Figure of dissected cadaver had a lecture of miology from a professor of anatomy I.V. Buyalsky. Shevchenko January 10, 1841 was credited to the list of students who can listen to the anatomy course [Taras Shevchenko: The documents and materials for the biography. 1814 1861. K., 1982. p. 29 32. ¹ 65]. But in this school year that ended June 26, 1841, the professor gave only a brief general anatomy and osteology [Russian state historical archive, fund 789, op. 1, Part II, ¹ 2452, ff. 3]. Next year (from August 21, 1841 to June 1842) consisted of a full course of anatomy, including miology [Ibid, ff. 6, 11, 11 back]. Miology on cadavers usually studied in the winter months [Marhoryn E.M. Elijah Buyalsky. L., 1948. p. 85, 86, 88].
