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.


An Overview of Neurological History; Anatomical and Neurophysiological Phenomena; Aspects of Cerebral Disorders; Dementias; Headaches; Epilepsy and Related Disorders; Cerebrospinal Fluid and Hydrocephalus; Strokes and Vascular Diseases; Ocular Disorders; Cranial Nerve Disorders; Diseases of the Spine, the Spinal Cord and Radiculopathies; Neuralgias and Polyneuropathies; Physical Signs; Genetic, Developmental and Congenital Disorders; Movement Disorders; Neuromuscular Diseases; Illnesses of the Famous, and Medical Truants; and other articles.
