LOSARDO, Ricardo Jorge  and  BINVIGNAT, Octavio. Anatomical Graphic Symbolism in the Communication Process. Int. J. Morphol. [online]. 2021, vol.39, n.3, pp.739-741. ISSN 0717-9502.

Communication sciences improve the organization of life in society. In the interdisciplinarity that characterizes it, it also draws on anatomy. The anatomical graphic symbology, for example, the skull or bony head, due to its universal nature, facilitates the communication process and warns of potential health damages, sometimes of mortal considerations. This article highlights the participation of anatomy in communication processes.

Keywords : Anatomy; Communication; Symbols; Health warning; Safety and health.
