I read the wikipedia entry and I am sort of confused.
In dog, the nose is toward the front. That's anterior. So I conclude that human nose is anterior.
In dog, the head is on the back. So that's dorsal. So I concluded that humans' top head is dorsal.
Yet that's not how things seem to work on anatomy.
We call humans' top head anterior. We also call human nose direction as ventral.
How could that be?
The whole system of anterior, dorsal, ventral, posterior is there so we can see humans like we see dogs (at least anatomically).
Yet it changes again.
So which one is right?
Let me put it this way
Dog's chin is ventral from the eye In humans, is humans' chin ventral from the eye too? or posterior?
What about the nose? Dog's nose is it's anterior most organ.
In humans, is the nose anterior too?
I mean, if we're going to have different terms for humans and dogs, might as well use words like up, down, front, back right?
