Neurological Eponyms

Edited by Peter J. Koehler, George W. Bruyn, and John M. S. Pearce

Neurology abounds with eponyms--Babinski's sign, Guillain-Barre' syndrome, Alzheimer's disease, etc. Neurologists, however, are often hazy about the origin of these terms. This book brings together 55 of the most common eponyms related to the neurological examination, neuroanatomy, and neurological diseases. Each chapter contains a short biography, a quotation from and discussion of the original publication, and a discussion of the subsequent evolution and significance of the eponym within clinical neurology.
