Cutting up dead bodies carefully.

Then; cutting up dead bodies even more carefully with smaller knives

In addition to the dissection of dead bodies, they also learned a lot from studying people with various damaged nerves. So they found out due to neck wounds which ones were necessary for breathing, which controlled the digestive tract, which ones when into the arms and which ones when into the legs.
