Anatomy and neurosurgery relation regardless many other departments always have been very close. Why do we need to learn anatomy? There has been always a connection between research interest and clinical practice. How can we learn it? Is through clinical application? Is this way ethical? It is questionable. Books and colored atlases do not provide satisfactory information. However, 3D integrity only can be learned with cadaver dissection and this personal experience cannot be transfer to
more » ... Every individual should do the dissections personally. During all these periods mostly there is not enough time and motivation. At the beginning some questions may arise: Is learning anatomy necessary? What will we learn? We already know. Most of the learned subjects in anatomy are unnecessary and are not used. However, to be honest with ourselves, we need to ask how much we know and how much we do not. To understand clinical neuroanatomy concept we need to start from clinic. Ask the right question?
