts unrelated to sketches. With the Renaissance there came an era where true knowledge, through dissections, revealed the actual structures of the ventricles and ended the unfounded arguments of ventricular function.
