Book Description :

Diseases of the nervous system are a relatively small but vitally important part of medicine. There was no scientific basis for diagnosis or treatment until the seventeenth century when Dr Thomas Willis (1621OCo1675) and his team tackled anatomy by dissection of the nervous system, physiology by animal experiments and pathology by post-mortem analysis. It was Willis who first used the word OC neurologyOCO and his team, who were among the founders of the Royal Society, included Christopher Wren who, besides being famous as an architect of London''s churches, drew the first modern diagram of the human brain. Developments in our knowledge of the nervous system in the following centuries, and the unique importance of clinical neurology, became globally recognised through the work of Whytt, Heberden, Hughlings Jackson, Gowers and many others. The work and discoveries of these eminent specialists were extended with the introduction of such neurosciences as neurophysiology, neuropathology and neuro-radiology, and this is the first comprehensive account of a battle with the unknown by determined practitioners.

Book Description :

This highly interesting collection of historical articles started as a series of “space-fillers”, the journalist's device to mitigate the harshness of white space at the end of scientific papers. The author has expanded these short essays and included several additional articles and biographical reviews. He has also incorporated some longer, more discursive essays, which should be relevant to neurologists, physicians and those working in internal medicine and psychiatry. The reader attracted to medical and neurological history should find much of interest in these diverse topics. Contents:Anatomical and Neurophysiological PhenomenaAspects of Cerebral DisordersDementiasHeadachesEpilepsy and Related DisordersCerebrospinal Fluid and HydrocephalusStrokes and Vascular DiseasesOcular DisordersCranial Nerve DisordersDiseases of the Spine, the Spinal Cord, and RadiculopathiesNeuralgias and PolyneuropathiesPhysical SignsGenetic, Developmental and Congenital DisordersMovement DisordersNeuromuscular DiseasesMiscellaneousIllnesses of the Famous, and Some Medical Truants Readership: Those interested in the history of neurology, neuroscience, general and psychological medicine. Keywords:Cerebral Disorders;Headaches;Strokes;Cranial Nerve Disorders;Spinal Diseases;Physical Signs;Movement Disorders;Neuromuscular Diseases;Dementias;Ocular Disorders;Biographical HistoryReviews:“Taken on its own terms the book is a success … some of these chapters are extremely interesting and well researched … this is an interesting work.”Neuromuscular Disorders “… it is a very interesting publication with lots of illustrations, photographs and quotations from early works. Students of nuerology and neurophysicians will be thrilled to read it.”World Neurology “It would be a real asset to all medical libraries. It is quite amazing how the author has so successfully covered the medical contributions of Vesalius, Virchow, Broca and others. The author's enthusiasm is quite infectious and the book will encourage readers to delve further into the fascinating realm of medical history.”Alan Meltzer ex-Senior Medical Advisor Laboratory Centre for Disease Control, Health Canada “Fragments of neurological history is one of those amazing books that can be dipped into at any page to provide fresh information. Here is also a reference book that can be read from cover to cover, to help us enjoy our three main indications for the study of medical history — to avoid the mistakes of the past, as a rewarding academic discipline, and because it is fun … For those yet to discover neurohistory pleasures, there is not a better book to encourage them to start the journey down the road of neurological history.”Brain

Book Description :

This volume of essays examines the problem of mind, looking at how the problem has appeared to neuroscientists (in the widest sense) from classical antiquity through to contemporary times. Beginning with a look at ventricular neuropsychology in antiquity, this book goes on to look at Spinozan ideas on the links between mind and body, Thomas Willis and the foundation of Neurology, Hooke’s mechanical model of the mind and Joseph Priestley’s approach to the mind-body problem. The volume offers a chapter on the 19th century Ottoman perspective on western thinking. Further chapters trace the work of nineteenth century scholars including George Henry Lewes, Herbert Spencer and Emil du Bois-Reymond. The book covers significant work from the twentieth century, including an examination of Alfred North Whitehead and the history of consciousness, and particular attention is given to the development of quantum consciousness. Chapters on slavery and the self and the development of an understanding of Dualism bring this examination up to date on the latest 21st century work in the field. At the heart of this book is the matter of how we define the problem of consciousness itself: has there been any progress in our understanding of the working of mind and brain? This work at the interface between science and the humanities will appeal to experts from across many fields who wish to develop their understanding of the problem of consciousness, including scholars of Neuroscience, Behavioural Science and the History of Science.

