2. Neurology

  • A. W. Wilcox
Extract

The first part of this article consists of an interesting history of many attempts made to localise the mind in the human body before and since that made by Gall in the first decade of the nineteenth century. After mentioning the work done by Bouillaud, Flourens, and others, the author states that no further advance was made for twenty years or more, until Broca, in 1861, localised the centre for articulate speech. He then describes the experiments in cerebral localisation made by Fritsch and Hitzig in 1870, closely followed by those of Ferrier, Horsley, Schafer, and many others, resulting in the determination of centres of control for nearly or quite all the groups of voluntary muscles, for general sensation, and for the more important special sensations of sight and hearing.
