      I have seen a heart in action on a live stream of heart surgery before. I have also held and touched a human heart during an anatomy class during my degree. This was really exciting to see. This was from a person who had donated their body to science research. It is such an interesting structure and they had cut it open so we could see what the inside looks like of a heart with its different sections which the blood flows through to allow the heart to work and function correctly. You could also see the valves which control the flow of blood through the heart.
