This is a sequel and companion to an excellent book reviewed in The Journal of May 19, 1956, page 294. The present volume offers biographies of Golgi, Nissl, Alzheimer, Brodmann, Cécile and Oskar Vogt, Helmholtz, Quincke, Esquirol, Meynert, Wernicke, Meyer, Gaupp, Marie, Babinski, Head, von Economo, Horsley, Dandy, Vincent, Dubois, and Simon. Each biography is the work of an author who is himself distinguished as a neurologist or psychiatrist, and those chapters which were originally written in English or French appear here in German. A concluding chapter sketches the development of institutions for teaching and research in neurology and psychiatry in France, Great Britain, Italy, Russia, Switzerland, Belgium, Holland, Scandinavia, Spain, and Portugal. Each chapter is illustrated with a portrait of the subject and closes with a brief bibliography. There is an index of names.