Book Description :

Jean-Martin Charcot, the iconic 19th century French scientist, is still regarded today as the most famous and celebrated neurologist in the world. Despite the development of strong independent schools of thought in the USA, UK and Germany, his 'Salpêtrière' school has become symbolic of the early development and rise of neurological practice and research. This book presents a fresh look at the origins of nervous system medicine, and at the fate of Charcot's school and pupils. Special emphasis is placed upon the parallels and interactions between developments in neurology and mental medicine, clearly demonstrating that Charcot is not only the father of clinical neurology, but also wielded enormous influence upon the field we would come to know as psychiatry. Providing new insights into the life and work of Charcot and his pupils, this book will make fascinating reading for neurologists, psychiatrists, physicians and historians.

Since its founding in 1957, the World Federation of Neurology (WFN) has been deeply integrated in the development of international collaboration in the field of neurology, and has played a key part in asserting with dissemination of information and the need to learn from each other, independent of political systems, but with a basis in the development of democracy worldwide. This book covers the history of the WFN from its founding in Brussels in 1957 to the present day. Written by a former President and long-standing officer of the WFN, The History of the World Federation of Neurology chronicles the formation and expansion of the WFN, the development of its structure and various committees, and the evolution of its global biennial meeting, the World Congress of Neurology. Sections of the text focus on the key neurologists involved in the development of the WFN, including Houston Merritt, Pearce Bailey Jr, and Ludo van Bogaert, to name but a few, as well as the history of its educational publications, including World Neurology and Journal of the Neurological Sciences.

Book Description :

"In this book, the second in our medico-historical series, Dr. Walther Riese portrays the vast panorama of the history of neurologic thought, breaking it down into six panels, each one of which is a window through which he, with the luminous thought of the historian and philosopher, casts new light upon the neurology. The author first considers the knowledge of the function of the nervous system, which in some respects preceded the knowledge of its anatomy; he then analyzes the history of the knowledge of the nervous impulse and of reflex action; he proceeds to present the historical evolution of the theory of cerebral localizations and of the rediscovery of the totality of the being; and lastly he examines the problem of pain in neurology. Like the panels of a triptych, the sections of this book are beautifully integrated, conjuring a dramatic and colorful picture of man's search for knowledge of himself and of his basic medical problems by exploring the organs of the nervous system and its unfathomed functions"--Introduction.

Book Description :

Neuropsychology has become a very important aspect for neurologists in clinical practice as well as in research. Being a specialized field in psychology, its long history is based on different historical developments in brain science and clinical neurology. In this volume, we want to show how present concepts of neuropsychology originated and were established by outlining the most important developments since the end of the 19th century. The articles of this book that cover topics such as aphasia, amnesia and dementia show a great multicultural influence due to an editorship and authorship that spans all developmental initiatives in Europe, Asia, and America. This book gives a better understanding of the development of higher brain function studies and is an interesting read for neurologists, psychiatrists, psychologists, neurosurgeons, historians, and anyone else interested in the history of neuropsychology.

Book Description :

The neurologists describes how Victorian physicians located in a medical culture that privileged general knowledge over narrow specialism came to be transformed into the specialised physicians we now call neurologists. Relying entirely upon hitherto unseen primary sources drawn from archives across Britain, Europe and North America, this book analyses the emergence of neurology in the context of the development of modern medicine in Britain. The neurologists thus surveys the patterns of change and modernisation that influenced British medical culture throughout the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. In so doing, it ultimately seeks an account of how neurological knowledge acquired such an expansive view of human nature as to become concerned in the last decades of the twentieth century with the human sciences, philosophy, art and literature.
