Joseph Jules Dejerine and Augusta Dejerine-Klumpke: Advancing Neurology at the Dawn of the 20th Century

Joseph Jules Dejerine (1849-1917), a French neurologist whose research focused early on the anatomy and pathology of the nervous system, and later on psychoneurosis, died 100 years ago on February
Added engraved title page from Thomas Willis' Cerebri anatome, 1666.

Celebrating a Pocket-Size Cerebri Anatome by Thomas Willis at 350 Years Old: Illustrations from Becker Library’s 1666 Edition

A little over 350 years ago, Thomas Willis of Oxford, England published Cerebri Anatome (Figure 1), which would go on to become highly cited by scholars. This work on the anatomy of the brain as a vehicle for viewing the soul or mind of the creator contains several scientific firsts. One is the first appearance of the term neurology1 and another is the first illustration of the Circle of Willis or Willis' Circle,2 an arterial circle at the base of the brain, by which "full circulation to all parts of the brain can be maintained even when the carotid or vertebral arteries are blocked."3

In her own words: Caroline Whitney

Dear Sir: - Before I left St. Louis last Spring, I spoke to you about certain aspirations of mine towards a Fellowship with the National Research Council. You may not remember the conversation, but I am taking advantage of your offer to help me if I should need advice.

William R. Gowers: clinical neurologist and artist

William R. Gowers (1845-1915) died 101 years ago.  I was first introduced to Gowers by an American Academy of Neurology fellow who requested many editions of his Manual of diseases of the nervous system. I continue to be amazed that he could capture so much of neurological signs and symptoms in line drawings.
