Minds Behind the Brain: A History of the Pioneers and Their Discoveries
Stanley Finger (au)
A series of profiles that trace the evolution of our knowledge about the brain. Beginning almost 5000 years ago, with the ancient Egyptian study of “the marrow of the skull,” Finger takes us on a fascinating journey from the classical world of Hippocrates, to the time of Descartes & the era of Broca & Ramon y Cajal, to modern researchers such as Sperry. We meet Galen, a man of titanic ego & abrasive disposition; Vesalius, a contemporary of Copernicus, who pushed our understanding of human anatomy to new heights; Otto Loewi, pioneer in neurotransmitters; & Rita Levi-Montalcini, discoverer of nerve growth factor. For each individual, he examines the philosophy, tools, books, & ideas that brought new insights. Illustrations.
