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.

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 :

Commencing with European settlement in Australia and the medical practitioners of that time, The Flowering of a Waratah traces the development of neurology in Australia from its dependence on medical advances in Britain, Europe and North America to the present day where the high standards of clinical neurology and research are acknowledged internationally. The history not only expands on some of the personalities who have contributed to the present high international standing enjoyed by Australian neurology and some of the reasons for this reputation, including the Australian Association of Neurologists itself, but it also contains the records of membership and financial accounts and of papers presented to early scientific meetings of the Association. The Flowering of a Waratah is a superbly detailed account of the history of neurology in Australia which will enrich the professional lives of future generations of Australian neurologists with a sense of being, as they and the Australian Association of Neurologists continue to flourish.

Book Description :

HISTORY OF BRITISH NEUROLOGY by F Clifford Rose (Imperial College School of Medicine, UK) 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 (16211675) 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 "neurology" 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 :

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.
