No books have been published on the practice of neuroscience in the eighteenth century, a time of transition and discovery in science and medicine. This volume explores neuroscience and reviews developments in anatomy, physiology, and medicine in the era some call the Age of Reason, and others the Enlightenment. Topics include how neuroscience adopted electricity as the nerve force, how disorders such as aphasia and hysteria were treated, Mesmerism, and more.

MEDIA REVIEWS

From the reviews:

"An attempt at understanding questions of body and mind based on questions shaped by the philosophical premises of the time. ... this volume provides a comprehensive set of works outlining major issues of the long 18th century and appears set to become an excellent reference book. ... will have special appeal to anyone interested in the history of neuroscience, neurology, psychology, and medicine, as well as serving as a valuable resource for the contemporary neuroscientist and psychologist interested in the basis of current thinking." (Simon Boag, PsycCRITIQUES, Vol. 53 (26), 2008)

"Brain, Mind, and Medicine is well written, nicely illustrated and has its uses. It will appeal to physicians and historians of the neurosciences, and may have some use within undergraduate teaching." (Stephen Casper, History of Psychiatry, Vol. 20 (1), 2009)
