The History of the World Federation of Neurology Book Excerpt:

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.

Following Charcot A Forgotten History of Neurology and Psychiatry Book Excerpt:

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.

Fragments of Neurological History Book Excerpt:

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

The History of Neuroscience Book Excerpt:

Neuroscience is the science of the brain and the nervous system. This volume explores the early history of the field, including landmark case studies like that of the railroad worker Phineas Gage's impalement by an iron rod, an accident he survived, though not without personality changes. Also examined are early studies of madness and genius, physical treatments for psychiatric disorders, and the categorization of neurological differences and disorders, such as autism. The emergence of cognitive science in the modern era is also covered, including theories of intelligence, learning, language development, machine intelligence, and consciousness. Loaded with color and archival images and graphics, this volume illuminates one of our greatest and most enduring mysteries, the human mind.

History of British Neurology Book Excerpt:

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.

The neurologists Book Excerpt:

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.

War Neurology Book Excerpt:

Interest in the history of neurological science has increased significantly during the last decade, but the significance of war has been overlooked in related research. In contrast, this book highlights war as a factor of progress in neurological science. Light is shed on this little-known topic through accounts given by neurologists in war, experiences of soldiers suffering from neurological diseases, and chapters dedicated to neurology in total and contemporary war. Written by experts, the contributions in this book focus on the Napoleonic Wars, the American Civil War, the Franco-Prussian War of 1870, World Wars I and II, and recent conflicts such as Vietnam or Afghanistan. Comprehensive yet concise and accessible, this book serves as a fascinating read for neurologists, neurosurgeons, psychiatrists, historians, and anyone else interested in the history of neurology.
